I'd say if you want a Playstation VR, jump on this because they'll go quickly. These are the $499.99 Launch Bundle & $399.99 Core versions.

From Playstation.blog
UPDATE (June 29, 2016): As promised, we’re opening our summer wave of PS VR pre-orders starting Thursday, June 30 at 7:00 AM Pacific on GameStop.com. Supplies are limited, and this is your final chance to pre-order. If you miss out, we will have product available in retail stores nationwide at launch.

If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Both Best Buy and Amazon won't let you preorder the PS VR on their site anymore (just sign up when they are available to preorder).

They might open preorders before the October launch, but right now Gamestop's your best bet if you want to secure one.

FYI- I preordered on Amazon back in March, and it's been unavailable for a while now.

Dang I didn''t realize these were that hot, I got my pre-order in easily a while back at BBY, might want to switch it to GS though, since I have so much credit to burn

keep in mind this is phase 2 preorder. No telling if availability will be day of launch. Sony said with the original pre-orders that they will try to have another phase or two but the fulfilment would be after Phase 1 so just think about that, before cancelling the pre-order that would put you in the first group

I have a i7 8gig ram pushing a 2gb amd hd 7870 and a 512 ssd. I found that the ps4 has a crippled 7870 in it. so to all considering buying the vr for their ps4 I laugh at u. my card is outdated I plan to upgrade my card to a rx480. another 16 gigs of ram will put me at 24 gigs. the 7870 is doing a good job at playing most everything I throw at it. but I get lag during video playback in games alot. I'm trying to play vermintide and it's frustrating I get random game freezes and my team isn't so after a few seconds of screen freeze I'm wondering where everybody went. I tried running 7 days to die and was stunned how bad it was. I get a few seconds of movement 3-5secs and it freezes for a minute. miscreated same deal. hell I get video lag during 2010 ghostbusters. I have my card set to preformance and power settings to preformance, and still I get lag. the ps vr is gonna be like linchdom battlemage. unplayable on the ps4. the vr is gonna be like the rock band drum set nobody wants. aka paperweight. it's been out on the pc for some time. and it's not overly impressive I'm not gonna bite. I don't want anything strapped to my face for 1. lol I tried holding my phone inches from my face and I'm like no this is not for me. you're gonna go blind. lol I swear you're all gonna go blind. the Japos are gonna laugh at u. this is the worst idea ever. what ever happened to 3d tvs? 3d gaming was a thing for a while wasn't it? kill zone 3 was a big seller right? riiiiiight. 3d tvs were a big thing until people were like I don't wanna wear these stupid glasses. so the people buying vr probably own 3d tvs although they don't ever use 3d. but look at the 3 year old specs on the ps4 before investing more money into another playstation cash grab (pstv, ps vita) I own 2 vitas and 40+ vita games because I like the idea of hacking it one day. I unlocked my pstv already but that hasn't been plugged in since. the ps4 is already gonna be replaced with a temp system neo that's gonna be phased out by 2020. I don't recommend buying that unless they drop a gtx 1080 in it. my guess is no I'm not against consoles I'm thinking the $400 2tb one s is not a bad deal. but I don't need it. I wanted ryse dead rising 3 and tomb raider. I got that on my pc now. if the ps neo isn't upgradeable I'm not in. the sega made upgrades to their consoles. 32x n64 had a upgrade chip. but now it's just too hard. my rig is upgradeable I can use the 360 remote for games. it's almost the same I can just make everybody on skyrim get naked now.

One that's a little racist and two have you even tried PSVR??? Its actually really fun and ran perfectly fine on the original ps4. I tried it at best buy and I know its not for everyone but no body who ordered it will regret it.

Congrats who got in. Looks like no more preorders anywhere.

[UPDATE] GameStop sold through its entire allocation of PlayStation VR preorder units "within minutes" of becoming available at 7 AM PT, a representative told GameSpot. Sony has said there will be no more units available for preorder anywhere; you can buy one when they go on sale in October.
