Sony pauses production of PlayStation VR2

Sony has reportedly paused production of its PlayStation VR2 headset, just months after its launch. The company has reportedly produced over 2 million units of the headset, but sales have been slow.

The PSVR2 was released in February 2023 for $549. It was met with positive reviews, but it has struggled to gain traction in the market. One of the main reasons for this is the lack of content. There are currently only a handful of major games available for the PSVR2, such as Horizon Call of the Mountain, Gran Turismo 7, and Resident Evil Village.

Another reason for the PSVR2’s slow sales is its price. At $549, it is more expensive than the PS5 itself. This makes it a tough sell for consumers, especially when there are other VR headsets on the market that are more affordable.

Sony is not the only company that is struggling with VR. Meta (formerly Facebook) has also had slow sales of its Quest 2 headset. Apple is rumored to be working on a VR headset, but it is not clear when it will be released or how much it will cost.

It remains to be seen whether Sony will be able to turn things around for the PSVR2. The company is reportedly working on new features for the headset, including PC support. However, it is not clear if these features will be enough to boost sales.
