Sony will let you try out PlayStation VR at home

Sony is rolling out a new program that lets customers try a complete PSVR set in their homes for a limited time for free.

Sony wrote, "We will check to ensure that your credit card is valid when you provide your credit card information to the Administrator but your credit card will not be charged unless you decide to keep the PlayStation VR Trial Bundle or return the PlayStation VR Trial Bundle damaged or missing components". Just remember that, as always, you need to have an active subscription to PlayStation Plus in order to download them for free.

It probably goes without saying that there are a ton of people out there who are interested in VR but aren't willing to take the $400 to $500 plunge into the market without knowing if they'll really enjoy it or not.

At the moment, there's no word if Sony will bring back the Try PlayStation VR program in the future, but this is certainly a good way to boost sales and get word about the headset out there.


The PSVR trial bundle includes The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim and VR demo disc. They'll put a hold on your card and send you the bundle, which you can keep for a few weeks.

"Users are then given the option of keeping Sony's virtual-reality headset for the discounted price of $299.99". Sony may choose to extend the offer and add even more units if they see a low rate of returns as we head into the Christmas holidays.

There are several terms and conditions to keep in mind, however, such as age requirements, the trial period, and others. The promotion is only available between December 1-14 and limited to 1,400 eligible participants. At the time of writing, it appears the program is now full and Sony has shut down registrations.
