Select Best Buy Stores Will Open Early to Sell PlayStation VR

On October 13, 2016, 350 Best Buy stores will open at 12:01 a.m. EST to sell PlayStation VR. Note that this means they will all open at this time, so CST stores will open on October 12, 2016 at 11:01 p.m., MST stores at 10:01 p.m., and PST stores at 9:01 p.m. The West Coast definitely wins in this lottery. If you need to check if a Best Buy store participating in this event is near you, the retailer has a website that lists all participating stores by state.

If making a midnight or late night launch isn’t possible, PlayStation VR will be available in “limited quantities” in all Best Buy stores on the official launch day. You can also try your luck ordering online on launch day with Best Buy.

It’s crazy to think that PlayStation VR will be a reality as of October 13, 2016. The following games will be available at launch for PlayStation VR on that day as well at Best Buy stores:

  • Batman: Arkham VR
  • PlayStation VR Worlds
  • RIGS Mechanized Combat League
  • Loading Human: Chapter One
