As it seeks to keep the PlayStation 5’s sales running along at record levels, PlayStation has started its summer advertising campaigns with something of a crossover between its entertainment and gaming divisions and two of its biggest franchises: Gran Turismo 7 and The Last of Us.
The PlayStation VR2 is finally here, but for the cost, you may be wondering if it’s something you are going to use a few times and then set to the side, or is it actually a revolutionary device that will change the way you play Gran Turismo forever?

The official PlayStation Japan YouTube channel posted a new video early this morning, showing off new footage of Gran Turismo 7 running on the PlayStation VR 2 headset.
