Sarah Tew/CNET

If you already own a PS4, this kit takes it to the next level with two great VR games — Creed: Rise to Glory and Superhot VR — as well as the two Move controllers for just $30 more than you'd normally pay for the base VR system alone.

This bundle comes first to GameStop this Sunday.

It's also available at Target and it's a doorbuster (limited quantities) but could also be available at the website once the sale starts on Thanksgiving day (Nov. 22) at 5p.m. ET.
