How and where to preorder Sony’s PS VR2 headset

Sony’s preorder routine is slightly different this time around.

Sony has now opened up the pre-order raffle for people interested in the PS VR2.

To preorder the PS VR2, you’ll have to head to Sony’s website and register for a chance to be invited. That means you’ll need an active PlayStation Network account before signing up.

Prices start at $549.99 in the US, and you can bundle it with a digital copy of Horizon Call of the Mountain for $599.99.

Sony’s PlayStation Direct store is currently the only place to get a PS VR2 preorder. You’ll need to sign into your account and register your interest first, as Sony set up an email-based queue.

Sony has implemented the same process that worked for PS5 orders. To get a preorder for a PS VR2, you must first register your interest to buy on Sony’s PlayStation Direct online store.

Successful applicants will get an email with a link to preorder the headset.

Sony says this is because of limited quantities and high demand, and they’re also limiting orders to one PS VR2 per PSN ID per household.

Sony uses PlayStation Direct for customers in the U.S., U.K., France, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, and Luxembourg. Other regions and retailers will have preorder availability, so we’ll update this post once we hear the details.

The thing is, being selected to preorder the PS VR2 is only half of the equation. The second-gen VR headset from Sony only works with a PS5 console.

Black Friday is nearly upon us, which might mean some bottomless deals on PS5 consoles and accessories. Here are some of the best current sales, and we’ll update these periodically.

The PS VR2 might be difficult to buy at launch

With Sony already implementing a queue for the chance to preorder the PS VR2, it looks like stock will be limited for launch. We recommend registering on Sony’s website if you want to be in with a chance.

Sony has said that select retailers will also have preorders in some countries. We have yet to see any details, but this post will get updated as soon as we do.
