Sony's PSVR2 roadmap anticipates significantly greater popularity than its predecessor, which took eight months to sell a million units.

The most popular VR headset today, Meta's Quest 2, shipped 2.8 million units in its first quarter of availability.

Game creators remain cautious of the VR segment due to its low market penetration, particularly in Sony's home country of Japan.

Meta's Quest 2 has shipped 17 million units and is hailed as the sector's high water mark, yet it pales in contrast to other console, smartphone, and PC games.

Sony's suppliers and partners are unsure how long the business would be able to keep up its fast-paced production plan after launch.
