Rubbing your Virtual Eyes
Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced a launch date for its long-awaited PlayStation VR2 hardware (PSVR2) — The PS5 exclusive technology will launch globally February 22, 2023, priced at $550 USD / £530 GBP / €600. The set includes a PSVR2 headset, controllers, and stereo headphones.
Alternately, a Horizon: Call of the Mountain bundle will include the above set complete with a download code for an additional $50/£40/€50. Developed by Firesprite and Guerilla Games, Call of the Mountain is, as you would expect, a VR adventure set within the beautiful, but highly hazardous, futureworld explored in acclaimed adventures Horizon Zero Dawn (2017) and Horizon Forbidden West (2022). The PSVR2 system will have its own library of titles and is not compatible with previous PSVR releases.
If you’re interested in picking up the flashy new technology which, to my knowledge, doesn’t play Dactyl Nightmare, then pre-orders go live on the official PlayStation Direct store on November 15. SIE hints that not all orders will necessarily be served on launch day, with kits rolling out throughout the last week of February and into early March. For more details, visit the official PlayStation Blog.
These prices put the PS5 and PSVR2 kit somewhere in the region of $1000/£1000. I had some college.
PlayStation VR2 launches worldwide on February 22, 2023.
