Price in GBP? Also is this the revised model that allows HDR passthrough?

1.1

Hello! Price in GBP is £259.99 RRP.

1.2

But is it the revised model…

If you believe the picture then yes, you can see the revised slot on the side of the headset.

What’s the price in real money? What even is that sign next to the price? Is it a currency that our forefathers used to use?

2.1

We always give prices in Euro, since we’re the PlayStation Europe blog

Your profile says you’re in the UK, so GBP RRP is £259.99.

2.2

But not every country in Europe uses the Euro so therefore any countries affected by this price drop should have their own country’s currency shown

2.3

Tempting.

Can you please let me know the price in Aussie Dollars?

3.1

The RRP in Australian dollars is $419.95. This new price will become available on 2nd April.

I feel a bit tempted. But I don’t know, there aren’t really that many PSVR games I want to play. Moss looks lovely though. Guess I also need to buy a second Move controller.

4.1

Moss is an excellent VR game ! i’m hoping there will be more games like this ( puzzle / action & VR based ) :)

Wipeout Omega just got a free VR update today, it’s meant to be brilliant.

I’d definitely be interested if I could be sure that I’m purchasing the latest revision (CUH-ZVR2) without having to check the code on the box, something not possible when buying online. No online retailer around here seems willing to bother specifying if it’s the CUH-ZVR1 or CUH-ZVR2 version.

5.1

Most likely this sale is to clear out the stockrooms and make room for the new revised model.

What is the difference between the two?

5.3

The only major difference is that the new model allows HDR passthrough. If you don’t have a HDR telly then it’s no biggie to get V1.

Can we get information when PS VR 2.0 is available to Europe?

6.1

Also waiting for VR 2.0 in Europe. But I didn’t see any info about that.

Been waiting for this answer as well, Supertired of switching cables. My Ps4 will be destroyed soon.

Edit: Oh! It’s being replaced with the old one, so all new ones will be version 2.0 :D

6.3

Its already available in Europe ? Here in Belgium it is atleast :)

If you live in Belfast I wouldn’t mind showing it to you :) Love to spread the word of PSVR :D

9.2

Dam Na I don’t live in Belfast but thanks anyway

Buy it off Amazon, give it a few tries, then return it if you don’t want it :). Some people need to play VR a few times before they get their ‘VR legs’, but others like myself have been fine with it from the start.

Will the solo headset also go down in price? I already have the camera, just need the headset and one more Move controller.

How long ’til this goes the way of the Vita?

Either a year, or until the PS5 comes out.

No chance! Vita was going against a Nintendo handheld which dominated the market! PSVR is pretty much by itself in the console space but in the company of PCVR, which greatly helps to increase the amount of content produced. I have yet to find someone who did not enjoy it, including non gamers, and have already convinced 3 people to buy it after they tried it.

PSVR has only been going from strenght to strenght since launch. PsVITA was DOA, no analogy possible.

It’s going from strength to strength, which is why the price was cut by a quarter in just over a year, right?

The Vita sold badly because the initial library was pretty sparse, you know, kind of like VR.

The Vita, however badly it did, has still sold 7x more than PS VR.

Nah, i just can’t get into VR. I don’t even like first person games to begin with, never mind ones i gotta strap a device onto my noggin and risk feeling sick. What do I like? That other Playstation thingy. Ya know. The handheld one. Rita or something like that. Do that one again.

When Will we finally see the new move controllers in Europe?

They were announced last October. Have bought a few move only games and don’t want to buy outdated hardware. Really like to have a better battery and micro usb to minimise the pile of charging cables in my household.

13.1

There are no new Move controllers.

They’re just the PS3 ones repackaged, no upgrades whatsoever.

@MaxDiehard There are.

Revised as CECH-ZCM 2 J, they feature Micro USB (opposed to Mini USB) and a 1900 mAh battery (opposed to 1350 mAh).

Though it is still unknown whether and where the revised stock is already available.

well that’s a discount
