Sony is taking no prisoners with the launch of PSVR 2. In recent years the PlayStation making has shunned live events but next year's CES could be a biggie, with a live reveal and showcase for PlayStation VR 2.
Sony recently revealed its branding for CES 2023 and it includes a photo of a woman playing on a PSVR 2 (see below), so it's pretty likely the new virtual reality hardware is going to be the focus of a CES conference from Sony. We already know a lot about the new tech, read my 'PSVR 2: everything you need to know' feature for, well, everything we know.
We're at the end of 2022 so it can be hard to get in the mood for a January 2023 event, but put 5pm PT / 1am GMT on Wednesday, 4th / 5th January, 2023 in your diary because this conference could be a must-watch for PS5 owners, Sony fans and anyone interested in the nest new tech.
Sony has already revealed a lot about PSVR 2 and our list of the best upcoming PSVR 2 games reveals what you can play from day one, on 22 February when the headset launches. So what will Sony reveal? I'd expect a deep dive into the tech, with hands-on explanations of how some of the newer features work, such as PSVR 2's cinematic mode that will appeal to streamers.
It's worth considering that CES is a broad tech show and its appeal goes further than gamers, so I'd expect some deep tech dissections and perhaps a look at non-game uses for PSVR 2 – maybe a Web3 or social functionality.
If you're playing catch-up on all-things PlayStation, then read my PS5 review to see how the console performs two years from launch. And take a look at my round-up of the best PS5 games you can buy now, some of them, such as Resident Evil Village, will offer a free PSVR 2 mode.
