PSVR 2 pre-orders go live today
While at some point in the future there may or may not be a chance to pre-order PlayStation VR 2 at other retailers like Amazon, Walmart, GameStop, and elsewhere, Sony has already stated today’s presale event will be exclusively limited to PlayStation’s online store at direct.playstation.com.
It launched the pre-registration process earlier this month when the PSVR 2 release date and price were unveiled, so it’s unclear whether or not those folks will just be getting first dibs here or not. Despite the fact that secured pre-order windows have already been sent out to those that registered, there may be a chance to score a pre-order directly from PlayStation today anyway as “registering does not guarantee that you will receive an invite.”
Here’s a quick breakdown of the first two PSVR 2 configurations Sony has announced thus far:
