If you’re looking to purchase a PSVR headset, you are probably also looking for some games to play along with it. Since the release of the PlayStation VR in 2016, there have been many bundle deals available to purchase – some worth it, some not so much. Here is a list of some the best PSVR bundles available to users right now.
The Best Value – PlayStation VR FPS Deluxe Bundle
Although this is not our top choice bundle on the list, it is probably the best value of all the PlayStation VR bundles available at the moment. It is so because it includes 4 great games, including probably the best virtual reality game available right now – Skyrim VR.
This bundle includes a PlayStation VR headset, a PlayStation Camera, 2 PlayStation Move controllers and a PSV aim controller, Doom VFR, PSVR Bravo Team, PSVR Farpoint, and Skyrim VR.
The games in this bundle are high-quality virtual reality experiences, each offering a unique take on the first-person shooter genre. PSVR Farpoint takes you on an otherworldly space adventure to a hostile planet, PSVR Doom provides more of a frantic shooter experience with plentiful carnage and a fair few jump scares, PSVR Bravo Team is a more modern and politicized affair set in an Eastern European city.
On top of this you also have Skyrim VR, and for those familiar with the game already it needs no introduction. For those unfamiliar with it, you need to introduce yourself to it.
If you are not a fan of first-person shooter (FPS) games, this bundle effectively leaves you with only one game choice in the form of Skyrim VR, in which case you would be better off electing for the bundle listed below.
Our Top Choice – PlayStation VR Skyrim Bundle
In our opinion, one of the best PSVR bundles available right now is also the cheapest one. It is also the one with the least games included (just one, in fact), but it is the best PlayStation VR game available right now and will keep you going for a long time while you decide what other games you want to try in the virtual reality world.
The bundle includes the PlayStation VR headset, two PlayStation Move controllers, a PlayStation Camera, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR game
Although the Skyrim may not be the most graphically advanced game available for the PSVR, it is definitely the most immersive and true virtual reality experience available. It has the potential provide over one hundred hours of gaming and the gameplay never seems to get old – testimony to this is found in its still strong sales results, despite having originally been released in 2011.

With the bundle offering only 1 game, it is not the most diverse package available, and those looking to try different genres in virtual reality should look elsewhere on the list.
The Most Diverse – PlayStation VR Starter Bundle (10 Items)
This bundle has a little something for all gamers and is probably the most diverse PSVR bundle available right now for a reasonable price. Fans of horror games can be happy with the inclusion of Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, if action-adventure games are your thing then Batman Arkham Asylum is available to you, Driveclub is also there to satisfy fans of racing games.
PlayStation 4 console, PlayStation VR headset, HDMI cable, PlayStation Camera, 2 PlayStation Move controllers, Call of Duty: Black Ops III, PSVR Eagle: Flight, Batman Arkham VR, PSVR Battle Zone, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, PSVR Rigs: Mechanized Combat League, DriveClub VR, PSVR EVE: Valkyrie, Battlezone VR
When you consider that the PS4 and PlayStation VR bundle without games is only $30 cheaper than this one (at time of writing), it really is great value for money. The games in this bundle are all solid titles and provide a good introduction to both virtual reality gaming and standard console gaming. Additionally, this bundle comes with all the PSVR equipment necessary to make the most of virtual reality gaming.
The price may put some people off purchasing this bundle and, although the games are all good, some of the titles included are a little dated now.
All Out – Deluxe PS4 VR Star Wars Bundle (16 Items)
If you have both time and money in abundance, then you may want to go straight in for this Deluxe PS4 Star Wars Bundle. As with the starter bundle listed above in the list, this one is very diverse and has something for lovers of all gaming genres. This one, however, also includes a PS4 Pro, the upgraded and more powerful version of the original PS4, and 12 games in total.
1TB PS4 Pro, PlayStation VR headset, HDMI cable, PlayStation Camera, 2 PlayStation Move controllers, Star Wars Battlefront II, Batman Arkham VR, Doom VFR, EVE: Valkyrie VR, Until Dawn VR, Skyrim VR, Gran Turismo VR, PSVR Worlds, Resident Evil 7 VR, DriveClub VR, RIGS: Mechanized Combat League VR, Battle Zone VR, Eagle Flight VR.
This is certainly the most complete bundle in the list and has all the best titles currently available on the PSVR, in our opinion. The inclusion of Skyrim VR, Resident Evil 7 VR, and Doom VFR make the game choice in this bundle far superior to the starter bundle. This bundle also contains all the PSVR equipment to maximize the potential of the gameplay experience of the games listed.
Despite the value being very good considering what’s on offer, this bundle is simply too expensive. If you can afford it easily, then go for it, but we would recommend looking elsewhere at the cheaper bundles to get a feel for the PSVR before going all out with this one. Plus, by the time you have gotten through all the games listed in this bundle, it’s highly likely that better games will have been released in the meanwhile.
