Back in 2016, Sony announced its arrival into the world of virtual reality with the launch of the original PlayStation VR. It was the first headset built for use with a games console, and no alternatives have emerged since.
While the original PS VR is compatible with the PS5 (provided you request the separate adapter), there’s always been an expectation we’d a successor that’s specifically designed for the new console.
That became a reality in November 2022, when the PlayStation VR 2 was officially announced. It’s a significant refresh, with key upgrades including a new OLED screen, wider 110-degree field of view and support for 120Hz and 4K HDR.
