If you missed your chance on pre-ordering the much-awaited PlayStation VR, no need to panic! You get another chance tomorrow as pre-orders are back.

GameSpot reports that GameStop is making a number of devices available for pre-order this June 30 at 7 a.m. PT/ 10 a.m. ET. However, while this is another pre-order opportunity for those who weren’t able to do so before, it is potentially the last. The website relays Sony’s announcement that said stocks available for pre-order are limited.

This goes without saying that if you miss another chance of pre-ordering tomorrow, then all you can do is wait until the PlayStation VR launches in October 13.

Although waiting for October 13 to get your hands on the VR is not a major issue, it does have its own problems. As per Engadget, not pre-ordering the device poses the risk of running out of stocks come launch day. And if you are–as what the site says–an early adopter, not having the VR while everybody else already has it won’t be a pleasant scenario.

Last chance at pre-order

Check out this GameStop page now, as this is what you need to access when the last wave of pre-orders open. This page lists three options namely the Playstation VR itself, the Playstation VR Launch Bundle and the Playstation VR Charge and Display Station.

However, GameSpot notes that it is still unclear which among the products listed on the page will be available. If all three shows up, it’s a safe bet that the Playstation VR Launch Bundle could be the perfect choice to go with.

The PlayStation VR standalone headset is at $399.99 while the bundle sells for $499.99.

‘Thumper’ launches with PlayStation VR

On other related news, Marc Flury of Drool just announced on the PlayStation blog that rhythm violence game “Thumper” is releasing on the same day as the VR. Flury shares additional details of the launch:

“Thumper contains nine epic levels playable in both ultra-glossy 2D and fully immersive VR. Over the past few months, we’ve made many enhancements to take full advantage of PS VR.”

With this, it appears that gamers have more to look forward to when the PlayStation VR launches.
