In Short
  • Sony has finally announced the PSVR 2 PC adapter, allowing gamers to connect the VR headset to the PC.
  • The PSVR 2 adapter for PC will launch on August 7, 2024.
  • It will cost $59.99 / €59.99 / £49.99 at select retailers.

Sony has slowly but steadily been shifting its focus to the world of PCs. While previously it was the God of War Ragnarok PC port, we have even more exciting news now. Sony is now bringing PSVR 2 to computers with its brand-new launch of the PSVR 2 PC Adapter.

The PSVR 2 PC adapter, announced in a Sony blog post, will allow you to connect the PSVR 2 to a PC and play all Steam VR games, including Half-Life: Alyx, Boneworks VR, and more. It will cost $59.99 (€59.99 /£49.99) and launch at select retailers on August 7, 2024.

However, the PSVR 2 won’t carry over all the features PS5 owners are used to. Key features like HDR, headset feedback, eye tracking, adaptive triggers on the VR controllers, and haptic feedback won’t be available when using the headset on a PC.

However, you can use the headset in 4K and take advantage of the 110-degree field of view, finger touch detection, and see-through view. Enhanced rendering (without eye tracking) and 3D audio support in select games will also be available.

So, that halves the usable features of PSVR 2 when trying it out on a PC. Maybe Sony still wants the gamers to try out the headset on the console itself. Otherwise, omitting these features doesn’t make any sense unless they don’t plan to add these supports to the headset on PC in the future.

PSVR 2 PC System Requirements

Besides this exciting news and some missing features, Sony also detailed the system requirements to run the VR headset on a PC. Check them out and see if you’re already prepared:

Even though I don’t own a PSVR 2, I am fairly excited about this news. Because, if nothing else, it opens up the ever-changing borders between the PC and console world even more! So, will you try out PSVR 2 on your computer? Let us know in the comments below!
