Previously the next-gen VR headset, which retails for $549.99 / €599.99 / £529.99, was only available on Sony’s PlayStation Direct site. “Check your local retailer for availability,” the company said on Thursday.
Last month, Sony’s CFO Hiroki Totoki was asked to evaluate PS VR2’s launch and what the company’s expectations for the hardware are going forward.
“We are very happy to launch VR2 on PS5,” he said. “VR1, we sold over five million units, and I think we have a good chance to exceed that amount with PlayStation VR2.”
Totoki went on to reference forecasts that the overall VR market could be one of the largest growth areas in the media and entertainment segment during the first half of this decade.
They claimed Sony’s shipment forecasts were cut from two million to one million units this quarter. In response, Sony issued a statement claiming it had “not cut PlayStation VR2 production numbers”.
