Sony Interactive Entertainment recently announced that PlayStation VR2 is officially launching on February 22, 2023.
The initial launch phase of the next-gen headset will take place in the U.S. and select European countries. Those countries include the U.K., France, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, and Luxembourg. Players will initially be able to pre-order PlayStation VR2 solely through PlayStation’s online store. Pre-orders will begin on November 15, and players may begin to register for pre-orders starting today.
In other markets, PlayStation VR2 will be sold at participating retailers, with pre-orders beginning on November 15. Information will be provided through participating local retailers in these regions. The PlayStation VR2 Sense controller charging station, designed specifically for the PS VR2 Sense controller, will also launch the same day.
PlayStation VR2 Sense Technology includes key features that enable unique gameplay experiences, such as headset feedback, eye tracking, 3D audio, and the adaptive triggers and haptic feedback from the PS VR2 Sense controllers. Together with compatible games they will captivate players’ senses and offer an incredibly deep feeling of immersion.
Additionally, with enhanced headset-based controller tracking and high-fidelity visuals in 4000 x 2040 HDR video format (2000 x 2040 per eye), PS VR2 adds a truly next-gen gaming experience for players to enjoy.

Isabelle Tomatis, Vice President of Brand, Hardware, and Peripherals for Sony Interactive Entertainment commented: “We’ve created the PS VR2 headset with comfort in mind, in a slightly slimmer and lighter design compared to our previous headset. We’ve also included an integrated vent for extra airflow, and a lens adjustment dial for a more customized feel. We hope players will enjoy this new design.”
There are several games that will be made available by a variety of developers. These include games from major franchises such as Resident Evil, Horizon, Star Wars, and The Walking Dead.
