Sony has revealed the final details of its PlayStation VR2 headset, including price, launch date, and available games.

PlayStation VR2: $549 price, releases in February, pre-orders going live soon 24

The new PlayStation VR2 headset will cost more than an actual PS5, Sony has announced. The PSVR2 headset will retail for $549.99 / €599.99 / £529.99 / ¥74,980, roughly $50 more than the disc-based PS5 model in North America. For comparison's sake, the original PSVR launched at $399, the same price of a retail PS4 model. The price reflects the headset's significant upgrades, chief of which is removing the snake's mess of cords from the original PSVR--this upgraded model uses a single USB-C cord to connect directly to the PlayStation 5.

The PSVR2 will release on February 23, 2023 but pre-orders will begin later this month on PlayStation's direct storefront. Users can now register for a chance to be invited to pre-order the headset.

Apart from the single USB-C cord and elimination of the PSVR's cumbersome breakout processing box, the biggest upgrades the PSVR2 offers are a new 2000x2040 resolution OLED panel with 90hz and 120hz refresh rates. Field-of-view has also been tweaked to 110-degrees and the headset has pass-through vision allowing gamers to easily see the real-world around them, as well as built-in tracking systems so a PS Camera is not required for play.

The retail $549 PSVR2 bundle comes with a headset, two next-gen Dualsense VR controllers, and a stereo headset.

Sony will also sell a $599 bundle that includes Horizon Call of the Mountain, the new first-party PSVR2 game that should showcase the full capabilities of the new virtual reality platform.
