sony Sounds like it’s gearing up for final release virtual reality 2as it plans to produce 2 million units by March next year.
This comes from Bloomberg, who said people familiar with the situation provided them with the information. Mass production apparently started last month (September) w ithout any supply chain issues so far. It’s also important to note that production figures are subject to change based on the sales momentum of the headset when it launches early next year, no matter when.
According to the report, Sony’s PS VR 2 roadmap is expected to be more popular than the PS4’s original PS VR. The company is clearly hoping that big-name games like Horizon leveraging pre-established IP will attract players, even as the cost of living generally rises.
Early next year is Sony’s only commitment to the release date of the goggle case, and it doesn’t even have a price point, so we know how much to save/effectively complain about its cost. When the first headset came out, it cost £349, but given the cost of parts and impressive graphics fidelity, it’s safe to say the PS VR 2 will cost more at launch than its predecessor .
Impressions of PS VR 2 seem to be quite positive overall, with many finding the headset to be a big improvement over their first attempt.
VR never really took off as some had hoped, but due to the generally high cost of entry and the sense of isolation created by physical barriers to the outside world, it never took off in the same way as mainstream console or standard PC gaming .
