In some ways it feels like a repeat of the original PS VR launch back in 2016. That headset didn’t light the world on fire either coming out of the gate, and took six months to break a million sales. It eventually went on to sell 5 million headsets total. That’s a respectable number for a first attempt, but would be a disaster in a maturing market where Meta managed to sell 20 million Oculus Quest 2s.

It’s hard to see PS VR2 coming anywhere close to that without an early and dramatic price cut, or the reveal of a VR adaptation of a major Sony franchise that will be a headset exclusive. The current Horizon spin-off isn’t quite there, and it’s not even part of the monthly PS Plus subscription library yet.
