PSVR in home trial for PS+ members YMMV

Just received an email to try psvr in home for 14 days. Would then either need to be able to send it back or be billed $300. Skyrim bundle includes camera and move controllers. Gives me a single use registration code to use as well. Appears to be from the PlayStation email list, but has anyone else received this? Sounds tempting, but I couldn't find mention of it on the web or PlayStation blog.

You’re invited to try PS VR at your home for free

Any point in even trying with a regular PS4?

Just got it as well, if it’s legit it’s a great deal for that bundle ... $50 less than BF price and you get to try it before you pay.

Just got it. Sounds tempting, but a $300 hold on my cc for it is a no go for me.

Only available to the first 1,400 invited participants who sign up ... no mention of return shipping being covered or reimbursed.

Edit - what they said

"At the end of the 14-day trial period, you must follow the instructions provided with the Bundle that explains how to repack the Bundle items and send the Bundle back to PlayStation using the overnight pre-paid postage that we included with the Bundle when we sent it to you."

As of now, I could trade-in my v1 headset, 2 old move controllers, camera, and Skyrim for about $150 worth of credit with PRO account. Essentially $150 to upgrade to v2 headset.

I got worried for a second after checking WHOIS domain info on the URL. It's registered to PrizeLogic, but it appears they run promotions for a variety of companies.

Any word on if the V2 headsets reduce things like world wobble?

No, the v2 is mainly just to allow HDR passthrough and streamline the physical controls on the headset.

I got one, but I don't wanna have that much money on hold. Especially since I know I'll just play the free PS+ stuff and get bored or spend even more washing the vomit off my clothes

Number of mentions of PrizeLogic on Twitter, mainly complaints from other people related to receiving prizes won from various contests/sweepstakes.

A little worrisome if something goes wrong like if I wouldn't receive the PSVR and/or if decide to send back and it doesn't get there. Sounds like  a difficult company to deal with.
