PlayStation VR2 owners will not, however, be able to play existing PlayStation VR games, after Sony revealed last month that the new headset will not be backwards compatible.
There is also a $599.99 / €649.99 / £569.99 bundle which includes a PlayStation Store voucher code for launch title Horizon Call of the Mountain.
A separate charging station for the headset, which allows players to charge the PS VR2 Sense controllers while keeping the PS5 console’s USB ports free, costs $49.99 / €49.99 / £39.99.
In a newly published PlayStation VR2 hands-on, we called the headset “a leap forward in comfortable, immersive VR”.
