Sony confirmed earlier this year that the PlayStation VR2 would be launching sometime in early 2023. A specific release date has now been announced. The next-gen virtual reality headset will launch worldwide on February 22, 2023.

The headset’s pricing has been revealed as well, and it’s fair to say that it’s a little steep. It will retail for $549.99 / €599.99 / £529.99 / ¥74,980. During the headset’s “initial launch phase”, players in the US, UK, France, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, and Luxembourg will only be able to pre-order it through PlayStation’s online store. Pre-orders are kicking off on November 15.

Sony has also unveiled a PSVR2 bundle that will also include launch title Horizon Call of the Mountain. Read more on that through here.

A new charging station for the PlayStation VR2’s new Sense controller has also been unveiled. It uses a click-in design that will allow players to charge their controllers without having to connect to a PS5 console. It will cost $49.99 / €49.99 / £39.99 / ¥5,480.

Earlier in the year, Sony announced that PlayStation VR2 will not be backward compatible with original PSVR titles- though reportedly, many developers are working on PSVR2 versions of their PSVR games.

A recent report claimed that Sony is aiming for an ambitious launch for the new virtual reality headset, with over 2 million units expected to be manufactured by March 2023. Read more on that through here.
