PlayStation VR2 Official PC Support Is Coming This Year, Sony Confirms

The PlayStation VR2 headset is getting official PC support later this year, Sony confirmed today.

In a new post on the Official PlayStation Blog detailing some upcoming games, Sony Interactive Entertainment content communications manager Gillen McAllister confirmed that the company is “currently testing the ability for PlayStation VR2 players to access additional games on PC to offer even more game variety in addition to the PlayStation VR2 titles available through PlayStation 5.” Official PC support is expected to come later this year.

The lack of official PC support for the PlayStation VR2 headset was hardly surprising, given how its predecessor also couldn’t be used on PC, at least natively, but it was still quite disappointing, even though iVRy, the developer behind the PC driver of the first PS VR, was working to make the headset PC-compatible.  While it is disappointing that all this hard work has gone to waste, it is great to learn how Sony finally understood how PC support can make its headset more popular.

While waiting for the PlayStation VR2 headset’s official PC support, you can learn more about the headset in our review.

Sony’s PlayStation VR2 headset had a lot to prove to justify a cost higher than that of the base PlayStation 5 console needed to operate it. The hands-on test confirms that this is how next-gen should look and play in virtual reality with an experience unlike anything else in the HMD space. Every aspect of the first PlayStation VR has been improved (aside from Cinematic Mode largely remaining as is) with no expense spared for comfort and design. This is the sort of revolution in virtual reality that can showcase not just the experiences that are fun to play but also those that can take advantage of the next-generation console’s power. As new experiences are brought to PlayStation VR2, the value can only improve, but the initial cost of admission may leave some players wanting to take the headset for a test drive first before investing in something the price of a second PlayStation 5.
