Sony has launched PlayStation VR2 globally yesterday, with no announcement regarding its Indian release. That said, the VR headset is seemingly coming to India through unofficial means. According to industry insider Rishi Alwani, PS VR2 will be available in the country this week via “grey and parallel imports.” The expected Indian price of PS VR2 via grey market is also revealed. Sony has not begun PS VR2 imports to India yet, and its unclear when the new VR headset will be officially available in the country.
No clue on official just yet. If I knew those dates, I’d have led with that.— 0xSkeptic | Cringe Connoisseur (@RishiAlwani) February 22, 2023
PS VR2 is expected to be available in Indian stores this week and they could be priced in the Rs 60,000 range. Since the import is unofficial, there would be no warranty from Sony for your purchase. Considering the lack of warranty and official presence of PS VR2 in the country, it would be better to skip the headset for now. It’s also quite possible that PS VR2 will be overpriced, since there is no official pricing yet. That said, it’s currently unknown when you can expect Sony to officially bring PS VR2 to India and how much it will cost.
The PS VR2 launch games line-up isn’t really that long, but many developers have announced games for the headset. Right now, PS VR2 players will be able to purchase Gran Turismo 7, Horizon Call of the Mountain, Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge, Resident Evil Village, Resident Evil 4, Pistol Whip VR, Cities VR – Enhanced Edition, and some others. These games will take advantage of PS VR2’s advanced tech and Sense controller to deliver an immersive experience. The headset features OLED panels with up to 120Hz refresh rate and Sense controller has haptic feedback and adaptive triggers from the DualSense controller.
