With a decidedly surprising and rather confusing announcement, Sony has confirmed the PlayStation VR2 launch window. Check out all the complete detail below.
PlayStation VR2 Launches in Early 2023
The Japanese company’s new virtual reality headset, PlayStation VR2, designed exclusively for the PlayStation 5 console, will be available worldwide in early 2023. Not giving a precise release date at the moment, although, at this point, it is easy to imagine that Sony will confirm it at the end of this year along with the long-awaited price.
This is PlayStation’s new virtual reality device. A product that has captivated the attention of fans and PlayStation players and has already aroused several reactions from the public. Reactions are mostly positive, with the public curious to see the new capabilities of this virtual reality kit.
As mentioned, there seems to have been some confusion with this announcement. To give the news first of all were the Twitter accounts of PlayStation Italy, France, and Japan, followed by the profile of the United Kingdom. On Twitter, there is currently no post from the American PlayStation account (usually the first to announce the news of the brand), which however has relaunched the announcement on Instagram.

Regarding its characteristics or even some of its user experiences, we already know a lot. In addition to a new all-around design, the PS VR2 will make a serious leap in the quality of its OLED display. We will indeed go from a modest resolution of 960 x 1080 to 2000 x 2040 pixels. The headset will also be HDR compatible. The frequency remains at 90 and 120 Hz, while the field of vision will gain 10° to reach 110°.
Additionally, Sony has announced that more than 20 major games will be available at launch for PSVR 2. The price of the PlayStation VR2 has also not been announced for now, but the first generation of the headset launched in 2016 was priced at $399.
PSVR 2 will release in the next 2023 year.
