The PlayStation VR2 headset and controller will come in 2023.
Late yesterday, official PlayStation accounts posted a PlayStation VR2 picture and confirmed a “early 2023 release.” This doesn’t provide a specific release date, but it seems we’ll be able to purchase the new VR headset by March.
Sony teased the PlayStation VR2 headset in February 2021 and the PS5 controller the following month. Sony unveiled updated VR headset details in July.
It promises to revolutionise console VR gaming with two graphics modes for VR and non-VR games, up to 120Hz frame rates, HDR, unique play areas, see-through vision, and live streaming.
We need a pricing immediately. With supply chain issues, significant inflation, and lockdowns in China, it’s doubtful Sony can match the original’s $350 pricing. Upgraded electronics and a new controller design suggest a higher price. We should know before year’s end.

PSVR2 specs confirmed
Sony just unveiled VR2’s specs. VR2 will have an OLED display screen with 20002040 per eye resolution and 90/120Hz frame rate for great detail. Four cameras will watch the headset and controller, while an IR camera will track the eyes. 110 degrees should be visible.
More tactile feedback
Sony is working to improve the VR headset’s haptics, which debuted with the PS5 DualSense controller. Sony said haptics, greater quality, wide FOV, eye tracking, and 3D audio will enhance in-game activities and establish industry norms.
The PlayStation VR2 Sense Controller is likely to be included. Sony’s next controller will include adaptable triggers, like DualSense. This should increase sensory immersion.
