Will you buy it when it comes out, or will you wait until the price drops?

You will also need the Playstation Camera and the Playstation Move to use it to its full potential.

It's still only something for early adopters right now. Unless, No Man's Sky really does revolutionize video games as we know them it's still going to take time for VR to get off the ground.

The camera is $60. You need two Move controllers which are up to $50 for one. Assuming you luck out and get a sale like Amazon so it's nearly half price, that's still over $100 extra.

It's technically a peripheral so costing more than the PS4 just doesn't sit right. $299 would go over better, but at least it is cheaper than the competition.

^^It's probably PS4 only, because good luck getting these VR games to run at 60 fps on PS3.

Prices should drop like a rock at the end of the year, so not yet.

This is probably the cheapest we'll see the PS3, which is actually fairly decent even refurbished since it still has blu-ray and all that[DOUBLEPOST=1458323476,1458323376][/DOUBLEPOST]http://www.gamestop.com/ps3/consoles/pl ... dle/114463

I guess if you want new and a lot more space, $50 more ain't that bad extra

^Can't remember if it takes external HDDs, but you can certainly do a lot better than an extra 500GB for that price if it does.

If that bundle came with a better game then it would look more appealing.
