Valorant Points (VP) are the all-important currency in Valorant, but how much is VP in real-world money? This VP to real-money conversion article will answer all of your questions.

Buying cosmetics in Valorant can sometimes be like taking your senior math exams all over again. Jumping over those numerical hurdles can really be a challenge, but it’s no secret that the Future Earth store can be pretty costly.

With new skin bundles dropping pretty much biweekly, as well as a fresh new Battlepass appearing with every act, you need a pretty full wallet to purchase your cosmetic loadout.

So if you want to know exactly how much you’ll have to cash out for a snazzy new skin, we’ve got a conversion system below for you.

Let’s be real, we’ve all seen this screen before.

How many VP can I buy?

Valorant Points are available via the store in allotments of either $7, $14 or $68. The conversion for £, $ and € are just below:

4000 35 48 40
5800 50 68 57
12,000 100 136 113

How much VP are skins?

While skins are distributed across different tier levels, bundles and individual skins can be bought for different prices. It’s these skins that Valorant players sink most of their VP into as player cards, sprays and so on are available largely for free.

Bundles offer players the chance to get all of the new skin line for a discounted price, as well as exclusive goodies such gun buddies.

Skin Tier Valorant Points (VP) GBP (£) USD ($) Euro (€)
Select 2930 25 34 29
Deluxe 5100 45 61 51
Premium 7100 60 82 68
Ultra 9900 87 119 99
Exclusive Varies

Every skin, however, will rotate through the store daily so if you’re not interested in collecting the whole set then you can pick up a single weapon in store. Roughly, this is how much real money these will set you back in each currency.

Skin Tier Valorant Points (VP) GBP (£) USD ($) Euro (€)
Select 875 7 10 8

How much VP are Radianite Points?

Radianite Points are a must for any Valorant fan who wants to dominate Future Earth in style. We’ve got  RP guide here, but here’s how much each bundle costs:

20 1600 15 20 17

Sony’s next major State of Play event is on the horizon as the PlayStation nation is in store for “deep dives” on a wide array of upcoming titles. From when it all kicks off to what we can expect, here’s everything there is to know.

With a lack of physical events in 2021, gaming industry juggernauts have turned to online events to break the latest news. Hot off the heels of Nintendo’s latest Direct event, Sony is next in line for a huge showcase.

State of Play broadcasts have ranged from smaller indie events to blockbuster hardware reveals. This time around, Sony appears set to focus on upcoming PS4 and PS5 titles.

There were just four State of Play events through 2020 and each focused on major developments for the PlayStation brand. You won’t want to miss the next livestream; here’s how you can tune in.

Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart could be a big focus throughout this State of Play.

When is Sony’s next State of Play event?

Sony locked in dates for the next State of Play event in a February 23 announcement. It’s all set to go live on Thursday, February 25 at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET / 10 PM GMT.

While no exact duration was announced, Sony expects the upcoming broadcast to run for roughly “30 minutes or so.”

No different from previous events, this State of Play will be streamed live across the official PlayStation YouTube and Twitch channels. We’ve embedded the stream below for your convenience.

Sony confirms State of Play details

While no specific titles were mentioned, Sony confirmed that 10 games will be in focus throughout the upcoming stream. These games will range from indie titles, to third-party developments, and even brand new game announcements.

The event won’t fixate solely on PS5 releases either. A number of the titles on display are coming to both PS4 & PS5, they confirmed in a recent blog post.

There also won’t be an emphasis on “PlayStation hardware or business-focused updates” throughout the stream; this State of Play is about upcoming games.

It could be too early for new information on Horizon Forbidden West.

What to expect from the next State of Play event?

Almost a quarter of the way through the year already, Sony still has a long list of titles set for the coming nine months. It’s safe to assume this State of Play could provide new looks at Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Deathloop, and even Returnal.

It’s likely too early for any considerable updates on the likes of Horizon Forbidden West or the God of War sequel, however. 

With new games set to be revealed though, anything is possible.

We’re yet to hear from Bend Studio, Santa Monica Studio is rumored to be working on a second project, and of course, Naughty Dog has been relatively quiet since the release of The Last of Us Part II. It’s possible we finally see the multiplayer update in action, along with a potential PS5 port.
