Sony's PlayStation VR2 headset will arrive in "early 2023," according to the company's Twitter and Instagram posts. Sony has been leaking information about its next headset for the past few months, and now we have at least prepared for when we can use the hardware. 

Although the company announced the design details of the headphones earlier this year, it has yet to announce pricing. However, it promises a lot for  PlayStation VR2 - it will have a display that adds up to 4K resolution and can run at 90 or 120Hz, has a 110-degree field of view, and uses foveal rendering, which helps parts of the game. sharper image. than others to make things easier for computers (or, in this case,  PlayStation 5).

PlayStation VR2 will only work with PS5. Considering how difficult it has been for you to be able to use the console since its launch in November 2020, this seems like a bad idea. However, there are some indications that these issues can be fixed - the consoles no longer sold out as soon as Sony opened them up, and you can already buy a bundle that includes the Horizon Forbidden West in the box. few today. For now, it looks like when the headset launches, you can pick up the PS5 whenever you want. That said, there's still a chance that Sony could have a hard time with the inventory PS VR2, in which case PS5 availability could be only part of the equation for those trying to get into the game. play VR. 

PS VR2 may face fierce competition when it is released. Meta's premium "Project Cambria" helmet is coming later this year, however, as with
