Sony Confirms They are Working On PC Support For PSVR2

/ 2 months ago

In the past few years, Sony has began to embrace the idea of PC and has been porting some of their most popular PlayStation exclusive titles over to PC including The Last of Us, Horizon Zero Dawn, Spider-Man, and God of War just to name a few. It’s been a nice change as there’s a big market for Sony here that they’ve been ignoring for a while. It seems though that Sony wishes to take this further by implementing PC support for their PSVR 2 VR headset.

PSVR 2 PC Support

Yesterday Sony published a new blog post which focused on PlayStation 2 VR celebrating it’s year anniversary and looking back on the 40+ games available for the headset and looking forwards at upcoming titles such as Metro Awakening and Legendary Tales. It’s been a good year for Sony and they aim to make it better by allowing PSVR2 players to access additional games on PC.

“we’re pleased to share that we are currently testing the ability for PS VR2 players to access additional games on PC to offer even more game variety in addition to the PS VR2 titles available through PS5. We hope to make this support available in 2024, so stay tuned for more updates.”

This is brilliant news for owners of the PSVR 2, as if they also happen to own a PC but not a PC VR headset from the likes of Meta, HTC, or Valve, they won’t need to spend the extra cash and can just make use of their existing PSVR 2 headset. I like this direction Sony is taking and it likely stems from Microsoft’s increased parity between Xbox and PC. Funnily though Sony is still ahead of them simply by offering upgradable NVMe storage rather than proprietary expansion cards.

Currently there are no exact dates on this support nor any further details on whether it can work standalone or if it will still require a PS5 to work.

About PSVR 2

The PSVR 2 is an impressive bit of VR kit, it features an OLED display with a panel resolution of 2000 x 2040 per eye as well as refresh rates of 90Hz and 120Hz, and an FOV of approximately 110 degrees. Similar to the Meta/Oculus Quest, it doesn’t make use of base stations and includes a Six-axis motion sensing system and an IR proximity sensor, that utilise four embedded cameras and an IR camera for eye tracking.

The VR2 Sense controller takes a lot of its feature set from the PS5 controller including the still very impressive haptic feedback.

The PSVR 2 is available at the store for a price of £529.99, there is also a bundle which includes Horizon Call of the Mountain for £569.99.
