Sony’s PlayStation VR 2 could be a major disappointment, according to a new report.

The company has reduced its sales forecasts for the launch of the virtual reality headset, according to a new report from Bloomberg.

According to the report, the company was forced to halve its forecast for the number of headsets shipped from one million to two million.

For example, Sony expects to sell 1.5 million units between next April and March 2024. That would give him a relatively small market share.

The original PSVR headset – released for the PlayStation 4 in 2016 – also struggled and always had a relatively limited market share.

The console won’t arrive until February 22nd. However, pre-orders opened in November and Sony has encouraged customers to buy one in advance.

Unlike the PS5 base console, the PSVR2 is still widely available in stores with no waiting list or difficulty finding stock. This can be the result of increased supply and availability of hardware – but it can also be a sign of reduced demand.

Sony, for example, has said that the supply of PS5 consoles has finally increased and that the difficulty in getting them should finally be over.

The console is downright expensive: At $549, it’s more expensive than the PS5 itself, as well as other competitors from companies like HTC.

Even these competitors are struggling to sell their headsets. For example, Meta has been forced to drop the price of its Quest headset, and many companies have reduced their focus on virtual reality with layoffs imminent.

At the same time, the PSVR2 will compete with rumored headsets from a number of companies. For example, Apple plans to release a mixed reality headset later this year.
