The release of the PlayStation VR2 headset is about a week away, and Sony is hyping the release with something we all love — a teardown video. Two, to be precise!
The company has released two teardown videos — one for the headset and one for the new Sense controllers — ahead of the PS VR2 launch. The headset will officially launch on Wednesday, February 22nd so, in the meantime, we can all learn what makes the next-generation VR headset come to life.
In the first video, Takamasa Araki, a member of PlayStation’s Mechanical Design team, walks us through the different components of the headset itself. You can check out the video below:

The PlayStation VR2 is a major upgrade over the original PlayStation VR headset, offering improved tracking, higher resolution displays, and a more comfortable design. It also comes with a new VR controller which features haptic feedback and motion-sensing technology for a more immersive gaming experience.
The PlayStation VR2 is set to go on sale on February 22, 2023, and costs a whopping $549, $50 more than the cost of the disc version of the PS5. It’s still available for preorder as well, if you’re looking to take that leap.
