According to Bloomberg, citing people familiar with Sony’s plans, the Japanese company plans to produce 2 million PlayStation VR2 headsets by March next year.
Mass production of the new VR headset began in September, with Sony facing no supply chain restrictions. After the release of the device early next year, production figures are likely to be adjusted depending on sales dynamics.
Sony itself predicts the PlayStation VR2 headset will be more popular than the PlayStation VR generation, which took eight months to hit 1 million units sold. The Quest 2 is currently the most popular VR headset, with 2.8 million units sold in the first quarter, according to IDC.
Sony has not yet announced the official release price of the PS VR2. According to sources, Sony is currently planning to start selling the headset in early 2023. It is worth noting that PS VR2 can only be used with the PlayStation 5 game console.
A spokesman for Sony Interactive Entertainment declined to comment.
