With PSVR 2 launching this month all eyes are on the impact Sony can make with its VR device. Once again we're all asking, 'will VR take off?' The launch of PSVR 2 has seen a spate of tech brands teasing new hardware too, and Samsung has joined the fray and is set to launch a new VR headset.

At last week's Samsung Galaxy Unpacked we found out a new mixed reality headset is coming from the S23 Ultra manufacturer. This is big news, as Samsung was a leader with its Samsung Gear VR headset years ago but it never took off. Now the tide is turning when it comes to the popularity of VR; rumours of the new Apple VR headset continue and Meta is heavily pushing its Meta Quest 2 and Meta Quest Pro headsets – the biggest tech brands are heavily invested in VR.
