‘Try PlayStation VR’ Sony Promotion With ‘Skyrim VR’ A Resounding Success

Sony’s PlayStation VR product for its PlayStation 4 console has been selling modestly since its launch, but the company wanted to drum up more interest in the headset. As such, the Japanese electronics firm launched a promotion called “Try PlayStation VR” that allowed select PlayStation Plus members to try to get a set for free. The campaign sold out, but there is a catch that participants need to bear in mind.

Over 1,400 PlayStation Plus members are about to have the chance to try out PS VR for themselves and see what the fuss is all about. Along with the VR headset itself, the participants are also getting the PS Camera, PS Move controllers, the Demo Disco 2.0, and also one copy of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR, PC Mag reports.

Now, it’s worth pointing out that the promotion has since ended since there are no longer PS VR bundles to give away for free. It’s also important to note that there is a time limit as to how long the product will remain free.

The players who are getting the bundles will have up to 14 days to give the system a whirl and see what it’s all about. Sony felt that this is enough time to make a decision as to whether they like PS VR or not. If they don’t, the participants need to return the sets to the company in the time allotted. Otherwise, they will automatically be charged $300 on the credit cards that they submitted during sign-up.

With regards to a possible “Try PlayStation VR 2.0,” there has been no word from Sony on that matter, Slash Gear reports. If this new campaign ends up boosting sales of the product, it’s likely that the Japanese giant will bring it back. In any case, it all depends on whether or not the participants will keep their headsets and how the promotion affects sales.
