PSVR 2 Production Cut

Sony Denies PSVR 2 Production Numbers Were Cut Following Disappointing Pre-Orders

Sony has denied they have cut production numbers of the PSVR 2 headset ready for its launch in February. This statement follows earlier reports that shipment forecasts had been halved due to a disappointing number of PSVR 2 pre-orders, primarily because of its high cost and slow uptake of VR technology.

Sony is “seeing enthusiasm” for the upcoming PSVR 2 launch

Sony aimed to produce 2 million headsets ready for launch on February 22, 2023, and the company denied that this has changed when questioned by They went on to say they are “seeing enthusiasm from PlayStation fans for the upcoming launch, which includes more than 30 titles such as Gran Turismo 7, Horizon Call of the Mountain, and Resident Evil Village.”

Earlier reports from Bloomberg claimed Sony had cut production so that just one million PSVR 2 headsets would be ready for launch following a disappointing number of pre-orders. Sony had apparently then revised their figures to sell 1.5 million units between April 2023 and March 2024. The reason for the changed forecast was believed to be the high cost of the headset, which costs significantly more than the PS5 console itself. There has also been a slower uptake of VR technology in general. Sony had initially refused to comment on the claims but has seemingly changed its mind.
