Anyone who has decided to get in on the first wave of Playstation VR should probably get their order in quickly. Both EB and JB are taking orders now. Does seem to be quite popular judging by talk on various internet forums. $550 (+ delivery if needed).

Also sounds like there will be package deals at some stage - which include the camera and move controllers.

If you were a bit dismayed when it was revealed that the PlayStation VR would not come with the required PlayStation Camera peripheral, may you dis no more. Tech Insider reports that there will be a bundle that comes with the basic PlayStation VR package, as well as a PlayStation Camera and one PlayStation Move controller.

A company rep made the statement during an interview with President of Sony's Worldwide Studios, Shuhei Yoshida. As for why this bundle isn't the de facto way to buy a PlayStation VR, Yoshida said that "plenty" of people already own a PS Camera. What exactly that means is unknown, as Yoshida did not divulge sales numbers or percentages.

Another point not specified by Yoshida or the Sony rep: the price of this special bundle. Purchased separately these items would add up to roughly $500 ($400 PlayStation VR unit, $60 PlayStation Camera, $30 PlayStation Move controller), but usually these sorts of all-in-one packages present some sort of savings to make them more appealing. Either way, at least it sounds like there will be a VR option for you, regardless of what you already own.

Yeah, saw EB pre-sold out last night so I jumped onto JB's site and preordered one.

Threw a pre-order down at JB Hi Fi, given you dont pay until it gets released I thought I'd secure one and decide later when we hear and see some more (guessing it will be a major point at E3)

I'm thinking bout it too but have never preordering before.
How much hassle is it to cancel if,  say,  a bundle with camera is announced and released?

If referring to JB, you just email them via the form on their site and they usually reply back the same day with a confirmation of cancellation.

So I preordered an October  unit from gamesmen.com.au which were linked from Sony's site along with eb and jb.

It's a little more expensive since I got express delivery, and they charge the full amount up front which is crap, but I kinda sold myself on the hype and really want one. Also, when I found out that it can be used for any game as a TV (non vr,  equivalent to 226" tv) it helped seal the deal.

I noticed that some of the PSVR games have prices up on the PSN Store:

RIGS = $84.95
Until Dawn: Rush of Blood = $24.95
Playstation VR Worlds = $54.95
Tumble VR = $14.95

Curious to see what they retail for in stores.

This.

So far a few games look interesting, Resident Evil 7, Farpoint and Batman Arkham VR..  But even if it's not going to pay off immediately, I'm a sucker for shiny new toys and can't resist.

I also preordered this, I have a JB preorder but don't trust them with it so I preordered at EB instead (EB recently opened up more slots for shipment 1 during E3, I got the last one)

I also preordered RIGS and VR Worlds.
