PlayStation is a video game brand consisting of a series of 5 consoles, two handhelds, a smartphone, an online service, multiple magazines, and a media center. The brand is currently a division of Sony and produced by Sony. Their first-ever PlayStation was back in late 1994, while the latest PlayStation 5 was released in 2020.
They have achieved worldwide popularity throughout their lifetime and have some of the most-selling consoles worldwide. Their original console series was the first of its time and had shipped over 100 million units in just under a decade.
The PS2, also known as the successor, was released later in 2000 and is the best-selling home console, having reached over 155 million units sold by December 31st, 2012. PS3 was released in 2006 and sold over 84 million units by March 2017. PS4 was released in 2013, sold a million units in just a day, and became the fastest-selling console in history.
PlayStation VR was released in 2016 and is functional with PS4 and compatible with PS5 via backward compatibility using a USB. The USB is shipped for free to anyone who purchased PlayStation VR from Sony.
There are no PS5 games announced for PlayStation VR. The PlayStation VR can output a picture to the VR Headset and a TV simultaneously; The TV mostly mirrors the image or has a different POV for Co-Op or competitive gameplay. PlayStation VR also works with the standard DualShock 4 controller, the PS Move controllers, and the PlayStation VR Aim controller.
PlayStation VR 2 is the new upcoming console for PlayStation VR, which is set to be compatible exclusively with PS5. Although it follows the footsteps of its predecessor, we can expect many new things coming from it. It was said to launch in late 2022, but due to issues in the supply chain, we might see it delayed further. That does not mean we won’t receive any news regarding it.
According to Jeff Grubb, we might see it released in late 2022, or early 2023, despite the supply chain issues, and he further added that he had heard from numerous sources the “rumbling” that there will be a lot more news regarding PlayStation VR 2 coming very soon.
Jeff Grubb is a certified gaming journalist, who has access to so much content before it’s even announced. Many of his leaks have been confirmed in the past, which means that we might see this happening soon as well.
However, since we are talking about PlayStation, their definition of soon is different from ours, but if it’s Jeff assuring that it will come soon, we can expect it to happen either later this year, or in the State of Play, where they might announce further details. Jeff did mention that it will likely be a “PSVR Showcase” which is practically the same for us.
During the State of Play, PlayStation provides details, announces, and showcases some of its latest news, updates, and reveals. A perfect spotlight for PlayStation VR 2 news. Aside from that, there is nothing else we can confirm, so all we can do is wait for further announcements from PlayStation itself. If you have any other questions, do let us know!
