CNET’s Scott Stein called the new Meta Quest 3 the “best VR headset for the moment,” but the next-gen PSVR 2 is still our favorite high-end headset for console users. It’s an excellent way to upgrade your PlayStation 5, and can open up a whole new world of exciting and immersive VR games to explore. This headset originally hit shelves back in February, and deals have been pretty rare since then. But we’ve scoured the web to bring you just about the only way to score some savings at the moment. We’ll continue to update this page as more discounts become available, so be sure to check back often.
How much does a PlayStation VR 2 cost?
Sony’s PSVR 2 retails for $550. The set includes the headset itself, as well as two PSVR 2 Sense controllers.
Does the PlayStation VR 2 require a PS5?
Yes, you will need to own a PS5 in order to set up and use the PlayStation VR2 headset. The PSVR 2 isn’t a stand-alone, self-contained headset like Meta’s Quest 3 or Quest Pro: It has to be tethered to Sony’s latest-gen console. Fortunately, it’s gotten a lot easier to get your hands on a PS5, which is currently available at Sony, Amazon and Best Buy.
Best PlayStation VR 2 deals
During its initial preorder phase, Sony’s next-gen headset could be reserved on an invite-only basis via PlayStation’s online store for those based in the US, UK, France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. The invite requirement was soon dropped, and now anyone with a PlayStation account can place a PSVR 2 order for $550, or snag one at most major retailers. It can also be bundled with Horizon Call of the Mountain for $600 — a saving of $10 versus buying the headset and game separately.
For a while, you could only purchase the PSVR 2 through Sony directly, but you’ll now find it in stock at most major retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, Target and GameStop. And thankfully, it looks like getting your hands on one won’t be nearly as difficult as the PlayStation 5 when it first hit shelves.
