PlayStation VR2 Games Coming to PC – Get Ready

Sony’s PlayStation VR2 (PS VR2) officially hit the shelves on February 22, 2023, encompassing the PlayStation VR2 headset, PlayStation VR2 Sense controllers, and stereo headphones. Additionally, Sony offers a charging dock for the controllers as an optional purchase. Unlike its competitors, such as the Meta Quest series, the PlayStation VR2 is exclusively designed for the PlayStation 5 console and is not compatible with PCs.

Recently, on the PlayStation official blog, Sony Interactive Entertainment’s Content Communications Manager, Gillen McAllister, elaborated on some upcoming games and confirmed that Sony is exploring the capability of the PlayStation VR2 to access a broader array of games on PC. This expansion beyond PlayStation VR2’s current game library is anticipated to be rolled out later this year.

Indeed, since its launch, there has been speculation about the PlayStation VR2’s potential compatibility with PCs. Some driver developers have addressed this, noting Sony’s encryption of the USB signal to prevent the headset from functioning on PCs. Challenges such as the absence of readily available SLAM trackers for Windows and lack of controller support further complicate its adaptation for PC use. Although attempts, such as those by iVRy to hack this limitation, have been made, they have not been successful.

The PlayStation VR2 connects to the PlayStation 5 via USB-C and features a single-eye resolution of 2000×2040 on an OLED screen, with refresh rates of 90/120Hz. It offers a 4K HDR and a 110-degree field of view for a high-quality visual experience. The PlayStation VR2 Sense technology, integrating eye-tracking, haptic feedback on headphones, 3D audio, and PlayStation VR2 Sense controllers, creates a profound sense of immersion. Coupled with the PlayStation 5’s Tempest 3D AudioTech, it renders the sounds around the player more lifelike, providing a distinct gaming experience.
