The bundle includes camera, Move controllers and game.
On Friday Sony announced pre-order information for its upcoming PlayStation VR headset. The special bundle pre-order opens at 7:00 a.m. PT on Tuesday, March 22nd for a cost of $499 in the US.
The $499 price tag is $100 more than the headset by itself, but the bundle will include two PlayStation Move motion controllers, the PlayStation Camera and a PlayStation VR Worlds games disc.
The camera is required for the PlayStation VR to operate, but the Move controllers are optional. Yes some games you can play just with PlayStation’s DualShock 4 controller that comes with the gaming system, but for that extra level of interaction and immersion you are going to want to own a pair of the Move controllers as well.
PlayStation VR Worlds is created by London Studio and combines five VR experiences into one game built exclusively for the PS VR headset. In PlayStation VR Worlds you will be treated to experiences that let you dive beneath the waves, tackle 360 combat as you fight off alien hordes from all around you, or end up in a face-to-face interrogation with a deranged and furious mobster.
The five experiences included in the VR Worlds pre-order bundle include:
The London Heist is a gangland thriller that is best controlled with the Move controllers as you undertake an audacious robbery and then try to escape.
Into The Deep (working title) puts you to work as a deep sea salvor in this emotional underwater roller coaster.
VR Luge uniquely has you laying down in a slalom position racing down some California hillsides as you dodge cars coming at you with horns blaring or slide underneath a massive 18-wheel truck.
Danger Ball is a futuristic sport where you must win or die. Use your head to strike and spin the ball in this game to become champion.
Scavenger’s Odyssey is a cab based sci-fi adventure where you play an alien treasure hunter. Your craft can leap huge distances, climb walls, hurl debris with your Scavenger beam, and pummel alien critters with your twin pulse cannons as you make your way through a dangerous, infested environment of giant ravaged ships, smashing asteroids to reach an ancient and legendary artifact.
