Without a doubt, the PlayStation VR2 looks very promising. However, not everything is honey on flakes. Fans claim that its price is excessive. Also, we must remember that it will not be backward compatible, so it will be impossible to play the first PSVR titles in the new version.
But tell us, do you plan to buy this virtual reality device? Do you think it will meet expectations?
