It’s been six years since Sony released the PlayStation VR accessory, bringing support for virtual reality games to PlayStation game consoles. At the time its $399 price tag was very competitive, and its specs weren’t too bad by 2016 standards.

Now Sony is getting ready to launch a 2nd-gen model featuring a higher-quality display and more comfortable design. The price though? That’s a lot less competitive than it used to be. Not only is the Sony PlayStation VR2 going to cost $150 more than the first-gen model (inflation is a thing, after all), but it will be competing with cheaper hardware from competitors.

Here’s a roundup of recent tech news from around the web.

  1. They wanted to raise the price to match their recently PS5 raise, as people will buy it anyways, so it does not matter 🙂
