PlayStation VR2 getting PC adapter

Headset will be able to play SteamVR titles

Posted on

Sony has announced that the PlayStation VR2 headset will soon become usable on PC.

The headset currently requires a PS5 console to play a variety of VR games, but the company will launch a PC adapter that will allow the unit to also be used on PCs. The PlayStation VR2 PC adapter will be priced at $59.99 USD and release on August 7. Players will also need a commercially available DisplayPort cable (sold separately) that is compatible with DisplayPort 1.4, as well as a Steam account and a PC that meets the minimum requirements.

Operating system Windows 10 64-bit / Windows 11 64-bit
Processor Intel Core i5-7600 / AMD Ryzen 3 3100 (Zen 2 or later architecture is required)
RAM / memory 8 GB or more
GPU / graphics card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 or later (Turing or later architecture is required)
NVIDIA RTX series
AMD Radeon RX 5500XT or later / AMD Radeon RX 6500XT or later
(For the best performance, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 or later or AMD Radeon RX 6600XT or later are recommended)
DisplayPort DisplayPort 1.4 (must have a standard DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort output port)
USB Direct connection only
Bluetooth Bluetooth 4.0 or later

Players will have access to buy and play Steam’s expansive library of thousands of VR games, including fan favorites like Half-Life: Alyx, Fallout 4 VR, and War Thunder. You won't be able to play PS5 PSVR2 games on PC, as expected. HDR, headset feedback, eye tracking, adaptive triggers, and haptic feedback (other than rumble), are not available when playing on PC. However, other high-fidelity and sensory immersion features of PS VR2 are supported, including 4K visuals (2000 x 2040 per eye), 110-degree field of view, finger touch detection, and see-through view, as well as foveated rendering (without eye tracking) and 3D Audio in supported games.

Currently, gamers in select regions can get $100 off PS VR2 and the PS VR2 Horizon Call of the Mountain Bundle (for PS5) until June 12.
