Connect PlayStation VR2 to the PC: These options are available

by Pramith

To connect the PlayStation VR2 to the PC, you need additional hardware. Sony offers a suitable adapter for this

PlayStation VR2: PC connection possible via adapter

You can connect the PlayStation VR2 directly to your PC from August 7, 2024.

  • Sony will release the PlayStation VR2 PC adapter on this date, according to the official PlayStation Blog, which you can connect to your computer via a conventional DisplayPort cable (DisplayPort 1.4 or higher) and the USB-A port. The cable is not included with the adapter.
  • The adapter will cost 59.99 euros according to current information (as of June 2024). Only VR titles from the Steam range are available to play.
  • You therefore need a Steam account to use the game, as well as SteamVR. Furthermore, the PlayStation VR2 app will be released to coincide with the release to complete the setup and linking
  • The minimum PC requirements can be found in the blog entry. Sony recommends at least an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 or AMD Radeon RX 6600XT GPU, as well as eight gigabytes of RAM memory and an Intel Core i5-7600 or AMD Ryzen 3 3100 CPU for optimal use.
  • Important: Your PC must of course meet the requirements of the SteamVR titles in order for them to work. You should therefore check these in advance

PlayStation VR2: Range of functions

PlayStation VR2 does not offer the same range of functions on the PC as on the PS5.

  • The adapter supports 4K resolutions of 2,000 x 2,040 pixels per eye and the 110-degree field of view. Unfortunately, you will have to do without HDR
  • Other features on the PC are the pass-through view, foveated rendering and touch detection. Headset feedback and eye tracking are not available
  • In terms of sound, SteamVR audio technology is used instead of Tempest 3D AudioTech. This probably makes for a different 3D audio experience
  • Of course, you will have to do without the adaptive triggers and haptic feedback, which is used exclusively on the PS5. More information on the remaining functions will probably follow with the release
  • Note: As an alternative to the official adapter, a PSVR2 extension of the iVRy Driver for SteamVR is in development. However, the experiences with the software and the predecessor PSVR are mixed, which will probably make the adapter the more effective variant.
