PS VR2 currently costs $549.99, but when you get the Horizon Call of the Mountain bundle it’s $599.99. Either way, it’s priced higher than the PS5, and with more widespread availability in retail and online, the headset may see some discounts at some point in the future.
PS VR2 sales have been limited in the past month, with Sony selling just 270,000 headsets at the end of March, despite making 2 million units before its launch in February.
