So I was shopping on Amazon.ca & I came across some chances to score me a Playstation VR bundle. I missed out a couple of times as I tried to redeem some points to get some Amazon.ca gift cards. Strangely, there are a lot of bundles going cheap from their warehouse deals. A lot of cases were damages here & there. Some of them have major to medium damage. I manage to score one with no damage mentioned. Just possible repackaging. See how it is much cheaper to get this than the retail price of $600, I took the chance. Here’s how it looks like.
Repackaged indeed. The box suffers from medium to major damage from the top flip. By the way, this is the Skyrim bundle. I went for this since it has the Move controllers. I have my old PS3 Move controllers, but I figured might as well get another set since this is an update version of it. Might be better than what I have. Plus, my old Move controllers haven’t been used for a long time. So there may be some battery leakage of not holding its charge. I’m not a Elder Scroll fan, but this bundle has the best deal.
Anyways, I don’t mind the damage on the box. My concern is the VR headset being good condition or not. Luckily, the box is indeed repackaged as nothing inside has been opened. But I have some issues of blurriness using the headset. It’s okay from a certain distance. But when it gets too close to my eyes, things seem out of focus. I read that this problem is common & can be fixed. I just don’t remember how.
Anyways, I did do a test run to see if it would make me sick since I can’t deal with first person shooters. Went from slow still things like static areas to less to medium dramatic things like moving around place at a normal to fast pace. Strangely enough, I didn’t feel sick. I did feel a bit hot at times. Probably because things got too close to me at times. But overall, I’m okay.
So this purchase wasn’t a bad one. Although I didn’t spend too much real money on it, it was a safe purchase nevertheless. I’m happy about it. Cause selling it back out would be hard with that damaged box (even though nothing inside has been opened) & shipping it back for a refund would a hassle.
In the end, I’m keeping it. So, I will be getting Summer Lesson! All 3 episodes of it! =D
