With the PlayStation VR headset often still hard to get hold of, retailers haven’t seen the need to reduce the price of the new headset since it launched back in October.
Act fast though and you could save £50 and get a refurbished PlayStation VR for just £299, instead of the regular £349.99.
That’s the cheapest PSVR price yet, beating Tesco’s previous best of £335 from last year – a deal that always sold out the same day whenever it popped up. Since then, £349.99 has been the norm at stores around the UK.
What does refurbished mean? Well, in Tesco’s own words from the listing: “This item is refurbished. It has been examined, tested and graded and is good cosmetic condition but may show signs of previous use such as scratches or scuffs. The item is fully tested and working and is supported by a 12 month Tesco Outlet warranty.”
More supporting text found on the listing explains how some refurbished items have never been used and may have been returned as unwanted gifts, or the box may have minor cosmetic damage.
The only other disclaimer to note reads: “The item will come with the accessories / cables required for the item to function but may not have additional accessories.” Worst case scenario, we’d say there’s a small chance some of the paperwork or the demo disc is be missing. Not exactly a problem as setup is simple enough, the manuals are available online and you can download the demos for free from PSN.
Note: as you’re probably also aware, all PlayStation VR units require the additional purchase of a PlayStation 4 camera in order to work. Check out our PlayStation VR deals page for the best prices on those.
A look around past completed listings on eBay from private sellers shows used PlayStation VR units sold for no lower than £300, and often quite a lot more. So when compared to buying traditional second hand units, you’re still saving money. More importantly, unlike buying preowned from folks on eBay, you’re getting a 12-month warranty with this PlayStation VR deal, for added buyer confidence.
