Ozzy Osbourne has teamed up with PlayStation for VR2 launch, sharing a video about the collaboration that was posted on Ozzy’s social media accounts, which PlayStation’s channels then shared globally. The collaboration features music from Osbourne’s Grammy-winning 2022 Patient Number 9 album, and in the video Osbourne is seen testing out PlayStation VR2. PlayStation VR2 is Sony Interactive Entertainment’s next-generation virtual reality headset that works with the PlayStation 5 (PS5) console. Says Ozzy: “The new PlayStation VR2 is f***ing amazing. I was having such a great time playing while filming the commercial that I didn’t want to leave. I told them they got to get me one when they’re released.”
The collaboration follows recent news that Osbourne has retired from touring due to health issues. Osbourne was scheduled to hit Europe for his No More Tours 2 with Judas Priest in January 2022, after being postponed numerous times since its initially planned 2019 run, but pushed it back by another year and a half due to the pandemic. On January 31st, Osbourne officially canceled the No More Tours 2.
