You can now sign up to receive an invitation to pre-order PlayStation VR 2 on PlayStation Direct. To register, you need to sign in or create a PSN ID. Once registered, you will be notified by email if you are selected. To be clear, simply signing up for a pre-order invite doesn’t guarantee you’ll be able to pre-order via PlayStation Direct. The system resembles the old method of restocking the PS5 at PS Direct. You can express your interest in pre-ordering and then hopefully PlayStation will send you an offer.
PlayStation VR 2 pre-orders
PSVR 2 pre-orders go live on November 15, so be sure to sign up ASAP if you’re interested. PlayStation Direct will be the only retailer taking pre-orders for customers located in the US, UK, Belgium, Germany, France, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. If you’re not located in one of these countries, you may still have a chance to pre-order on November 15. Unspecified retailers outside of those countries will also open pre-orders on November 15.
PlayStation VR 2 releases on February 22 and costs $550. You get the headset and a pair of the new wireless Sense controllers. Alternatively, you can pick up a bundle that comes with the headset, controllers, and a copy of Horizon Call of the Mountain for $600.
Considering the PS5 continues to have inventory issues two years after launch, it’s a safe bet the PSVR 2 will be in short supply as well. As a reminder, you need a PS5 or PS5 Digital to use the PSVR 2.
