Starting today at approximately at 10 AM EST, right around the time this article is published, major retailers across Canada will begin accepting preorders for the PlayStation VR launch bundle.

The $700 bundle includes everything PlayStation 4 owners will need to start playing virtual reality games on their console — including the PlayStation VR headset itself, a PlayStation Camera, a pair of Move controllers and PlayStation VR Worlds, a disc that includes five VR games from Sony’s London Studio.

So far Best BuyEB Games and Walmart have launched dedicated web pages where consumers can preorder the bundle. We’ll update this article if any other retailers launch their preorder page for the PlayStation VR headset. Preorders for the $549 PlayStation VR bundle, which only includes the headset, necessary cables and microprocessor unit, will launch later in the year.

Update: Some retailers like Amazon have already sold out of stock. If you missed your chance to pre-order the bundle, fret not; Sony Canada said there will be a second wave of preorders sometime in the Summer.

Update #2: Amazon Canada has stated more inventory will arrive next week, noting on its site “PlayStation VR – Available for Pre-order on Tuesday March 29 at 7:00 AM PST (10:00 AM EST).”

    Amazon sold out under 10 minutes.

    The core set will be available for pre-order Tuesday next week at the same time by the way.

    And it’s 550, not 450.

      Still available on Bestbuy

      When it hit the product page there were “6” remaining, about 10 seconds to hit checkout, and i was given an error page, guess that stock ticker was a wee bit slow as they are all gone as of 8am PST.

      Yeah, I should have specified other places still listed it as available at that moment.

      I could have grabbed one of these but I rather wait for the core pre-order next week. No way I’m paying almost 200 extra for things I already have and a game collection that’ll lose its appeal after 2-3 times playing it.

      Thanks, fixed!

      I wish/hope it’s 450 in the end. That dollar been slowly crawling up. But I’m not holding my breath.

    Why wait until the pre-order is live to post the article?
    Don’t you think readers would’ve liked a heads up a few hours early?
    Pretty boneheaded.

    I’m sticking with and having fun with the Gear VR for now as my PS3 won’t work with this anyhow. I’m hoping that rumours of a upcoming 4.5 version PS4 are true, I’ll jump on a bundle deal then as it will have the much improved 4K video capabilities then which should compliment VR very well.
