No plans for a pre-order yet, says Sony.
While most of the world found out when it would be able to start pre-ordering the Sony PlayStation Virtual Reality device, it turns out India is going to have to wait a bit longer than most. Last week, Sony announced that the PlayStation VR is going to be available all over the world starting in October and it will retail at $399. There is also going to be a bundle which will carry a price tag of $499.
This bundle is actually a pretty decent deal, considering it comes with the headset and the PlayStation Move, camera as well as a free game. With that price tag and the games that will launch for the PlayStation VR bundle it’s not a real surprise that people all over the world are lining up for pre-orders already. The pre-orders in places like United Kingdom have already begun but according to a report by Gadgets 360, there are no plans to start bookings anytime soon in India.
“Currently we do not have plans of conducting pre-orders till confirmed date of VR India launch is available,” a spokesperson for Sony India explained to Gadgets 360 over email. In the past, the PS4 and Xbox One both launched in India several months after they were already available in other parts of the world. So this is not to say that the device won’t ever launch in India. Hopefully, gamers will be able to get their hands on the headset sometime next year.
