Sony to launch its PlayStation VR2 in early 2023

According to tweets and Instagram posts from Sony, the PlayStation VR2 headset will launch in “early 2023.” Over the past few months, Sony has been dribbling out details regarding the impending headset, and now we at least have a timeline for when we may anticipate receiving the hardware.

Although the company revealed the headset’s design in more detail earlier this year, it has yet to reveal pricing. However, it makes a lot of promises for the PlayStation VR2: it will have displays with a combined 4K resolution, be able to run at 90 or 120 Hz, have a 110-degree field of view, and use foveated rendering, which makes some parts of the image appear sharper than others to facilitate computing (or, in this case, the PlayStation 5). The company further claims that a single USB C cable is used to connect the headset to your console.

When it launches, Sony will have a selection of roughly 20 “big” games, according to previous statements. The titles include VR adaptations of No Man’s Sky and Resident Evil Village as well as games set in the Horizon and Walking Dead universes.


The PS VR2 headgear does not employ a camera attached to your system to track your motions, in contrast to the original PlayStation VR headset. Instead, it will employ inside-out tracking, similar to the Quest 2, in which the motion is tracked by cameras built into the headgear. As a result, you will be able to view the world around you when using the PS VR2 headset. Additionally, according to Sony, the PlayStation 5 will allow you to stream yourself while playing VR games, but a PlayStation HD camera must be connected.

Sony has displayed the orb-shaped controllers, which will have adjustable triggers and haptic feedback similar to what the DualSense controller for the PS5 offers.

Additionally, they will be equipped with finger-touch detection, which detects where your thumb, index, or middle finger rests without the need for pressing. Only the PS5 is compatible with the PS VR2. That could sound like a poor idea given how difficult it has been to obtain the console since its release in November 2020. The consoles no longer sell out right away once Sony sets a queue for them, and you can now purchase a bundle that contains Horizon Forbidden West. These are two indications that the problems may be easing. Currently, it appears probable that you might only be able to get a PS5 anytime you want by the time the headset launches.

The entire tech sector is still waiting for Apple to reveal its long-rumored mixed reality headgear, which is expected to cost several thousand dollars. According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the headset could be unveiled in January 2023.
