Sony has just announced that the PlayStation VR2 will be available for pre-order on November 15th, with an official launch on February 22nd, 2023, with a suggested retail price of $549.99. It includes a PlayStation VR2 headset, a PlayStation VR2 Sense controller, and an as-yet-undisclosed stereo headset. Sony also offers a charging unit for the controller as an option for $49.99. The PlayStation VR2 isn’t cheap, even more, expensive than the PlayStation 5 console itself.

The PlayStation VR2 connects to the PlayStation 5 via USB-C and uses a single-eye 2000×2040 resolution OLED screen with a 90/120Hz refresh rate, providing 4K HDR and a 110-degree field of view for a high-quality visual experience. PlayStation VR2 Sense technology combines eye tracking, headset feedback, 3D audio, and the PlayStation VR2 Sense controller to create a deep sense of immersion. Tempest 3D AudioTech with PlayStation 5 can also make the sound around the player more realistic, bringing a unique gaming experience. The eye-tracking hardware is made by Sweden’s Tobii, a company specializing in eye-tracking solutions.

Sony also announced 11 new PlayStation VR2 games.
