First Midnight VR Headset Launch by PlayStation VR


As mentioned in an earlier post, PlayStation VR is all set to release its headset this October 13th. To make the launch more interesting, PlayStation VR  will be launched at midnight.  This will be the first ever Midnight Launch for any VR system. You will be able to a part of the midnight launch only if you have pre-ordered it on BestBuy.  If you haven’t pre-ordered Sony’s VR headset yet, all the launch units are already sold out in the US. Meanwhile, 350 BestBuy stores across the US will be opening at midnight when the launch begins. Both Oculus Rift and HTC Vive were launched online and none of them had a midnight release. Hence, this makes PlayStation VR all the more interesting.
