Sony reveals PS VR2 pricing, release date, and packages

Sony Interactive Entertainment’s next-generation VR headset, PlayStation VR2, will be available on February 22, 2023, with a starting price of $549.99 (€599.99/£529.99). The VR headgear itself, as well as a pair of PS VR2 Sense controllers and stereo headphones, are included in the box. The PlayStation VR2 headset is only compatible with a PlayStation 5 and does not work with original PlayStation VR titles.

Pre-orders for the PlayStation VR2 combo will go live on November 15 in the United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, and Luxembourg, first through PlayStation’s online shop. Customers may begin registering for a pre-order place on Wednesday. Those who manage to acquire a pre-order will “ship throughout the week of launch,” according to Sony.

Customers residing outside of the aforementioned countries and regions can pre-order the PlayStation VR2 from participating shops.

The PlayStation VR2 headset costs far more than the PlayStation 5 system itself. The PS5 Digital Edition costs $399.99 in the United States, whereas the basic PS5 model with a Blu-ray disc drive costs $499.99.

In Europe, the PS5 now costs €449.99 for the Digital Edition and €549.99 for the Blu-ray disc version; while in the United Kingdom, the PS5 now costs £389.99 for the Digital Edition and £479.99 for the Blu-ray disc version. Sony has upped the prices of both PS5 models in certain territories. (In addition, Rival Meta recently hiked the price of its Meta Quest 2 VR headsets, which now cost $399.99 for the 128 GB variant and $499.99 for the 256 GB model.)

Sony is also selling a package including Horizon VR offshoot Horizon Call of the Mountain for $599.99 (€649.99/£569.99) and a Sense controller charging station for $49.99 (€49.99/£39.99) in addition to the standard edition of PlayStation VR2.

Sony’s PS VR2 headgear, which was introduced in January, has eye-tracking, inside-out camera tracking (no need for a PlayStation Camera), a motor providing haptic input from the headset itself, a 4K HDR display with a resolution of 2000×2040 per eye, and a single wire connection to the PS5.

Sony’s first PlayStation VR headset, compatible with the PlayStation 4, was released in October 2016 for $399.99. That was more expensive than a PS4, which was selling for $349.99 at the time. Sony released the PlayStation 4 Pro, which costs $399.99, a month after the PlayStation VR.
