What's the difference between this and the $199.99 PS VR at Target, Best Buy, etc?

for those in the know--are the features added to the newer model worth the price bump? or does it make more sense to just buy the current/older headset?

Do you need additional equipment beyond the basic PS4 console to use this?

Do you want to view HDR video from your PS4 without switching cables or using a splitter? Then you want the new one. If you don't care, buy the original.

There's some audio cable streamlining with the new one, though overall it's minimal.

PS4 camera. Move controllers for optimal experience in some games.

The only real benefit to the new model is that it does HDR passthrough. The old model required you to either put a splitter in to send an HDR signal to your tv or to unplug the PSVR box and plug the HDMI straight into the PS4 for an HDR signal. A splitter costs a few bucks, I'd just save my money and get this one.

PSVR = $199
HDMI SPLITTER = $19
MOVE CONTROLLER =$79
CAMERA = $49

Total = $346

So how is this better than Skyrim Bundle?

HDMI splitter is around $5 from monoprice. I bought my camera for $20. I went to a pawn shop and got move controllers for $5 each. It took me zero effort to get a good deal on the camera and move controllers. If you don't feel like looking for deals and you're going to buy Skyrim anyway, go for it, especially if you have a 4K HDR TV.
