Out Today: PSVR2 Brings Next-Gen VR to the Masses 1

Just over 13 months after its official unveiling, Sony's new PSVR2 headset has officially launched worldwide. Pre-orders weren't nearly as hard to come by as PS5, so the next-gen devices should be in plentiful supply should you decide to buy one today. However, the release still represents a big step in the right direction for the VR space, with Sony committing to supporting the peripheral in the coming years.

If you want to purchase one on launch day, PSVR2 costs £529.99/$549.99 for the base unit, or you can opt for a bundle with Horizon Call of the Mountain for an extra £40/$50. PlayStation Direct is where you'll want to order one from.

Throughout much of February, we've been getting our hands on PSVR2 and a selection of titles releasing alongside the headset. We published our PSVR2 review, where we described it as a truly next-gen product. "PSVR2 improves on all of the flaws of its predecessor, while still retaining the positives, like how comfortable it is to wear. The Japanese giant’s done an outstanding job streamlining the setup procedure and overhauling its input methods, incorporating many of the headline features from the DualSense to provide an unprecedentedly visceral experience."

Horizon Call of the Mountain is the device's killer app at launch, which we awarded a 7/10 in our review and praised its enjoyable platforming and use of the tech powering PSVR2. "[The game] is not without its flaws, but it’s hard to imagine a better showcase of PSVR2’s potential than this. The core climbing gameplay is impressively executed, and it evolves just enough over the course of the campaign to remain fulfilling."

Since that embargo lifted, Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy's Edge - Enhanced Edition and 2MD: VR Football Unleashed All-Star reviews have followed. We have only scratched the surface of the launch lineup, though, so much more PSVR2 coverage is on its way in the coming days and weeks. Below you'll find everything we've covered up until now.
