The day that PlayStation VR fans have been waiting for is finally here… the reveal of the PlayStation VR2’s price point and release date! And thanks to we’re sure a couple of factors (chip shortages, inflation), it’s neither as cheap as hoped or coming as soon as we’d like.
Either way, the PlayStation VR2 is officially set to launch February 22, 2022 at $549.99 which includes a PS VR2 headset, PS VR2 Sense controllers and stereo headphones. Remember, the PSVR2 is not a standalone headset and requires a PS5 console as well. VR gamers who are looking for a bundle can pick up PlayStation VR2 Horizon Call of the Mountain bundle for an extra $50, so $599.99. As for official accessories, there will be a PlayStation VR2 Sense controller charging station for $50.
Those that wish to pre-order soon should check out direct.playstation.com.
So check out the details below and at the official PS Blog and stay tuned for more info on software (about a dozen games were also confirmed this morning) and more.

During this initial launch phase for our next-gen headset, players in the U.S., U.K., France, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg will initially be able to pre-order PlayStation VR2 solely through PlayStation?s online store at direct.playstation.com. Pre-orders will begin on November 15, and players may begin to register for pre-orders starting today. Orders from direct.playstation.com for PlayStation VR2 headsets and bundles will ship throughout the week of launch.

PlayStation VR2 Sense Technology includes key features that enable unique gameplay experiences, such as headset feedback, eye tracking, 3D audio, and the adaptive triggers and haptic feedback from the PS VR2 Sense controllers. Together with compatible games they will captivate players? senses and offer an incredibly deep feeling of immersion.
Additionally, with enhanced headset-based controller tracking and high fidelity visuals in 4000 x 2040 HDR video format (2000 x 2040 per eye), PS VR2 adds a true next-gen gaming experience for players to enjoy.
We?ve created the PS VR2 headset with comfort in mind, in a slightly slimmer and lighter design compared to our previous headset. We?ve also included an integrated vent for extra air flow, and a lens adjustment dial for a more customized feel. We hope players will enjoy this new design.
Today, we are also pleased to reveal additional titles coming to PlayStation VR2, with fresh new reveals on new titles that are currently in development for PlayStation VR2. Read our announcement here.
It?s exciting to see how game developers are taking advantage of the PS VR2?s headset features to design the next generation of VR games. We?re expecting more than 20 titles at launch, and we can?t wait for February when PS VR2 launches so players can give it a try. We?ll have more details on our launch game lineup in the future, so stay tuned.
