Sony did not specify which retailers will carry units. At the time of writing, only the UK retailer ShopTo confirmed that it will be stocking the headset from May 12, 2023. Other retailers in other countries have yet to confirm availability.
PSVR2 released on February 22, 2023, as an exclusive for the PS5. It’s an upgrade on the original PSVR featuring new controllers built around the features of the DualSense, such as adaptive triggers and haptic feedback. It also boasts stronger eye tracking and headset feedback, along with 3D audio.
PSVR2 launched with more than 30 compatible games within its first month, including the flagship launch title Horizon: Call of the Mountain. Other games compatible with the system include Tetris Effect, Kizuna AI and Gran Turismo 7. Resident Evil Village also received a free update alongside the release of PSVR2 that added a VR mode specific to the headset. PSVR2 is available for $549.99.
PSVR2 is now available for PS5, and will become available in local stores as retailers announce availability.
