(Editors Opinion: These are some great deals and bundles I’ve particularly got my eye on the PSVR GT Bundle that’s a steal for $199.99 even though I’m not a huge GT Sport fan personally by any stretch who can beat so such a great give away. At any rate these deals are sure to maintain some dominance during the holidays. My only gripe is that I would’ve like to have seen a permanent price drop for the PSVR and the PS4 Pro Collectively. However there still may be time as we enter 2018. However as of now as far as we know these are the best deals around for entering the PlayStation family.)

(Editors Opinion: Not really a fan of the Skyrim franchise however Doom on the Standard PS4 alone is pretty darn stellar and this news reminds me that I need to finish my platinum play-through of the game as it’s one of my enjoyable titles on my gaming bucket list. But besides that. I am also looking forward to trying this out on PSVR as my Playstation VR experience has been a bit limited to only a few plays as I have yet to purchase one myself. But I surely plan on doing so for a myriad of reasons. However I encourage many to give PSVR VR a try and Doom is an excellent introductory to the experience.)
