It's official: PlayStation VR2 will hit the market next February 22, 2023, at a recommended retail price of $549.99. Pre-orders will start on November 15 of this year. The Japanese company takes a step forward in its investment in virtual reality by launching it just two years after PS5; and yes, it is more expensive than the console itself.
Its price starts from a bundle that includes the headset, a pair of PS VR2 Sense controllers, and a stereo headset. On the same day, an additional bundle that includes Horizon Call of the Mountain, in addition to the contents mentioned in the basic version, will go on sale at an additional cost of $599.99. A controller charging station will also be sold separately and will cost $49.99. The PlayStation Blog mentions that Sony expects “more than 20 titles at launch.”
In the United States, pre-sales will be made through PlayStation's online store via this link. Players may begin to register for pre-orders starting today
PlayStation VR2, the next generation of virtual reality from Sony
More than five years have passed since the first version of PlayStation VR. Since then, Sony has considered new market trends to build a device that breaks with many of the limitations of that model. Among its main virtues is a 2000x2040 resolution OLED panel in each eye, which achieves a compatible refresh rate of 90Hz and 120Hz. The field of view, on the other hand, extends up to 110 degrees.
To play you only need to plug into your PS5 console the USB-C cable that hangs from the viewer. The cameras built into the chassis of the viewfinder will take care of recording the movement of the controllers in real-time. That registration is transferred inside the viewfinder: the movement of your eyes will be registered in the same way.
