Eric Lempel's Avatar Posted by Senior Vice President, PlayStation Worldwide Marketing, SIE

From September 15 through October 19, you can pick up a specially-marked $5 Taco Bell Big Box at participating Taco Bell locations and text in the code on the box for a chance to win. One winner will be selected approximately every 15 minutes!

The prize pack includes one PlayStation VR headset, two PlayStation Move motion controllers, a PlayStation Camera, and a $40 PlayStation Store credit that can be used toward the game of your choice. Winners will begin receiving their prize packs in early October.

For additional details, rules, and instructions on how to enter, please head to the official site:

    That’s awesome! I hope to make a comment like this when get older. “I am 70 years old and love playing PS13.”

Looks like you get the old style camera if you win one of these packages.

    Crazymanwalking1 said:

    September 15th, 7:55 am

    They should’ve give away the redesigned camera since its coming out soon

Major_Glitch_ said:

September 15th, 5:25 am

Looks like i’m going to be eating a LOT of taco bell within the next few of weeks.

    Ryzza5 said:

    September 15th, 5:50 am

    I’m curious to know how much that would cost in terms of a %age of the PS VR price. I don’t really have TB here so no idea on their typical prices.

    ActuaIButT said:

    September 15th, 6:38 am

    To Ryzza5 who also replied to this comment…

    The price is right there on the banner dude. Mystery solved.

    AK_AWolf said:

    September 16th, 3:46 pm

    The banner does say $5, but here in Alaska they are $8.

SherSher_Holmes said:

Funny how the mail in free entry requires a 3.5×5 postcard, which isn’t the standard for postcards.

JHAKLx0 said:

September 15th, 5:58 am

Woo Hoo! Time to fat’n up the kids… and buy lots of toilet paper.

    Crazymanwalking1 said:

    September 15th, 7:51 am

    I have a feeling you’re gonna spend more on toilet paper than on the food…

Rockersreunion said:

September 15th, 5:58 am

Just a heads up/reminder to Sony, we do have Taco Bell up in Canada too…

    YorlecmNwahs said:

    September 15th, 7:42 am

    I have a feeling this doesn’t apply to us Canucks.

    Rockersreunion said:

    September 15th, 9:13 am

    It doesn’t, that’s what’s frustrating about it and why I felt the need to tell we have them up here, because that way they would be able to include us in things like this. I personally feel it’s crazy that they don’t bother with us.

    ImFrigginChester said:

    September 16th, 11:59 am

    It’s okay, man, the US has Taco Bells in the Northern states. All you have to do is… make a run for the border (o_O)

    Rockersreunion said:

    September 19th, 4:07 am

    Yeah, but that’s not really the point. Being forced to cross the border just for Taco Bell so I can enter a contest in ridiculous, and that doesn’t even cover all the extra work around I’d have to do to claim as only Americans are eligible to win.

SilentNova said:

September 15th, 6:06 am

Remember, one entry per person, per day.

egcool said:

fecks said:

Canada excluded……

LaRonStar said:

September 15th, 6:43 am

Taco Bell stock always go up when they have theses giveaways. I guess I’ll try my luck but someone will get free tacos I’m not a fan of there food anymore unfortunately.

    unlovedhomie said:

    September 15th, 7:29 am

    You had me at free taco

    GuardianFoxxed said:

    October 12th, 10:30 pm

    Free tacos are delicious… I enter and give you the prize if I win but I keep the food

krae_man said:

September 15th, 6:58 am

Again with the US only promotions Sony?

Taco Bell exists in Canada and you are 100% capable of having the contest be here too.

Why do you continue to choose to not include Canada in these things?

Biz_Markee said:

September 15th, 7:03 am

Dear Sony, how in the world are you going to make a 4K gaming rig but not have a 4K drive in order to play 4K games? I understand digitally downloaded games maybe being 4K native but without a 4K drive you are just up scaling the resolution? Are you simply up scaling a digital download as well?

    krae_man said:

    September 15th, 7:27 am

    A 4k game could be put on a DVD. The disks are just file storage and nothing more. A disk doesn’t have a maximum resolution output.

    SlyCooperFan100 said:

    September 15th, 11:27 am

    Yes, PS4 Pro is upscaling for 4K. I’m shocked that so many people are shocked about this, because it was leaked ages ago. Plus, it’s not new. PS3 upscales to 1080p.

    If you wanted the PS4 Pro to run native 4K, the price of it would at least double because of the processing power required. Very few computers in the world are capable of producing native 4K, how would you expect a $400 PS4 model to be able to do it?

    azn_kwak said:

    September 15th, 7:29 pm

    Very much agreed with SlyCooperFan100. It appears many console folks don’t realize not many current beefed up PC’s can do what they’re asking and a PC like that would easily cost more than double, I’d actually argue even triple, the cost of the PS4 Pro.

unlovedhomie said:

September 15th, 7:27 am

Has anyone ever won one of these PlayStation taco bell cross promotions ? Ever

    Crazymanwalking1 said:

    September 15th, 7:42 am

    I Have

    Back when they were giving away PS Vitas, I bought about 10 box’s, few months later I was notified as a winner although I already had a vita by then

    Khonshu61 said:

    September 15th, 11:50 am

    I actually won my ps4 from them when they were running the destiny bundle with white ps4

    matenartin said:

    September 26th, 3:44 pm

    I won my PS4 from Taco Bell and I just won the PS VR headset today… Both on my second try.

pewpewmigoo said:

September 15th, 8:15 am

I won !!! Thank you for saving me 500 bucks .

    Bradsour said:

    September 15th, 9:03 am

    Only one here so far that isn’t PS+ I sense a conspiracy to force non PS+ers to get it. LOL


    October 14th, 10:01 am

    Those of you that said you won this PSVR and PS4s,it says a winner every 15 minutes! What time of day did you enter? And does anyone ever win with those free codes you either get from sending a post card or getting one online?

sandkwithhp said:

September 15th, 8:52 am

I wish the purchasable launch bundles included a $40 PSN credit like this one, instead of a retail copy of VR Worlds.

    Bradsour said:

    September 15th, 9:02 am

    Pretty sure they still get VR Worlds.

animuson said:

September 15th, 9:55 am

Would you PLEASE stop partnering with Taco Bell for these promotions? I have celiac disease and am not even capable of eating at Taco Bell, even if I really wanted to do so. Why can’t you just run your own promotions and base it on gamer activity or something? Give back to those of us who actually spend a great deal of time on your network, rather than people who eat at some completely unrelated restaurant.

    SlyCooperFan100 said:

    September 15th, 11:27 am

    Why not pay the $5 and then throw out the food?

DevilsArm said:

September 15th, 10:00 am

I WON! just after 11am EST i picked up the box, entered the code and won the bundle, Thank you sony!!!!!

    azn_kwak said:

@DevilsArm Congrat! Enjoy that VR

earth_inheritor said:

September 15th, 10:34 am

I really hate these. I want to win but i shouldn’t have to eat non descriptive meat items and terrible fake cheese to do it.
Just once i want to see a healthy partnership.
As a guy doing my best to loose weight I”m already eliminated from entering this

    Alaskan32420 said:

    September 18th, 2:36 pm

    Yes yes and..yes

dramos209 said:

September 15th, 11:49 am

If you don’t want the food, give it to a homeless person. Keep the code they won’t need it.

Kishnabe said:

September 15th, 11:50 am

Taco Bell known for scamming winners out of their PS4. Not worth it. Save your money and protect your intestines.

Reaper527_ said:

September 15th, 12:48 pm

thanks, but no thanks. i’ll wait for the official psvr launch and skip the taco bell crap.

Shedagilos said:

September 15th, 3:24 pm

Omg, not this debacle again. There were always some issues with this promotion. Did anyone ever win one of the previous promos? I don’t know which promo was worse, Taco Bell or Subway. It would be gr8 to win one of these, but oh well.

    matenartin said:

    September 26th, 3:48 pm

    I won my PS4 exactly as described (a few days early) and now just won a PSVR. No complaints here!

Loonknight said:

September 15th, 3:47 pm

Man and I just had a Big Box meal yesterday, I should have known there would be a promotion coming.

de77 said:

September 15th, 4:38 pm

Disappointed ….. went to taco bell for the $5 ps4 big box . They had all the signs up and pictures for it . Ordered 2 for the family. And they didnt have any . And said they dont know when they will get some

SpooNManX said:

September 15th, 5:37 pm

Next time partner with Weight Watchers…
No more of this awful Taco Bell “food” :P

furleys_ascot said:

September 15th, 6:35 pm

Spoiler alert: A lot of taco bell employees will be enjoying psvr…

Evil_Kei said:

September 15th, 7:04 pm

As a Canuck this is what I have for you: thanks for nothing Sony & Taco Bell. Here’s why:

1. Those taco bell box is like $8 over here and has been like this long before our exchange rate tanked;
2. The contest excludes us Canucks so our chance of winning one is 0; and
3. What if I buy the PS VR out of my own pocket? Oh wait after the exchange rate we are paying more than the USD MSRP.

I just want to sit on my a**, playing games and eating junk food. Why are you guys making it so much more difficult in here?

FurryRomo said:

September 15th, 7:32 pm

Every year it’s the same thing with their partnership with TB confirmed

KnightRid said:

September 16th, 3:55 am

Well if it is like every other Taco bell promotion Sony has done the employees will take everything and hand it out to friends so nobody really has a chance to win (at least around here). You get the “Oh, we are out of those” or “We are not participating in that promotion”.

Oh well maybe some year Sony will partner with a good company that actually has good food…….then again maybe the PS4 will have backwards compatibility or Now will let you play for FREE the games you already own for the PS3….yea none of these things will likely happen ;)

    sealsaa83 said:

    September 17th, 3:13 pm

    A Taco Bell employee tried that with me during the Vita promotion. I ordered the box and he just handed me my food in a bag. I told him “No, I want I want the contest box that I paid for” and he grabbed one from a stack of several. I made sure that the code worked before I left.

SSAboy10 said:

September 16th, 2:21 pm

I tried this and i got an invalid code, does anyone know what i can do or what this means?

luke1348 said:

September 17th, 1:35 am

luke1348 said:

September 17th, 1:38 am

hualian said:

September 18th, 12:24 pm

I smell a lawsuit. The “non-purchase” web site doesn’t even exist.

    jrdemonboy said:

    September 19th, 12:11 am

    the online non purchase code doesnt start util oct.5 so thats probably why the site wont work

Alaskan32420 said:

September 18th, 2:27 pm

Sucks for the ppl that live in remote areas where there isn’t a Taco Bell or anything crappy like that for hundreds of miles.

Alaskan32420 said:

September 18th, 2:29 pm

cool I’ll travel hundreds of miles to the nearest Taco Bell..not

Ace_Relic said:
