PlayStation VR2the new virtual reality headset for PS5, could debut in stores during the first quarter of 2023therefore between January and March next year, according to information shared by the YouTube channel PSVR Without Parole based on its sources.
The insider in the past has unveiled in advance the official specifications of the viewer and the announcement of Horizon: Call of the Mountains before the official presentation of Sony which took place in early January, so it is a credible source and to be taken into consideration, always taking with the springs similar indiscretions pending official confirmation.
A launch period between January and March of 2023 seems all in all a plausible hypothesis, also considering the supply problems of semiconductors. However, the situation should stabilize in the second half of 2022, according to various industry experts including Lisa Su, the CEO of AMD, therefore a possible release date set in the first months of 2023 should allow Sony to reach the launch with a good number of PlayStation VR2 units and to stock stores regularly, as well as having a higher installed base of PS5. Several market analysts point to the end of 2022 with the launch period of the viewer, so we are not that far off.
Staying on the subject, last week Sony unveiled the first official images of the PlayStation VR2 and the Sense Controllers.
