One of the biggest criticisms pointed at PlayStation VR is that it lacks big games, and while there’s a discussion to be had about whether lengthy releases are the right fit for virtual reality, titles don’t come much bigger than The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR. Thus, Sony has announced a new bundle for North America, which comes with a headset, a PlayStation Camera, a couple of PlayStation Move controllers, and a copy of the game for $449.99. You also get a new demo disc, too, which includes 13 virtual reality experiences.
For those who don’t know, Skyrim VR is the full game (including all of its DLC packs) repurposed for PlayStation VR. We very recently got hands on time with the final build of this edition, and despite our previous impressions being quite negative, we can confirm that it’s really come together in recent months. We’ll have a full preview going live soon, so keep your eyes open for that.
Also, just to add, the PlayStation VR headset that you’ll get in this bundle is the updated version, with the new cabling setup and more convenient HDR-enabled Processor Unit. It’s all due out on 17th November, and you can check out a commercial embedded above.
To be honest that's not actually a bad deal, although it's kind of insane that Bethesda have found a million ways to repackage Skyrim at full price
Skyrim is by far my most loved game of all time. Already own it on 3 different formats soon it will be 5. Not bothered about this package though but it seems like a decent deal. I wonder if Sony will ever bring out a VR headset which is themed in some way they do it with consoles and controllers.
Skyrim is one of those games that I haven’t spent much time with. I loved Oblivion (until I accidentally picked up some bread and lost my Relics of the Crusader armor due to stealing...). I picked it up for the PS3, but never opened the package. Maybe I’ll give it a go here.
How is movement handled?
@lacerz It's completely customisable.
I recently platinumed skyrim on PS4 and it's a fun game but I think it was way overhyped to me by other people.
Can't see this working for VR though I think it's too long of a game for it.
OK, so the Skyrim bundle has the new PSVR hardware and the Grand Turismo bundle has the old PSVR hardware?
@GamerDad66 I'm not actually sure. They specifically mention the new PSVR model in the PS Blog post for Skyrim, but don't in the Gran Turismo post. I think it's safe to assume they're probably both the new model, but you might need to check the packaging to be certain.
@get2sammyb oh!? So its not just silly VR teleporting movement? Theve added regular plain ol' walkin around movement???!!! Thats great!!! That was crucial in order for me to get it! Theres no way im play skyrim and teleporting all over through out the whole game, no thanks.
@Gmork___ I think for regular movement you have to use the DualShock instead of the move controllers. So a little less immersion and a little more immersion at the same time.
@Gmork___ Yeh, they've put the teleporting movement in doom vr which looks awful! Glad they haven't put it in skyrim vr...
Wish Bethesda would sort a new elder scrolls out! Nxt thing will be skyrim for your smart phone... Or microwave!!
This is the perfect bundle I would buy in a heartbeat... if it came to Europe. Forget about the GT one.
@ztpayne7 @Gmork___ You don't have to teleport with Moves either if you don't want to. It's completely customisable.
@MadAussieBloke @get2sammyb awesome! I stand corrected.
