Over the past few months, we’ve introduced PlayStation VR2 and provided previews of the next generation of VR gaming, which will let you escape to new worlds while feeling a revolutionary sense of immersion. Today, I’m very excited to announce that PlayStation VR2 will officially launch on February 22, 2023. The PlayStation VR2 Sense Controller Charging Station, designed specifically for the PS VR2 Sense controller, will also launch on the same day.
Here’s the PS VR2 lineup and recommended retail prices for each product. Availability in each country is subject to local import regulations.

Standalone software titles, including Horizon Call of the Mountain, will also be available for pre-order starting this month. More details will be provided at a later date.
During this initial launch phase of our next-gen headset, gamers in the US, UK, France, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg will initially be able to pre-order PlayStation VR2 only through PlayStation’s online store at direct.playstation.com. Pre-orders will begin on November 15, and players can start signing up for pre-orders starting today. Orders from direct.playstation.com for PlayStation VR2 headsets and bundles will ship throughout launch week.
In other markets, PlayStation VR2 will be sold at participating retailers, with pre-orders starting November 15. Information will be provided by participating local retailers in these regions.
PlayStation VR2 Sense technology includes key features that enable unique gaming experiences, such as headset feedback, eye tracking, 3D audio, as well as adaptive triggers and haptic feedback from PS VR2 Sense controllers. Paired with compatible games, they will captivate gamers’ senses and deliver an incredibly deep sense of immersion.
Additionally, with enhanced headset-based controller tracking and high-fidelity visuals in HDR 4000 x 2040 (2000 x 2040 per eye) video format, PS VR2 adds a true next-gen gaming experience for gamers.
We created the PS VR2 headset with comfort in mind, in a slightly thinner 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 personalized feel. We hope players will enjoy this new design.
Today, we’re also excited to reveal additional titles coming to PlayStation VR2, with further reveals of new titles currently in development for PlayStation VR2. Read our announcement here.
It’s exciting to see how game developers are leveraging the features of the PS VR2 headset to design the next generation of VR games. We’re expecting over 20 titles at launch, and we can’t wait until February when PS VR2 launches for players to try it out. We’ll have more details on our lineup of launch games in the future, so stay tuned.
