PLAYSTATION VR 2 was officially announced in February 2021 and now we finally have a release date.
The original PSVR was released back in 2016 and is not compatible with current PS5 games.
It can be used with a PS5 via a special adapter. However, only the PS4 versions of games work with the virtual reality system.
The hardware is also very outdated and no longer meets the standard of current headsets.
PlayStation VR is the only console-based virtual reality headset on the market, and console gamers have been eager for an upgrade.
While details about the new system have been slowly released by Sony over the last year and a half, the price and release date have remained secret.
In tweets, the official PlayStation account announced that PSVR2 will be released in early 2023.
PSVR2 will fix a number of issues that players encountered with the original PSVR.
The new headset will feature current VR standards such as near 4K display, eye tracking and individual eye adjustment.
There will also be haptic feedback in the headset to help with motion sickness and a cable connecting it to the console compared to the previous five.
A number of games have also been announced as games in development for the upcoming console.
Rumor has it that Gran Turismo 7 will get a VR update once the headset is released.
Guerrilla Games has also confirmed that a new game from the Horizon series is being developed specifically for PSVR2, called Horizon Call of the Mountain.
First Contact Development has also announced that it is developing a game exclusively for Sony’s upcoming VR.
Those building the hardware for the new system believed it would be released by the end of 2022, in time for the holiday season.
However, due to delays in PS5 production, it is now believed that Sony has pushed back the release date in hopes of creating a larger install base for the console by the end of the year.
