SONY just announced the release date and price of its upcoming PS VR2 VR headset.
The company previously announced that it would not be releasing in time for the holiday season.
PS VR2 release date is set February 22, 2023although pre-orders will start in the next few weeks.

Fans are excited for Sony’s new headset, which will bring VR console gaming up to par with its high-end PC counterparts.
Now that the price has been announced, many say they can’t afford one.
The price of PlayStation consoles and accessories is at an all-time high, which Sony attributes to high inflation rates around the world.
The latest console, the PS5, recently received a price increase in all areas outside the US despite launching two years ago.
This means the more expensive disc-based console now retails in the UK for £480.
Despite this increase, the new VR headset will cost even more than PlayStation’s most expensive console.
The headset is sold with all the necessary components, including two PS VR2 Sense controllers and stereo headphones.
But it will cost £50 more than the disc-based PS5 console that retails £529.99 ($549.99).
This is before you buy games for it, of course, although there’s also a £569.99 ($599.99) bundle with Horizon Call of the Mountain.
Eleven other games have been announced for the upcoming headset, although not all will be available at launch.
Here are all the announced games:
- The Dark Pictures: Switchback VR
- Crossfire: Sierra Squad
- The Light Brigade
- Cities VR – Enhanced Edition
- Cosmonic High
- Hello Neighbor: Search and Rescue
- Jurassic World Aftermath Collection
- Pistol Whip VR
- Zenith: The Last City
- After the fall
You can learn more about these games on the PlayStation Blog.
PlayStation also recently unveiled a new “Pro” controller, the DualSense Edge, which aims to compete with the Xbox Elite controllers.
This is another expensive accessory for the PS5 that retails for £209.99 ($199.99).
