PlayStation rolling out major new hardware we've been begging for

PS VR2 users just gained access to hundreds more games

PS VR2 users will soon be able to access games on PC, Sony has confirmed.

The PS VR2 isn’t exactly as popular as Sony might’ve hoped but then again, they surely cannot be surprised when it commands such a hefty price tag.

If you did choose to splash the cash on this device though, there are some great games you can enjoy including Horizon: Call of the Mountain as well as the upcoming Metro: Awakening VR.

At the present moment, you need a PlayStation 5 console to run all of these experiences but that’ll soon change as finally, Sony has unveiled that PC support is coming to PS VR2 thanks to a handy new PC adapter.

This support will roll out on 7 December and yes, that does mean that PS VR2 users will gain access to Steam’s vast library of VR titles including Half-Life: Alyx, Fallout 4 VR, and War Thunder.

To use your device via PC, you’ll need to purchase a PlayStation VR2 PC adaptor which will retail at £49.99 / $59.99 and you’ll need a “commercially available DisplayPort cable that is compatible with DisplayPort 1.4, as well as a Steam account and a PC that meets the minimum requirements.”

Call of the Mountain is a must-play experience for fans of the Horizon franchise.

As for those PC requirements, you’ll need to be running Windows 10 64-bit or Windows 11 64-bit, have an Intel Core i5-7600 or AMD Ryzen 3 3100 processor, and 8GB or more of RAM.

That’s in addition to a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 or later, NVIDIA RTX series, AMD Radeon RX 5500XT or later, or AMD Radeon RX 6500XT or later graphics card - and your Bluetooth must be 4.0 or later.

There will be a few differences when playing via PC.

“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,” a blog post reads.

“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.”

As such, PS5 remains the prominent destination platform to best experience the PS VR2 but it’s still undoubtedly great to see this much-requested expansion.
