PlayStation VR 2 may be on the way in 2023, but that doesn’t mean you should forget about Sony’s first foray into console-based VR gaming.
One of the best VR headsets available, the PlayStation VR is still home to plenty of experiences you won’t find anywhere else. It’s also more affordable than it has ever been, especially with this deal.
Best Buy has dropped the price of the PlayStation VR headset to $199.99, and it also includes the excellent Iron Man VR. The game itself has also been discounted by $25. While Best Buy’s site shows the bundle as being discounted by $15, it’s worth remembering that the PSVR starter kit, which didn’t include Move Controllers or a game, retailed for around $350 not long ago.
Inside the PlayStation VR Iron Man bundle you’ll find the PlayStation VR headset, as well as two PlayStation Move controllers and the PlayStation Camera, which is used for head-tracking.
You’ll also find Iron Man VR, which has a very respectable Metacritic score of 73, as well as a PlayStation VR demo collection that includes trial versions of PSVR megahits like the time-slowing shooter Superhot VR, adorable platformer Astrobot Rescue Mission, and rhythm action game Thumper VR. That means the only thing missing is the console itself!
There are plenty more VR space games available, too. Whether it’s exploring the cosmos in No Man’s Sky, battling the Empire in Star Wars: Squadrons, or captaining a Starfleet vessel in Star Trek: Bridge Crew, games can be purchased on disc or via the PlayStation Store.

PlayStation VR is unique among VR headsets in that it connects to your PlayStation 4 console as opposed to a beefy Windows PC. You can connect it to a PlayStation 5, too, but you’ll need to request a free adapter from Sony – something to consider if you’re planning on unboxing it over the holidays.
