Title says it all...ships 12/31. Skyrim bundle was also at 279 but sold out. Black Friday was not at all a good time to get PSVR.

Skyrim was $335 on Dell's page for Black Friday.

Is the doom bundle the v1 or v2 version of vr?

What a bunch of fucking bullshit. They should offer price adjustments for those who purchased it a couple weeks ago.

Maybe if enough people cause a fuss?

 

I've been on "hold" with Dell chat for over 2 hours due to "high volume." They damn well better.

I wonder if the skyrim bundle was an error. It comes with 2 move controllers which the doom bundle doesn't. Odd that they would be on sale for the same price.

It probably is, but what they don't know won't hurt them. ;) They're both listed for regular price of $399 with $120 discount...

 

Funny enough, the Gran Turismo VR bundle is going for $349 ($399 with $50 discount). That one is the worst deal of all.

I can't believe I wasted 3 hours for that.

Hey, so just wanted to confirm that if you bought the Skyrim VR bundle earlier, you can call in and get the price adjusted down to $279, which I think is the lowest it's gone for. Pretty sweet; I'm glad I took a chance on that (even though it hasn't shipped out yet).

 

It almost makes up for the fact that I'm going to die alone.

Guys maybe instead of calling Dell just have your credit card do a purchase price adjustment. My Citi and discover do this. Maybe Amex as well.

Sure seems like the Skyrim thing is a mistake (I clicked through to the product page, it is saying $399).

 

I'm also going to say that I don't understand the idea that retailers "owe" a price adjustment when a price drops.  Most do just to keep customer bitching down, but if you agreed to buy it for a given price, then the transaction is complete, right?   If the retailer sends you a partial refund, then it should be recognized that this is a generous thing on their part, not something they "owe" you necessarily from a moral or ethical view.

A lot of companies have fine print that even says they have no obligation to honor a price mistake. Many times, they will just cancel your order. As said before, if you complain, they will sometimes honor your request but that is to keep you from bad mouthing them.

I agree, while it would have been nice to be one of the lucky few to squeeze thru and get the deal. I feel like I got good value at the $335 Black Friday price... especially when you filter for completed auctions on eBay, and ppl have successfully sold/purchased this bundle for nearly $600.

I know this is CAG so I guess some ppl just like to live up to that name, with extra emphasis on the "cheap ass" lol

No, don't waste your time with online chat, they can't do anything. I called the number this morning and I had no problem (I thought I would have to fight it).

 

In response to the critics, I feel like it's bad business to advertise your "lowest" price one week and then discount it even further the next (whether it's in error or not). Anyway, it's their own 30-day policy I'm taking advantage of, and it should be standard policy if it's within the return date on the receipt. It saves me the trouble of having to return it and repurchase it for the discounted price (which I was already considering doing in response to the Target sale). I don't usually end up on the "winning" end of a good deal, and this was my biggest purchase all year, so allow me this brief respite.

Well since you tried it and technically it's in their policy.. I decided to give it a whirl. They weren't willing to honor it.

So consider yourself lucky.

If it makes you feel better I paid the full $350. No regrets. I don’t over think 50-60 bucks. Honestly next yr I could see $150 and $250 bundles. Sony is trying to dominate VR and no one can compete on price.

Do you think any titles /bundles are worth it now? Because I bought it at launch and I saw the potential but I also saw the potential in Sony 3DTV games.....with move as well lol

But doom looks like the best affordable bundle but do you think the roster is worth it now, and if either yes or no, do you think we’ll see all games with VR capability by next year or will they be this years clearance like the ps 3DTV bundles??

Is PS VR a constant , and or inevitable add on to embrace ? Just wanna know weather to get it now or wait

(Or get a switch and really wait till more bundles)

Long story short , I jumped on the 3D tv bandwagon too. And imo the psvr is not at all worth it...yet. The catalog is very limited and you can tell graphically it’s a first gen device. The next gen vr sets will most def be worth it if content exists. I’d personally get the switch for now. I’m also an adult who lives life like a spoiled kid, so buying a psvr was just another toy for me.

Honestly, vr has a few hours of wow factor. I think it ruines some gaming experience but certainly enhances others. Basically it’s a mixed bag atm.

I'm sorry to hear that. That sucks! I would've fought it.

 

Just look, search for "Playstation VR" on Dell.com: http://pilot.search..../playstation vr

 

It still comes up as $279.99 on the search listings. If it's an error, they haven't fixed it.

 

VR is certainly a luxury for me and at that price ($55 off what I paid), I don't feel so guilty for splurging on myself. Especially in these primitive times when VR is still in its awkward, developing stages and there are only a few worthwhile games. (That's assuming they don't run like shit on a regular PS4 Slim. :???:)

It depends, I got the $199 bundle because I have Re7 (which it seems to be the best way for VR) and I like the game a lot.

You also can try for movies, and even Porn :p
Sony seems to start to show more interest in doing VR games in the next days. It seems to me that Sony is waiting to see the reactions of the customers with this sale.

They announced a few Vr games compatible like The last Guardian and other VR only games.
The selection is quite good but not that big.
In the meantime If money is an issue you better get a switch.

I think otherwise. Switch is just another Nintendo cycle (and a quick act to replace their failed Wii U) the only selling point is their 1st party exclusive games like Mario and Zelda. A lot of games were remakes or ports, with downgraded graphics, from other consoles.  It's still the same gaming experience on a "new" form factor.  However, to me the form factor is not innovative. If I want portability, I have many other choices like phones, tablet (Switch uses Tegra X1, a tablet processor) or even gaming laptop which can now even bring a MR headset to have VR on the go

 

VR is different, it's a new gaming experience. You can certainly wait for next VR gen, just like some people can say I don't want PS4 now, I think PS5 should be around the corner and I'd rather wait. That's your choice.

There are many VR games out there, just might not have many big franchise names. VR will also be a minor and more like an enhanced gaming experience because it's limited to first person view only and not for everyone physically.

Hahaha sure. You have to download files and upload to an sd then DL a vr movie player on psn to watch. I don’t recommend dling porn illegally. If they get your IP, they’ll publicly shame you in a local newspaper and then sue you. It happened to my old boss...twice.

So Dell chat was worthless, they would not price match the Skyrim bundle price, claiming they were already aware and that this was a "time bound offer."  I asked "what does that even mean?"  Anyway I knew he was full of it and asked for a superviser.. he said "You can call us on 800-624-9897, but they will inform you the same."

 

So I called the number.. got probably one of the best Dell reps I have ever talked to, $55 refund is on its way.  So thanks OP for the heads up on the price drop on the Skyrim bundle.

 

My total for the bundle is:

 

$334.99

$26.46 : Tax

-----------
$361.45 : Original Total
 
-$55.00 : Price match
-$50.25 : TopCashBack (might get adjusted due to the price match)
-----------

$256.20 : Grand Total (what a steal)

 

By the way it now shows the $279.99 on the product page and not just the search page of the Skyrim bundle, so that will really help those trying to price match.

Buy a switch...it made me a believer. I only buy Nintendo consoles for first party games. I personally think the switch is a very fresh concept. Pretty much since the GameCube, 3rd party titles have always been better on other consoles.
