It does not cost an arm and leg to buy a PSVR in Nigeria. There are three main categories of people/places you can buy the PSVR (and other gaming product for that matter) from. We have set them out below:
- Retailers: These are stores, such as VG Stores, that sell video games, consoles and accessories. There are as many different prices as there are retailers, but the best price across this group presently is #190,000.
- Marketplace Sites: These are websites such as Jumia/Konga. They do not stock the consoles but rely on merchants (usually the retailers above) to sell on their platforms. Due to the cost of selling on the platforms what you would find is that prices on marketplace sites would be higher than direct offers from retailers. As at the date of publication, the best PlayStation VR price in Nigeria we found on one of these sites is 200,000NGN. We recommend you go for retailers to beat down the prices.
