The final round of PlayStation VR headset pre-orders went live on Thursday, but sold out in minutes, a Gamestop representative told IGN.

According to Sony, there won’t be any more pre-orders. The headset will be officially released on October 13.

The headset itself is priced at $400, significantly less than the $600 Oculus Rift and the $800 HTC Vive, and works with people’s current PlayStation 4 consoles.
