The PlayStation VR2 finally has a release date. The gaming device will launch on Feb. 22, 2023, with a starting price of $550 (€600, £530), the company said in a blog post Wednesday.
The PS VR2 will arrive more than six years after its predecessor and will include a slew of upgrades and redesigned hardware. Sony first shared details of the next-gen headset in January 2022, noting that the VR2 will have sensors to detect eye motion and integrated headset cameras for controller tracking.
It also comes with 4K HDR, 3D sound and an OLED display with a 110-degree field of view that aims to create a more immersive experience.
According to a Bloomberg report in October, the company has ordered 2 million units.
On Wednesday, Sony also dropped a list of 11 new games that will be available at launch, increasing its anticipated lineup to at least 20 titles.
In addition to Resident Evil Village and Horizon Call of the Mountain, VR2 players can also dive into The Dark Pictures: Switchback VR, Crossfire: Sierra Squad, The Light Brigade, Cosmonious High, Cities VR — Enhanced Edition, Pistol Whip VR, Jurassic World Aftermath Collection, Zenith: The Last City, Hello Neighbor: Search and Rescue, After the Fall and Tentacular.
The $550 base price for the PS VR2 includes the headset, sense controllers and stereo headphones. There is also an option to purchase the hardware as a Horizon Call of the Mountain game bundle for $600. Controller charging stations are sold separately for $50.
