If you can make a $300+ purchasing decision within a day - then this may just be the PlayStation VR (or PS4 Pro) deal you've been looking for. Since Friday last week, eBay has been running a 10% off coupon code on select hardware from select retailers on their giant outlet platform. We've spotted a few interesting items including a PS4 Pro discounted down to $360 thanks to the aforementioned coupon - but just this week, Newegg has introduced the PlayStation VR into the mix of things.
We're counting two PlayStation VR deals as of writing, with a PS VR Core Headset on tap for $360, and a PlayStation VR Worlds Bundle for $450. The eBay 10% coupon will knock off $40 and $50, respectively, on both of these rarely discounted virtual reality headset from Sony.

- PlayStation 4 Pro 1TB Console - $359.99 (list $400)
Accompanying the two PS VR deals is Sony's higher performance PS4 Pro, which unlike the PS VR was never an "in-demand" unit given its wide availability since launch last year. Comparatively, supplies of PSVR was always questionable after its launch last year - with scalping prices going as high as $1,000.
So with that mindset, looking at its current discounted price shows you that being an early adopter can be quite an expensive proposition indeed.
All three PS4 related deals above will expire tonight at 11:59 PM Pacific Time. You'll need to use PayPal to check out for the coupon code to work - and while we don't expect the deal to be extended, occasionally "replacement" promotions do show up when other retailers see the action and want to join in on the fray. For example, just last week Walmart owned Jet.com has the PS4 Pro on sale for a similar price. So it's not a far stretch to imagine a similar discount will occur for the PlayStation VR in the near future.
With Sony releasing what appears to be a strong Q1, it'll be interesting to see if they make a more aggressive price push on their now ubiquitous PlayStation 4 console as we near the holiday season.
