PS VR2 enters production, Sony aims for better sales than the original PSVR



What you need to know

  • According to a report, Sony has begun production of the PlayStation VR2 as of September 2022.
  • The company looks to produce around 2 million units by March 2023, signaling a late Winter/Early Spring release for the upcoming premium VR headset.
  • The original PSVR sold 1 million units in its first year, showing that Sony expects PS VR2 to sell better.

The original PSVR was enough of a success for Sony to create a second-generation headset in the PlayStation VR2. Given that, it looks like the company is planning for its next-generation VR headset to do even better, and, from the looks of things, PS VR2 could launch around March 2023.

This is according to a report from Bloomberg (opens in new tab) that shows the PS VR2 (opens in new tab) has already entered production and that Sony is aiming to make 2 million units by March 2023. Now that it’s finally fairly easy to buy a PS5 (opens in new tab), it’s likely that price is the only real deciding factor consumers will have to make when the headset eventually releases. We don’t know the price yet, but it’s expected to retail for at least $400 when it launches, just as the original PSVR did.
