PlayStation VR2 Launch Targeted for End of 2022; Mix of AAA & Social Games Planned

PSVR2 Specs comparison

With yesterday’s surprise showing of the next-generation PlayStation VR headset dubbed the PlayStation VR2, Sony featured the tech specs of the device, as well as some of the key features players should expect from it once it’s available. However, two of the most important things that weren’t discussed, are its price point, and when people can actually buy it.

Over on Twitter, video game industry analyst Daniel Ahmad has shared more details from CES 2022. For one thing, Sony is targeting PlayStation VR2 to be released sometime near the “end of 2022,” provided supply chain issues do not arise and push it to 2023.

Ahmad also shared that Sony is aiming for a mix of AAA games + social gaming experiences as the key for the PSVR2’s success.

Regarding the first PSVR, it has sold through over six million units with an attach rate of of 5%, which is not bad at all.

If the PlayStation VR2 is indeed set for release later this year, that means we should get a price confirmation before it. Hopefully, that means before E3 or around it. Of course, given how hard it is to snag a PS5 still, I wouldn’t be surprised if the PSVR2 launch is once again done in waves and in a per-region basis.

Do you believe we’ll see the PSVR2 launch later this year? Or will it be for select territories only?
