PlayStation launches PC adapter for PS VR2 on August 7


PlayStation has officially unveiled its PC adapter for the PlayStation VR2. This will allow the formerly PS5-exclusive headset to play PC VR games. The adapter will launch on August 7, 2024 and will cost $59.99.

“Inspired by our passion to bring gamers even more content options, we’ve been working to enable access to additional games on PC, complementing the diverse PS VR2 games lineup available on PS5,” said Sony’s press release.

Sony specifically highlighted that the PlayStation VR2 adapter will be compatible with Steam’s library of VR games. According to SteamDB, there are over 6,000 VR titles available on Valve’s marketplace, including fan favorites like Half-Life: Alyx, Fallout 4 VR, and War Thunder.

The PlayStation VR2 PC adapter unlocks thousands of games for the formerly PS5-exclusive headset.

While this move will drastically expand the titles available, the PC experience for the PS VR2 won’t have all of the same features:

“PS VR2 was designed from the ground up specifically for PS5 – so you’ll notice that some key features, like 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.”
