Sony is officially revealing the designated launch window for the Sony PlayStation VR2 2023. With a low-key Instagram post, and it’s coming relatively soon.
Fans of Sony’s PlayStation VR headset have long been looking forward to the successor to the original device, the PS VR2. Although there has been very little information about its release. The device received its first announcement a while ago. And those who had a chance to try the original are eager to put the new headset on the market as well.
Fortunately, this waiting game now has an end date in sight as the company is finally sharing some concrete information about the gadget. Sony’s Instagram account recently posted an official PlayStation VR2 release date announcement. Revealing that the headset will launch sometime in early 2023.
While VR has yet to enter mainstream gaming in a truly meaningful capacity. PlayStation is committed to quality PS VR experiences through and through. The company reiterated this commitment when PS VR2 was announced, describing its subsequent launch as a “strategic opportunity” for PlayStation. Now that the official PlayStation Instagram has announced the release window, it’s likely that Sony will make a big push toward VR to launch its headset towards the end of 2022.
Earlier this year, Sony revealed the PS VR2 user interface, which shows significant improvements compared to its immediate predecessor. The all-new See-Through View will allow players to easily and reliably see their surroundings without taking off their headphones. Users can also use their PS VR2 Sense controllers to define the boundaries of their gaming area, which should be extremely useful for gamers who may have limited space in their gaming rooms.
Sony’s New Headset
PS VR2 has specs very comparable to PS VR. Meanwhile, there can be improved HDR capabilities and rendering resolution. And there will be fewer cables to bother you while gaming. All of this will almost certainly come together to create a far better gaming experience in most ways. At the same time, it goes without saying that gaming will be what will make or break Sony’s new headset.
While the new PS VR can be expected to come with its own set of brand-new VR experiences. Some classic PS VR titles should also receive PS VR2 upgrades along the way. Sony has been remarkably tight-lipped about what the new headset will offer, but it’s almost certain that the company will show off more of its PlayStation VR2 games in the coming weeks and months.
The PlayStation VR2 will launch in early 2023.
