The PSVR 2 launched on February 22nd, and our review of the headset had it labelled the future of gaming. If that’s anything to go by, finding out where exactly to pick it up is going to be extremely important.

The headset has allegedly beaten a gaming PC with an RTX 3090 Ti in terms of performance and experience. If you’re looking to dip your feet into VR, the PSVR 2 seems the much better option over the expensive Meta Quest Pro.

The launch of the PSVR 2 was mainly localised to PlayStation’s own store. Unfortunately, it wasn’t available through other main-stream retailers. Amazon and Best Buy, for example, haven’t seen the product yet, though it will surely hit their shelves as the DualSense Edge recently did.

If the above sounds good to you, and the PSVR 2 games list gets you as excited as us, then you’re going to want to know where to buy the PSVR 2, though you might also be interested in our PSVR 2 review.

Expected retailers of the PSVR 2

We don’t yet have any confirmed information to gauge which retailers will be stocking the PSVR 2 once PlayStation finally let it hit retail shelves, though using information from the original PSVR’s release, we can make some educated predictions that we think are could prove accurate.

If you’re trying to grab a PSVR 2 now, you’re going to want to head on over to the PlayStation site.

Is the PSVR 2 on Best Buy & Amazon?

At the moment, no.

As we saw with the launch of the DualSense Edge, which we recently had the chance to review, Sony seem to be withholding their products from popular retailers for a few weeks, encouraging people to buy through them. It’s possible that we see this with the PSVR 2, which could mean Sony are going to be your only option on release.

The other retailers will likely stock the PSVR 2 a few months after the launch.

How to pre order the PSVR 2?

If you’re looking for a PSVR 2 pre-order, the easiest way to go about this is to head on over to the PlayStation website as they are taking pre-orders there.

Currently, at the time of writing, you cannot pre-order the PSVR 2 from Amazon or Best Buy, as mentioned before, this is due to Sony’s preference for a hard-launch via their site, and then a soft-launch down the line via other retailers.

When do PSVR 2 pre orders ship?

PSVR 2 pre orders are likely to ship slightly before the release date, which is February 22nd. In fact, PlayStation have posted a notice on their website stating that the headset will deliver between February 22nd – 28th, 2023.

As shown above, you can clearly see the dates that the PSVR 2 will ship between, meaning you know exactly when your PSVR 2 will arrive.

At the current moment, there are no pre-order bonuses.

Is the PSVR discontinued?

It doesn’t look like the PSVR has been discontinued following the reveal of the PSVR 2. It is likely that production will slow down to make room for the PSVR 2, though at some point following the new headset’s release we could see the old being edged out of production fully.
