Just starting a thread for deals for the Playstation VR. 

 

I picked up the Core bundle off Amazon and I'm looking for a cheap camera and move controllers.

 

I found that best buy has some cheap playstation 4 cameras on sale for 39.99 with free shipping.

If you all know any good deals for move controllers or launch games, let me know.

Be careful with Move controllers. I hear if they have been on the store shelf or someone's collection too long the batteries just won't last long (and you can't replace them).

So where do you all recommend picking up a move controller?  It doesn't seem like all games require the Move controller, so maybe I can just stick with a ps4 controller until a good deal appears.

Try buying the controllers at Gamestop first, charge them and see if they work, if not just return them.

 

The batteries are like car batteries, if you don't use them they simply don't work anymore.

I'm not sure if they are already selling them in stores but the PSVR bundle will come with the second version of the camera, not the long rectangular one. If you can snag a bundle, I think it's worth the value if you don't have any of the pieces.

The reason I picked up a core bundle was because I had 1 move controller already.  I'm too cheap to pick up bundle. 

 

 

I feel like I can find a camera and controller for under 100 dollars.  I already found the camera at best buy on sale for 40 bucks new.  So all I need now is that move controller.

 

The only game I really want to play is

Hopefully we can get together a list of games that are actually decent games to play and not gimmicky demos etc. I assume the titles priced at $20 are bullshit

A teardown guide on ifixit shows the battery is replaceable on the PS Move controller.

Apparently there is a reset button on the controller as well.
https://www.ifixit.c... has no charge.

Interesting, so maybe the cheapest thing I can do is buy used controller ... Thanks for the ifixit site.

 

  I'm seeing used controllers for 15 bucks and I can just replace the battery on my own.

They released a NEW camera for VR

 

amazon/PlayStation-4-Camera/dp/          B01LW1OM63

 

Which I thought the launch bundle was going to be updated with it.

 

"Well if it wasn't obvious already or some people are still wondering, yes it will include the new design camera."

Keep in mind the $500 PSVR bundle comes with "PlayStation VR Worlds" that retails separately for $40.  The Core package only comes with a demo disc.

I don't get why everyone says the move controller batteries die at a rediculous rate? They have lithium ion batteries, the same as your phone, and dual shock 4. If you left a dualshock sit for 6 months, I doubt people would say it's useless. Seems like a bandwagon situation. Used controllers are to be worried about, but new move controllers? They've sat in a warehouse as long as most items.

I like how the only TV ads for this thing so far are from the Taco Bell contest.

Anyone know of any good deals on Move Controllers? I've decided that I'll need to pick up a couple of them now. Still need to pre-order a couple of games with my VR and it's looking like RIGS and PS VR Worlds so far and I think I am going to bite on that physical copy of Rez Infinite.

I'm just looking at a local gamestop. That way I can return it if it sucks.  Are move controllers sold in BM stores anymore?

Most stores no longer carry the PS3 branded Move Controllers, but they are being repackaged to be sold alongside the PSVR.
