This week Sony announced the release date and the hefty price tag of its new virtual reality headset, the PlayStation VR2.
As a dedicated helmet-head, I figured that Sony would be aiming for a price point somewhere around that of a PS5 so the figures it quoted as pre-order prices didn’t shock me too much. I’ve gone hands-on with the PSVR 2 in the past, so I know that it’s a high quality piece of kit and, with the addition of the Sense controllers in the package, that lofty price seemed about right to me.
What didn’t sit too well with me however, was the fact that the base PSVR 2 bundle seems to come with literally no games. At the time of writing this, Sony hasn’t mentioned anything about a PlayStation VR Worlds style demo disc or download code being included in the packaging for the base bundle like it was for the original PSVR. With the understandable but disappointing lack of backwards compatibility for the original PSVR library, this can only be seen as a negative to any potential new adopters of the tech.
