It doesn’t seem to have been a big hit for . For a little more than a year, the company has halted production while it deals with a backlog of unsold inventory, according to .

The company is said to have produced over 2 million units. According to analysts at IDC, the company has sold around 1.7 million headsets in 2023. Perhaps most worryingly for Sony, sales appear to have slowed significantly over the year. Hardware sales often pick up before the holidays, but the fourth quarter was the slowest sales period ever for the PS VR2 per IDC — the firm says Sony sold just 325,200 units in those three months.

The lack of compelling games (or at least the perception that this was the case) didn’t help make the PS VR2 attractive to prospective buyers. In total, Sony has only released four VR experiences for the headset and is yet to announce other first-party games for the platform. Also recently, one of the few in-house developers who were making VR games. For games from the original PS VR headset, it may have also hurt the current model’s prospects.

In our review, senior editor Devindra Hardawar gave the PS VR2 a thumbs up, thinking that while it’s a great headset overall, the high price and doubts about long-term support are serious concerns. Also, the headset only works with PS5, but that could change.

Sony that it is testing official PC support for PS VR2 and hopes to release this later this year. This could potentially give the company a much larger customer base for those who are interested in the hardware but don’t want a PS5. As such, it may help him sell some of his stock. Another thing that would help is lowering the price. At $550, the PS VR2 costs more than the PS5, which is ridiculous.
