The PlayStation VR 2 (or PSVR 2 for short) is Sony’s latest VR headset. It’s the long-awaited successor to the PlayStation VR for PS 4. It’s a hedset that will work exclusively with PS 5 consoles. Thus, the PSVR 2 will not be a standalone VR hedset, but, in order to function, it will have to be plugged into a PS console.

On their Twitter account, PlayStation announced that the PlayStation VR 2 will be released in early 2023.

Briefly about the Specifications of PSVR 2

Sony has confirmed that the PSVR 2 will be able to display in 4k HDR resolution with a field of view size of 110° and a frame rate of 90/120 Hz. PSVR 2 will also have the ability to fully monitor. This means that the hedset will use a variety of sensors to track your movements and also your gaze. This will allow you to rotate the image in the direction you’re looking, thereby providing a much more intuitive and natural VR experience.

The Hedset will also be equipped with 3D audio, a built-in microphone and a headphone slot. The hedset will be connected to the PlayStation using a USB-C cable.

As for the controllers, they will carry the name PlayStation VR 2 Sense Controller. These controllers contain finger-tracking technology.

Sony prepares 2 million PSVR 2 headsets

A Bloomberg article tells us that Sony plans to produce two million PlayStation VR 2 hedsets by March 2023. Apparently, mass production has already begun and for now it is running without major setbacks (such as, for example, have befallen the production of the PlayStation 5).

How much will PSVR 2 cost?

Sony hasn’t mentioned anything about prices yet, but we certainly don’t think they’ll be low. The first PlayStation VR, when it was launched in 2016, cost about $ 400 (about 3000 kn). PSVR 2 will almost certainly cost significantly more due to the eye monitoring system, more advanced screen and controller.

But the higher price makes sense, as Sony plans to use high-end technology for its new hedset. By comparison, the HTC Vive Pro, currently considered a premium hedset, is sold at $800 (about $6,100).
