PlayStation VR2 Finally Debuts in India After 10 Months, Priced at Rs. 57,990


Sony’s state-of-the-art virtual reality headset, the PlayStation VR2, is now officially available in India, marking a nearly 10-month wait since its launch in the US. Priced at Rs. 57,990 for the visor and Sense controllers alone, the VR experience can also be acquired through the Horizon Call of the Mountain bundle, available at Rs. 61,999. However, there seems to be a shortage of stock among online retailers. As of now, Amazon and e2z Store are the only platforms with available stock, with the latter exclusively listing the base edition. Other reputable sites offer pre-booking options or the ability to receive email notifications upon availability.

The PS VR2 catalog is now open for purchase on the PlayStation Store, including the featured Horizon spin-off, priced at Rs. 3,999 for digital download. The bundle also includes a voucher for the game, accompanied by special cover art. In this immersive experience, players take on the role of Ryas, a former Shadow Carja warrior, navigating the central part of the Sundom to unravel a mystery. Leveraging advanced tribal skills such as archery and weapon crafting, players confront colossal beast-like machines. Despite the new narrative, encounters with series protagonist Aloy and other familiar characters add depth to the Horizon universe, which is set to expand with an upcoming sequel.

While the headset is currently available on Amazon at a limited-time 8 percent discount, bringing the price down to Rs. 54,990—equivalent to the Blu-ray-equipped PS5 console—the expectation is that it will soon be accessible through major retailers like Croma, Flipkart, Games the Shop, Reliance Digital, Shop at SC, and Vijay Sales.

While the PS VR2 launch is undoubtedly exciting for virtual reality enthusiasts, there have been inquiries online regarding the status of Spider-Man 2 Collector’s Edition orders in India. Players who pre-ordered the package in June are still awaiting delivery, with Sony reportedly delaying orders without providing an official statement on the matter through its social handles.

The PlayStation VR2 boasts a 4,000 x 2,040 OLED panel resolution (2000 x 2040 per eye) and operates at 90Hz or 120Hz refresh rates, ensuring a seamless gaming experience. The visor maintains a 110-degree field of view (FOV), equivalent to its predecessor, and features a see-through toggle, allowing users to view their surroundings without removing the headset. Unlike other contemporary VR systems, the PS VR2 eliminates the need for tracking cameras, providing hassle-free height adjustments. Additionally, the sensory feature utilizes motor vibrations to replicate sensations and tense situations from within the game.
