Sony Unveils PlayStation VR2 Headset in India, but It Comes with a Hefty Price Tag

The PlayStation VR2 from Sony boasts 4K resolution per eye and incorporates four cameras for tracking eye movements. Unlike Meta’s recent standalone device, it requires a connection to a PlayStation 5 for functionality.

Almost twelve months after its global debut, Sony is launching the second-generation Virtual Reality headset, the PlayStation VR2, in India. Boasting a 4K HDR resolution (2000×2040 per eye) and an OLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, the latest headset offers a high-quality visual experience.

Similar to its predecessor, the PS VR2 features an adjustable headset band to customize the fit and a new lens adjustment dial for improved comfort. It also includes vibration feedback and advanced haptics for controllers.

In addition, Sony has introduced a lens adjustment dial for optimal viewing, a 110-degree field of view, foveated rendering, and eye-tracking technology to reduce the rendering workload by adjusting image quality outside the user’s direct line of sight. The PS VR2 is equipped with four tracking cameras and a passthrough mode allowing users to observe their surroundings, though it requires a PlayStation 5 for connectivity via a USB Type-C port.

Available for purchase on e-commerce platforms like Amazon, Reliance Digital, Croma, and ShopAtSC, the PlayStation VR2 comes with a price tag of Rs 57,990, surpassing the cost of the PlayStation 5 itself.

For enthusiasts, there’s the option to choose the Horizon Call of the Mountain bundle, which includes the latest VR Game along with the headset, priced at Rs 61,999.
