Sony has announced the price, two bundles, accessories, and new titles for the PlayStation VR2 launch on February 22.

The basic bundle will cost $549.99. It comes with the headset, two PlayStation VR2 Sense controllers, and stereo headphones.

If you want to play anything right away, the PlayStation VR2 Horizon Call of the Mountain combo is for you. This version costs $599.99 and includes a digital voucher for the first-person Horizon spin-off in addition to everything else in the normal bundle.

Want to charge your controllers without taking up your PS5's USB ports? Take a look at the PlayStation VR2 Sense controller charging station. For $49.99, this standalone dock refreshes your VR gamepads by just clicking them into the base without the need to connect to a console.
