If you didn’t manage to get a pre-order for Sony’s PlayStation VR2 headset, you’re in luck. The PlayStation Direct store no longer requires an invite to place a PS VR2 pre-order.
You won’t necessarily have to wait months to get your hands on the next-gen PS5 headset either, because The edge points out. As it stands, Sony plans to ship the device between its February 22 launch date and February 28.
The first wave of pre-orders required potential PS VR2 owners to show interest and hope to receive an invite from Sony. Now you can reserve one and at least give yourself the chance to pick up the headset in February, especially since it’s unclear how much stock Sony will have at launch. You can always cancel a pre-order if you change your mind.
You’ll have to dig deep into your pocket to buy a PS VR2. The headset costs $550 and you’ll need a PS5 to use it. Games from the original PS VR aren’t compatible with the latest model either, so you’ll have to build a new library of games or hope the developers offer free PS VR2 upgrades. Polyarc has just confirmed that it is bringing Mousse and Moss: Book II to PS VR2, while Sony positions Guerrilla Games’ Horizon Call of the Mountaina Horizon Zero Dawn and west forbidden Spin-off VR, as a flagship launch title.
