When Do PS VR2 Pre-Orders Go Live?
Pre-orders for the PS VR2 go live at PlayStation Direct and other participating retailers on November 15. There will be further opportunities to pre-order the VR console in the lead-up to release.
PlayStation Direct invites offer customers exclusive access to purchase between November 15 at 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET – November 18 at 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET.
How to Buy PlayStation VR2 With Invite
Once you’ve got your invite from PlayStation, simply wait until exclusive access takes place, between November 15 at 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET – November 18 at 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET.
Then, click your unique Access Event button, found in your email invite, to purchase the PS VR2.
PlayStation VR2 Release Date
The PlayStation VR2 will release on February 22, 2023. This has been officially confirmed on the PlayStation Blog by Isabelle Tomatis, Vice President of Brand, Hardware and Peripherals at Sony Interactive Entertainment.
This comes almost 6 and a half years after the release of the original PSVR for PlayStation 4.
How Much Does PSVR 2 Cost?
The PS VR2 will retail at $549.99 / €599.99 / £529.99 / ¥74,980.
The PlayStation VR2 Horizon Call of the Mountain bundle will retail for $599.99 / €649.99 / £569.99 / ¥79,980. The Euro / Pound / Yen pricing each includes tax.
When Will PSVR 2 Pre-Order Invites Go Out?
PSVR 2 pre-order invites are reportedly already being sent out to select users. Invites will likely continue to dispatch until November 15, giving customers a chance to prepare to purchase the VR headset.
After that, there may be another wave of pre-orders in future, as Sony will likely restock the console before launch in February.
Where to Find Your PlayStation VR2 Invite
Your PlayStation VR2 pre-order invite will be sent directly to your email that’s associated with your PlayStation account.
However, only a limited number of invites will initially be sent out, and not everyone will be lucky enough to receive one.
Will Everyone That Signs Up Receive an Invite to Pre-Order PSVR2?
No, most likely not everyone that signs up for a pre-order invitation will get the chance to purchase the PS VR2. The virtual reality headsets are anticipated to be in extremely high demand and Sony is only just getting its PS5 stock levels under control 2 years on from release.
Can You Get a PS VR2 Headset Without an Invite?
Yes, you will be able to purchase a PlayStation VR2 headset without getting an email invite to pre-order. The invite system is just a guaranteed way to secure your new hardware on release day.
All PlayStation fans will be able to purchase a PS VR2 from a retailer of their choice once it officially goes on sale.
Where to Buy PlayStation VR 2 Headset
PlayStation VR2 will be available to pre-order at PlayStation Direct as well as a number of participating local retailers from November 15 onward. We will include direct links to all retailers below, as their store pages appear:
- PlayStation Direct
- Walmart (Confirmed for Nov 15)
Can You Pre-Order More Than One PS VR2?
No, you cannot pre-order more than one PS VR2 due to limited quantities and high demand. Sony will be limiting transactions of one headset per PSN ID per household.
This is likely an effort to prevent scalping of the highly-anticipated hardware.
Do You Need a PS5 to Use PSVR 2?
Yes, the PlayStation VR2 is only compatible with a PS5 or PS5 Digital Edition Console. It will not work on a PlayStation 4 or any other console, nor a PC.
For the initial setup, PS VR2 owners will need to use a DualSense controller and have their PS5 connected to a screen. PlayStation VR2 gameplay may not need a TV.
What’s Included In the PS VR2 Box?
The PlayStation VR2 box includes the new PS VR2 headset, two PS VR2 Sense controllers, a set of stereo headphones and a USB cable for pairing.
The PS VR2 Horizon Call of the Mountain bundle also comes with a PlayStation Store voucher code for Horizon’s new VR title.
Is the PSVR2 Wireless Or Does it Include Cables?
No, the PlayStation VR2 isn’t wireless like the Oculus Quest, but it only requires a single wire between the PS VR2 headset and the PS5 console.
The wire will be a single USB Type-C cable that plugs directly into the front port of the PS5, making it easy to setup.
What PS VR2 Bundles Are Available?
PlayStation VR fans can choose between the base PS VR2 product, which includes no pack-in extra, or the PS VR2 Horizon Call of the Mountain bundle.
The latter comes with a digital code to redeem for Horizon Call of the Mountain, a new VR experience from Firesprite and Guerrilla Games.
All PS5 VR Accessories & Where to Buy Them
The PlayStation VR2 accessories include:
- The new PS VR2 Sense Controllers
- The PlayStation VR2 Sense Controller Charging Station
These will be available to purchase separately from PlayStation Direct and at participating retailers once PSVR2 launches on February 22.
