Sony reveals their PlayStation VR2 Adapter for PC

Sony’s PlayStation VR2 headset will soon support gaming PCs

On August 7th, Sony will be releasing their PlayStation VR2 adapter for PC. This will allow PSVR2 headset owners to access thousands of SteamVR games using compatible gaming PCs.

Sony claims that this move will give PSVR2 users access to more content options. For PC gamers, this adapter will give gamers another high-end VR headset option. The adapter will cost $59.99/€59.99/£49.99. The adapter will need to connect to PCs though USB and DispayPort 1.4 (or better).

Software-wise, Sony will be releasing a PlayStation VR2 app for PC which can be used alongside Valve’s SteamVR app from Steam. Below are Sony’s PC hardware requirements for PS VR2. Note that Nvidia’s RTX 3060 and AMD’s RX 6600 XT graphics cards are recommended. Even so, lower-end GPUs will technically work if they support DisplayPort 1.4.

It’s worth noting that PC gamers will not be able to access the full capabilities of Sony’s PSVR2 headset. Features like HDR, headset feedback, eye tracking, adaptive triggers, and haptic feedback (other than rumble) will be unavailable on PC. However, PC gamers will be able to take advantage of foveated rendering and 3D audio in supported games.
