Step into a new reality at Best Buy, where the PlayStation VR2 is now available to pre-order in Canada.

NOTE: a PlayStation 5 console is required to use PlayStation VR2 and the device is not backwards-compatible with the PlayStation 4.

Originally unveiled in February 2022, the PlayStation VR2 is the next-generation virtual reality headset from PlayStation and their successor to the PlayStation VR. PS VR2 was designed for the PlayStation 5 and features several high-performance improvements including OLED lenses, headset feedback, eye tracking, 3D audio and adaptive triggers on the Sense controllers.

Over 20 compatible games will be available at launch, including Horizon Call of the Mountain and Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy's Edge, along with VR favourites like Beat Saber and Resident Evil Village.

Pre-orders are scheduled to ship on February 22 and all PlayStation VR2 listings qualify for free shipping from Best Buy.


Posted October 25: Pre-Order the PlayStation 5 DualSense Edge Controller in Canada

Level up your controller at Best Buy, where the new PlayStation 5 DualSense Edge Wireless Controller is now available to pre-order in Canada.

Originally unveiled on August 23, the DualSense Edge is a new high-performance wireless controller designed by Sony for the PS5, with premium features including re-mappable controls, multiple profiles and interchangeable stick caps. The DualSense Edge retains the same shape as the standard DualSense controller and comes with six stick caps and four back buttons to customize the feel of the controller, along with a braided USB-C cable and carrying case.

For reference, the $269.99 price is much higher than the generic DualSense Wireless Controller, as Sony is positioning the DualSense Edge as a direct competitor to Microsoft's Xbox Elite Series 2 Wireless Controller. In addition, pre-orders are available from other retailers like Amazon.ca and GameStop, but Best Buy has the better track record for Day One deliveries.

Pre-orders are scheduled to ship on January 26, 2023 and the PlayStation 5 DualSense Edge Wireless Controller qualifies for free shipping from Best Buy.

    • Best bet for psvr2 is to go the SDM route. Provided you have points. Do a redemption. 200 = 300
      Then double down (fingers crossed) on a 20x day. If you get offer.

      That should bring price down to about 250-350.

      Reasonable.

      AND RFD effect.

      If you wanna dump it you can get your money back. Someone will take it for 250.

    • I hope they include a bunch of VR demos.
      Yes! I remember the current PSVR when I first tried it and all the demos to me were the most fun, the shark cage experience and the horror scene where you are tied up for example. I hope it comes with plenty of those types of experiences.

    • I wish the PSVR2 was compatible with all the original PSVR games.

      I loved my PSVR, but I feel like “been there, done that” with VR at this point.

      Also, it’s pricey!

    • The concept and early implementations of VR have been around for 75 years. Not 10.

      Even mainstream VR gaming systems and add ons have been around since the 1990s from Sega and Nintendo.

      VR has always been and always will be a fringe technology.

      Looking forward to VR1 bundles cleared out at $50 retail.
      I meant the modern era of VR. VR died off after its previous wave in the 1990s and then the hype returned with the Oculus Rift.

      As for it always being a fringe technology, I disagree 100%. Always is a very long time. People talk about it like 3d tvs, but anyone who has experienced good VR knows it is orders of magnitude more immersive and exciting.

      It’s just going to take more time for the tech to reach that sweet spot of price, specs, wirelenessness, and good content. Maybe that’s 10 years from now but it’s not never.

    • VR is definitely old. The Oculus Rift was released over 10 years ago. The problem is that it has never hit the sweet spot of price, performance/experience, and content that results in mass adoption. The Vive, Quest, and other headsets have generally been lacking in one way or another.

      I had high hopes that PSVR 2 would be the moment VR would hit mass adoption, but over the last month I feel like Sony has dropped the ball again. The price is clearly too high, and the content isn’t there. Where is the racing game, the pilot game, the Astrobot, the Alyx, the Beat Saber?

      All they needed was a couple of killer apps and to not price the peripheral more than the console, and I think it would have greatly rushed along mass adoption. But with low sales I think mass adoption of VR will get pushed back a few more years.

    • How do pre-orders typically work for being sold out? For example, does Amazon actually sell a certain number of preorders or are they taking as many as possible and just planning to send them out as they receive them?
      Preorders are never guaranteed. I've had plenty of preorders get cancelled on both Amazon and GameStop. But mostly that had to do with supply chain issues at the height of the pandemic.

      I don't know exactly how Amazon logistics operate on preorders, but they aren't the most reliable.

    • Sony have priced themselves out.
      $750!?
      In combination with a $650+ console.

      Not backwards compatible (at least yet), and only a very few, very meh games at release.

      So $1400 entry price just to have a go.
      Madness.

      I've not yet tried VR, but I'm really wanting to give it a try, but for me personally, it's a gamble, as I might just not enjoy it or use it as much.

      Quest 2 looks to be still the clear choice, though unfortunately they jacked up the price recently too.

      I only want to have a go at Beatsaber and the climbing one. Maybe Phasmaphobia too.
      Take a look back at this thread and you'll see many explanations as to why this is not overpriced (including compared to the last generation pricing).
      This isn't for people who just want to get into VR for cheap (the Quest would be better for that). This is mostly for people who already have a PS5 and want VR too and for that it's not overpriced at all, especially considering what you get.

    • Old and new is very relative.

      How much time did videogames, pc, cellphones, smart phones and watches take to become main stream?

      10 years is not that much inmho
      True, in the big scheme of things it’s not that long. I guess it just feels like VR has been on the verge of being the next big thing for a long time.

      My only concern is that if Sony decides the returns aren’t there this time around, they might shelve it the way MS did with the kinect.

    • VR is not old. Not *many* have bought it.

      This is very nichy. Few people are into VR because very have actually tried it. There is a huge difference of user base for regular ps5 and Vr users.

      It is a very expensive gadget, more expensive than the PS5.

      I really wanted to preorder it but the games are minimal and although I love Horizon it appears it is less than 10 hours. So here I would be spending 1k for a 10 h game.

    • I do not know what to take of the fact its STILL available to pre order everywhere.

      Cost aside, when something is good there is typically excitement attached to that. It has been almost non existant in terms of talk on this.

      I think sony is going to *really* have a tough time with this.

      not only is VR "old" in terms of curiosity of the tech ( almost everyone has tried it ), many of us have actually purchased hardware in the past such as PSVR1 or any of the meta devices. This is a double negative. No real excitement for the technology and the realization that for most people their hardware is collecting dust now.

      Furthermore, the optics of the extreme cost, lack of software and NO backwards compatibility ( the hell? ) will make adoption really low.

      I disagree that everyone has tried this - I suspect a lot of people haven't and also haven't tried a more modern VR platform (the technology is leaping ahead quickly each year, providing a differentiated experience from early sets). I think the big issue here is going to be software that gets people excited, and that's a challenge - with a small base the software will lose money if it's high-production, and without money-losing software the base won't grow enough to justify development.

      Twenty years from now I suspect VR will be a much bigger part of the fabric of life than it is now - it's on the path to be much nicer than a TV for solo passive viewing and it's far better for interactive media - but getting there will be a slow process. I don't know if this will push it or if it's still five years too early.

    • The Meta Quest Pro is like $2000 in Canada. So even with the PS5 and PSVR2, it's still cheaper, with better specs. Only thing you miss out on is the portability. But honestly, who's using these things outside of their homes?
      Honestly, every trip i took the Quest 2 with me stayed in the bag and never used. Lol

      So i agree, outside there is no use. But to be fair, I felt the difference being untethered from Rift S to Quest 2. So still making up my mind with the PSVR2.

      For a good stretch, I was using it for fitness. Beyond that, mostly getting together with family and friends to play a game. As a guy with young kids, it's hard to leave the house in the evenings, but I can jump into VR and connect with friends on there fairly easily.

      I do struggle to get motivated to play single-player games.

    • This is a pretty powerful headset. People who tried VR on the original or on a more dated headset are going to be pretty surprised by what this thing can do. It'll seem a lot more immersive and the world is likely going to seem a lot more real. The power of the console will also really let people push more advanced titles too, V1 was mostly small-scale tech demo type stuff, still fun but limited by the headset and console.

      We probably have one more generation after this for it to mature as a technology, when you're getting no pixelation or lag at all and the hardware can power high-fidelity realistic titles, but this is a big step forward and I'm excited to see what happens in the space.

    • Watching movies or playing games on a virtual screen I have zero interest in. The whole point of the headset is the vr experience. Vr hasn’t taken off like people had hoped so buying a headset locked to a closed platform with limited library is a bad investment.
      I play my 3D movies using a virtual screen since manufacturers have stopped producing 3D compatible TVs and I haven't the room to set up a 120" screen and laser projector like several friends of mine. Bad investment or not, it's still my decision to make and I have made it...

    • For those complaining about the price, when the PSVR originally launched it was $700 for the headset, camera and controllers (which this bundle includes), so this isn't outrageous by any means.
      We can blame inflation and exchange rates for the $50 difference.

    • Thanks for posting! Really hoping for 3D Blu-ray support and the ability to play on PC. I have serious doubts about either of those coming to fruition though. Pre-ordered regardless and will cancel if it doesn't seem to be worth it. Coming from a HP Reverb G2 so I am excited about the OLED.
      If it has 3d blu ray support Im going to have to buy a ps5. Lol
      The PS5 doesn't support 3D Blu-Rays
      Did the old PSVR have any multiplayer content? Thinking I should just get two and give one to a friend.
      Yeah it had some. Firewall: Zero Hour was supposed to be one of the best. Crisis Vrigade was a lot of fun multiplayer, and Arizona Sunshine was alright too.

      Of course - plenty of people use VR regularly, but the more avid users are on PC with an Index or other high-fidelity device. In my house, we use our Index more often than we use our PS4 Pro for gaming and immersive fun. PSVR gen1 was a fairly capable offering for the hardware and pricing limitations it came with, but PSVR2 for PS5 is a massive step forward in specs.
