Newscast: Who will buy PlayStation VR2‪?‬ Eurogamer Podcasts

    • Video Games

This week on the Eurogamer Newscast, we react to Sony's eye-watering announcement of its PlayStation VR2 pricing, alongside Eurogamer's resident VR superfan and advocate Ian Higton as a special guest.
The PSVR2 is a high-end device and it was never going to be cheap, but its £530 cost (£570 if you actually also want something to play) have placed it out of reach for many console players. Of the many headset options available, Sony's was expected to be the most likely to attract a wider audience and grow the budding VR scene. But with that price, and a line-up of games you can mostly play elsewhere?
Join me, Ian, Ed Nightingale and Ishraq Subhan, as we discuss why the headset costs so much, what Sony could do to sweeten the deal, and what future we think PSVR2 now has at that price point.
