The PlayStation VR Worlds Bundle gets a slight price cut, Nintendo showcasing upcoming indie titles on the Switch with a presentation this Wednesday, and Rune: Ragnarok reveal trailer.

Following suit?

Sony is making a few changes to the two PlayStation VR bundles that are currently being offered.  First, the core PlayStation VR Headset bundle stays at $399/499 CAD but includes a PlayStation Camera, something required to experience PS VR on the PS4.  This essentially gives you the camera for no extra charge, meaning you're just about good to go out of the box.

The second PlayStation VR bundle, the PS VR Worlds Bundle, will drop from $499 to $449.  You might remember this bundle as the one that included everything needed to fully experience PS VR, it included the camera, PS VR headset, and two move controllers.  Both of these bundles will be on store shelves starting on September 1st.

Don't forget about the indies!

Stay tuned to your computer, tablet, or phone on Wednesday at 1 pm ET/ 10 am PT.  That date and time is when Nintendo will be hosting another Nindies showcase for upcoming indie titles on the Nintendo Switch.  We might get release dates for Super Meat Boy and Stardew Valley, both confirmed for the console.

If you're going to PAX West, Nintendo has a little surprise for you.  Attending Nintendo's panel at the event will give you the chance to pick up a special  SNES Classic-themed Nintendo Power cover.  If you're not going to the event, at least you can download the pictures from the tweet below.

The gods must fall

Human Head has released a new teaser trailer for a brand new game in the Rune series.  Rune: Ragnarok is currently being developed as a sandbox, open-world RPG sprinkled with lots of Norse-inspired mythology.  No telling quite yet if this title will come to platforms other than PC.
