Saw this offer up at my local Macquarie Today, store said it was all Big Ws. Had stock when I checked. Looks like the cheapest out there so far.

    Remember to use 5% off Wish Cards through CR if you're buying, makes it $341.

    Would this be considered a console? If not you could also combine with F&F Tomorrow to get it for a further 10% off that. Making it ~$306.

    Tempting as the ps4 been collecting lint since the nintendo switch came out. This might bring it back to life. How different is v2?

      There's not enough VR titles to bring your PS4 back to life. I hear the Skyrim implementation is kinda poor and the other games are all gimmicks or tech demos so I dunno.

  •  

    Ok v2 more like convenience upgrAde probably not worth full price?

    We got a price winner!

    First skyrim VR impression on whirlpool:

    Played about 30 mins of Skyrim over lunchtime…. not feeling good about this purchase at all. Looks very muddy and poor (playing on pro) but the biggest problem is the controls, virtually unplayable with Move controllers imho. I have teleportation turned off (obviously), however I can't find any setting for smooth movement, the side to side rotation/movement is stepped and horrible. I have played 100+ hours of skyrim and I remember how much horrible inventory/menu management goes on in the game and I cannot fathom doing that with the clunky move controllers. I will pay around more when I get home to see if I can find better settings but at this stage I will buy it on the switch as I think I would get more out of a portable version. Disappointed.

    There is only one game that is worth it for PS VR.

    Ace Combat 7

    Tempting but no thanks. Love my ps4 pro but it's just simply not powerful enough to drive vr. Great introduction though, I suppose.

  •  

    Bought, thanks OP.

    Missed out on the Gamesmen deal yesterday and was pretty bummed.
    Was considering the Target deal, but this one is even better by $10 even after my staff discount and flybys points.

    Marion, SA store only had one left after I got one. Sounds like someone else picked one up before me too.
    They didn't have the poster up yet, but they had it on a screen in the background about to print them out I think, told them I was after that deal.
    They were confused because the current deal is $499 with GT Sport or something and why would anybody get the more expensive deal haha.

    Great price to try my VR legs before the Pimax comes out next year.
    If I have a horrible experience with VR, no biggie, probably put it up on Gumtree and get most of my money back.

    To those saying Skyrim VR has bad Move controls: Just play it with a Dualshock. It has 3 modes, motion with locomotion, motion with teleporting, and headtracking with traditional dualshock controls. It'll still be immersing with head tracking even without all the motion control shenanigans.

    I went to my local Big W. They didn't know anything about it. I went to EB and they offered a price match. Yay carrots!

  •  

    Stock available at many stores?

    I have already sold my PS VR ….. I must resist….must wait for PS VR 2.0 ….don't want to change cables anymore

  •  

    Is this advertised? I just bought one from Harvey Norman and they are asking for links or catalogue to the deal if I want a price match.

  • +2 votes

    You'd think they'd learn from M$. XBox Kinnect was a great idea implemented and supported poorly. Now it's tarnished and probably won't be back for ages.
    VR in a console needs to be done right, otherwise it'll suffer the same fate.

    Too much greed from the console makers to rush a feature nowhere near ready to be sold yet.

    Consoles don't have the power to run VR properly yet. It takes a hefty bit of PC gear to do it now, so why would they even bother trying?
    Short term $$$ in their eyes instead of investing into it properly.

    A damn shame :(.

  •  

    Is it possible for click and collect at Big W? Worried that there'll be none left tomorrow morning at my local store

  •  

    Kinda regretting the $444 deal now :(

    • +1 vote

      Use it and enjoy it. $100 isn't worth losing sleep over or feeling bad in the long run.

    •  

      Think about the people who bought it at launch and you won't feel so bad.
      What if at Xmas it is $300?
      What if…

  •  

    Wish I can swap skyrim for GTS though.

  •  

    Not bad. I got the special from the gamesmen. Waiting on it to arrive, but remembered the real reason I wanted vr.

    REZ!!

    Yes or no, can I use VR on every game and use just a normal controller, or is it only for games with an update? Like, can I use PSVR as just a normal screen, and plug the HDMI into it or something, or what?

    Because if it only applies to "VR ready" games, then this can (profanity) off.

    •  

      It's only for VR compatible or VR purpose built games.

    •  

      You can use the VR in cinema mode which acts just like a normal screen, so yes

      • +1 vote

        One of you is right, but I'm not sure which, so now I'm too scared to buy. Back to the PS2 I guess.

        • +1 vote

          I might have read your question wrongly, I thought you meant movies and games will automatically become VR. As ado-ve said there is cinema mode where you can see a flat projected version of your PS4 screen, however the quality isn't the best. In fact it also works with your PC or Xbox One in the same way.

        •  

          @raptormesh: Awesome, that's honestly all I want out of it. I could give a toss less about turning my head to move the camera or whatever, I just wanna play my game in a dope ass helmet.

          Might have to grab one of these suckers sometime soon while the deals are out, cheers, dudes.

    Just bought it online for $333 shipped with "FF10" code!

    Thanks!

  •  

    (profanity) it, I jumped in with the FF10 code.

    My wallet is gonna (profanity) kill me in the morning. I gotta stop buying shit online late at night, the other day I bid on an old iMac and I'm proper afraid that no one's gonna outbid me now.

    •  

      Can't say no to $333.

      If you really don't want that iMac you can retract your bid under "certain circumstances".

      •  

        Nah, it was just 25 bucks for an old 2005 model with local pickup for free. I was nostalgic for the old computers in my school and when I saw the price I couldn't say no.

        333 is dope though. Too bad a fair few games need the Move controllers, too bad also that I will never buy that shit and I'll get by fine without them. I'm coming at you, Until Dawn & DriveClub VR.

    Hi guys

    The Big W friends and family code is now live. Just picked this bundle up for $333 includes delivery. As advised put in "FF10" code when checking out.

  •  

    https://www.bigw.com.au/product/sony-playstation-move-motion...

    And the Vr bundle then FF10

    almost $50 off the total price

  •  

    Guys! Don't forget to use Wish Cards to take extra 5% off.

    I picked it up in store yesterday, so without the discount code. Everything is still sealed, so I could return it, rebuy online and save $26 (there is no in store pick up for me, only postage +$10) but I'd have to wait for it to get here and risk damage in transit.

  •  

    Just got one at Halley cove big w 6 left. Used 10% voucher u only get $9.86 off the price better then nothing

    •  

      Was that 10% of the RRP only (ie you could not combine the discount with the $359 price)?

      • +1 vote

        He scanned it 5 times it wouldn’t work then it all of a sudden took $9.36 off as family friends discount which is prabably 5% off the games and camera price

      •  

        I worked it out they give u 10% of the promo price of the games and camera in the bundle $93.37 for games and camera

  •  

    Is it worth getting? apparently people have been having issues with hdmi drop outs? do you know if that issue still exists ?
    Does it work ok with the PS4 pro ?

  •  

    The code works online down to $322.10 + 9.99 delivery. So i go into Big W here in Canberra (Tuggeranong) after having to show them the deal on their website they rack it up for me only to find The coupon only takes $9 off. I say 'ahh 10% of $359 is not $9'

    After them trying to tell me its because its a console.. Umm no its not its an accessory to a console. And telling them it takes the 10% off the bundle on their online store they still couldnt get it to work.

    Was there for 30mins with different people, managers etc before i said forget it. Had a 2yo and a 4yo who was very restless waiting and was frustrating that it works online but different instore. get your $hit together BIG W!!

  •  

    Same experience as others in store; after them first flatly refusing to consider the FF discount as “it’s a game console” - they reluctantly scanned it giving me ~$9 extra off. Lost the will to argue!

    Oh well, still got Skyrim (Switch) with the 10% off and I’ll get the move controllers later, once the staff rotate 😁

    •  

      Yup, was a waste of time and considering they should know what a game console is its a stupid argument. The PS4 is clearly the console with the VR being an accessory. Should ask them where they load the games on the VR then :)

      I need it in store as i have a $100 voucher but i know we will see more and cheaper deals the closer to the release of the next version

    •  

      Where's a cheap place to get the controllers. They seem so overpriced.

  • +1 vote

    Paid $316 for it delivered online using the Wish Card. Thanks for the tip doweyy!

  •  

    Sold out online

  •  

    Any other deals seeing this is now sold out, I’m spewing I only just came across this

  •  

    I think target and jb are offering a similar deal for $399.

      Lol, I just remembered I was just as impatient with my Xbox One S order from Big W back in March. I had enquired about the shipping time and got this response:

      "Thank you for your enquiry.
      Our normal warehouse processing time is 3 working days.
      You will receive an updated email confirmation with an Australia Post tracking link as soon as your order has been dispatched."

      So I guess it should ship today or tomorrow.

  • +1 vote

    Just received shipping confirmation today…order placed 18/11

  •  

    Anyone else still waiting for shipping confirmation? My Order Status says: Awaiting Processing. While Item Details under the order says: Ready for Shipping. A full week to process an order for shipment isn't going to cut it when Amazon launches with a focus on delivering the product within 2 days.

    •  

      Finally received shipping notification this morning. Hope they are on the way to everyone else too.
