Playstation VR Skyrim Trial Bundle - $299.99 - YMMV - Check your emails

$299.99
+4 Deal Score
6,120 Views
Just received an email from Sony offering a Playstation VR trial bundle. You get to try it for free for 14 days, and ship it back to them for no cost.

Email comes from PlayStation@playstationemail.com and the subject is: "You're invited to try PS VR at your home for free"

If you choose to keep it, it costs $299.99 (they put a hold on your credit card.) Can't tell if they charge tax or not.

Looks like it includes:

PSVR v2 Headset
PS Camera
2 Move Controllers
Skyrim Game
Demo Disc

The rules said it would be for up to 1400 people and the email contains a registration code.

You can redeem the code at www.tryplaystationvr.com. The offer expires December 14th.

Careful, I signed up, but this may actually be a scam: https://www.reddit.com/r/PSVR/com...egitimate/

Domain owned by PrizeLogic. Email address sender seems legit, but people have contacted Sony Support and they have mentioned that this may be a scam. Although who knows if Sony Support would really know.

Got the same. Verified it is from Sony. The trace on email confirmed the same route from my weekly PlayStation emails. Bundle selling for $449. Seems like a solid deal. No mention of tax in the "fine" print.

I signed up. I've had my info stolen a half dozen times from LEGIT businesses. Fraudulent charges are gone and a new card issued in minutes after contacting CC company. No worries. Seems like a solid deal if no tax. Bundle is selling for $450 plus tax.

Looks like it from doing searches on Google and Twitter. They've done stuff for Taco Bell and other companies as well.

Overall, it does seem mostly legitimate at this point with the company handling the domain and the sender of the email.

Reddit suggests that this is a scam, reportedly confirmed by Sony. Careful, people.

My concern is that wouldn't Sony know about this? After all, PlayStation@playstationemail.com is an official email address.

The website is the one in question.

Unless someone hacked Sony (again) and sent out all of these emails it is legit. The email is from Sony.

With the size of Sony/Playstation, I would question how much their call center would know about this stuff. The customer support on that site links to ZenDesk site for PrizeLogic.
