The PlayStation VR is set for launch next month, and it appears that the headset is not just eagerly awaited by gamer, but third-party accessory makers are also jumping into the action.
And are readying their wares for PS VR.
A whole range of accessories have been stocked at major retailers like Amazon, Best Buy and GameStop, all in anticipation for the virtual reality headset that itself has been out of stock for months now — at least in the US.
GameStop, for example, reported that its preorders sold out in just five minutes!
With that in mind, there is bound to be a large consumer base for aftermarket accessories, and companies are now gearing up for this possibility by creating and bringing to market officially licensed accessories for the PS VR.
Out of these, Amazon and GameStop seem to have stock of all these officially licensed peripherals, which for now are two display stand with built-in controller charging cradles and two rather robust carrying cases.
And since released dates of the PlayStation VR are different across retailers, some may release these accessories earlier than others.
Amazon, meanwhile, plans to release all accessories preorders in late October.
But considering that there are only a few precious accessories out for the HTC Vive, and hardy any for the Oculus Rift, this is a meaningful first step to ensure PS VR buyers are covered when it comes to additional peripherals for their shiny new virtual reality headset.
