New PlayStation VR hardware model incoming
New VR unit hardware revision will include stereo headphones integration, streamlined connection cable
Sony has announced that a new hardware revision of the PlayStation VR unit is coming soon.
The new version, model number CUH-ZVR2, features an updated design that enables the stereo headphone cables to be integrated with the VR headset and a slimmer, streamlined connection cable. There’s also an updated Processor Unit that supports HDR pass through, enabling users to enjoy HDR-compatible PS4 content on a TV without having to disconnect the Processor Unit in between the TV and the PS4 system. This function can be used only when the VR headset is turned off.
The packaging for PlayStation VR will change slightly when the new model hits stores. To differentiate, look for the model number printed on the box. The previous PS VR’s model number is CUH-ZVR1, and the new PS VR’s model number is CUH-ZVR2. Also, the product image on the packaging will be updated to show changes on the new model, like the integrated headphones on the VR headset.
The pricing of the PS VR bundles will remain the same, and of course all games will remain compatible. The exact launch date in North America will be confirmed soon.
PlayStation VR is a virtual reality system for PlayStation 4 that was first launched in October of 2016. Over 100 games have been developed for the unit.
