Sony’s virtual reality headset is going to be released next month and retailer Best Buy wants to cash in on the hype. It has confirmed some good news today for people who have been waiting to get their hands on the PlayStation VR. The retailer is going to open 350 of its stores across the country at midnight to enable customers to purchase the PlayStation VR. Stores will open at 12:01 am so that customers can purchase and experience the new headset from Sony.
Best Buy was one of the first retailers of offer demos of the PlayStation VR earlier this year in June. Demos were hosted in over 200 of its stores across the country so it’s unsurprising that it’s going to open hundreds of stores early to sell as many units of the PlayStation VR as it possibly can.
The full list of stores that will be hosting midnight openings for the PlayStation VR can be found on Best Buy’s website. Customers are encouraged to find their local store and plan accordingly.
Those who are unable to make it that late at night can rest assured as limited quantities of the PlayStation VR will also be available at each Best Buy store nationwide the following day. Customers will also be able to purchase one via the retailer’s website.
PlayStation VR is going to be released on October 13th.
