Sony's next-generation Virtual Reality headset features impressive hardware, including an OLED screen featuring 2000 x 2040 per eye resolution at a 90Hz refresh rate and a strong lineup of future titles.

PlayStation VR2 is set for a February 22, 2023 release date, priced at $549/-. The package includes a PSVR2 headset along with new VR controllers and Stereo headphones. Sony has also revealed a Horizon Call of the Mountain bundle that features the new Virtual Reality title set in the Horizon universe.


PlayStation VR2 is priced at $549/- with a February 2023 release date

When the original PlayStation VR launched back in 2016, it was considered revolutionary. It, along with Oculus Rift (later renamed Meta) and HTC Vive, paved the way for modern age: Virtual Reality gaming. Six years later, while VR gaming remains a niche, it has certainly become more accessible with a vast library of titles like Pistol Whip and Beat Saber.

PSVR2 builds upon the benchmark set by its predecessor and promises to present generational leaps in Virtual Reality gaming. While fans are certainly not pleased with its $549/- price tag, which is more than PS5's $499/-, it is very much in line with PSVR's launch price.

The original Virtual Reality headset, along with all of its accessories, was priced at $399/- at launch, which was significantly higher than the base PS4 and the PS4 Slim's $299/- price tag.
