Sony will open pre-orders for the PSVR 2 soon. The upcoming wearable, which is aimed at gaming, will be released sometime in 2023, but you can pre-order it now on November 15.
Supplies for this device will run out soon, so hurry up until supplies run out for PSVR 2.
PSVR 2 preorder
According to Android Central, Sony’s latest VR2 headset will sell out faster than expected. Usually, the company will initially distribute it to selected retailers in the country before reaching the small retailers.
However, the PSVR 2 headset will be exclusively accessible through Sony’s official website, according to the sources. This would mean that retailers are not involved in the initial sale of this VR headset.
If Sony sees success in selling the first batch of this wearable, the other retailers may be able to enter the sales phase.
However, if sales are low, pre-orders may be affected. Somehow Sony may have had second thoughts when negotiating the pre-order sale with the other retailers.
In recent years, Sony has followed the same practice, selling the PS5 exclusively through its website. That said, it’s testing the waters to see if it’ll be instantly patronized by the public upon its first launch.
Where to book in the US
The same report from Android Central listed the following stores that you can check for PSVR 2 pre-orders.
- PlayStation: by invitation only
- Best Buy
- B&H’s photo
Where to book in the UK
- PlayStation store
- John Lewis
- Amazon UK
At this time, we have no idea about the exact timing of pre-orders for the PSVR2. However, if you stay up late, you may see it arrive around 3 a.m. PT. If it doesn’t happen in the early morning, Sony might roll out the slots in the afternoon.
Like PS5, the PSVR 2 is expected to come with bundles. In addition, Sony could be preparing to combine the wearable with other accessories and games, including a gaming headset and controller.
