Sony has finally launched its PlayStation VR2 in India, after a long delay since its global debut earlier this year. The PS VR2 is the second-generation virtual reality headset from the gaming giant, and it offers a significant upgrade over its predecessor in terms of display, tracking, and controller.
The PS VR2 is now available for purchase on Sony’s online shopping portal, ShopAtSc, where customers can choose between two options: a standard unit or a bundle with the exclusive VR game Horizon Call of the Mountain. The standard unit costs Rs 57,999, while the bundle is priced at Rs 61,999. These prices are considerably higher than the US price of $549.99 (approximately Rs 41,000), and also more expensive than the PS5 console itself, which sells for Rs 49,990 in India.
The PS VR2 boasts of a high-resolution OLED display with 2000 x 2040 pixels for each eye, resulting in a crisp and clear visual experience. The headset also supports a maximum frame rate of 120Hz, which ensures smooth and responsive gameplay. Moreover, the PS VR2 features IR cameras for eye tracking, which enables the headset to adjust the image based on the user’s gaze. Also, it allows for more natural and intuitive interactions in VR. The headset also has four cameras for tracking the movement of the PS VR2 Sense controller and the headset itself, which improves the accuracy and stability of the VR system.
The PS VR2 Sense controller is another highlight of the PS VR2. It is inspired by the PS5 DualSense controller, and it offers adaptive triggers and haptic feedback to create a more immersive and realistic sensation in VR. The controller also has a spherical design that fits comfortably in the hand and a ring of light that helps the headset track its position and orientation.
The PS VR2 also comes with a rich and diverse library of VR games, some of which are exclusive to the platform. Some of the notable titles include Gran Turismo 7, Horizon Call of the Mountain, Resident Evil Village VR, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 VR, Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge, and many more. These games showcase the potential and power of the PS VR2 and offer a variety of genres and experiences for VR enthusiasts.
The PS VR2 is compatible with the PS5 console and requires a single USB-C cable to connect. It also supports 3D audio and headset-based social screens, allowing users to enjoy a more immersive and social VR experience. The PS VR2 is expected to be in high demand in India, as it is one of the market’s most advanced and affordable VR systems.
