Next-Gen PS VR announced for PS5
PlayStation VR is getting an upgrade 🌌
The original PS VR released back on October 13, 2016. Since then, Sony has supported their virtual reality system consistently. There was an updated version of the headset (CUH-ZVR2) released on November 10, 2017. That same PS VR is currently backwards compatible with the PS5, but it doesn’t take advantage of the many next-gen capabilities. As of now, PS VR users on PS5 really are still playing the same old PS4 VR.
Now that the PS5 has been out for nearly four months, there has at last been an official announcement for the next iteration of the PS VR. Over on The Official PlayStation Blog we were given our first details about the new PS VR.
We were told to not expect the PS VR 2 (name pending) to be released in 2021, but it is already under development. The new PS VR will many have new features that will take the PlayStation virtual reality experience to the next level.
The PS5 VR will enable the ultimate entertainment experience with dramatic leaps in performance and interactivity. Players will feel an even greater sense of presence and become even more immersed in their game worlds once they put on the new headset.
Some of the updates mentioned in the official PlayStation post were:
- Enhanced resolution (hopefully 4K)
- Improved field of view
- Better tracking and input
- Will connect to the PS5 with a single cord
- New VR controller great ergonomics and DualSense technology (haptic feedback/adaptive triggers)
The PS4 VR will continue to receive attention until the PS5 VR releases, possibly even afterwards.
What does it look like❓
There have not been any official images released of the PS VR 2 quite yet. There is however a fan-made concept video that is very satisfying when it comes to ideas of how the PS5 VR may look.
Are you excited❓
I personally haven’t even tried VR before, despite being a huge gamer. I’m hoping that this new PS VR for PS5 will be something that encourages me to finally dive in. If Sony delivers something truly next-gen, this could be what awakens a big percentage of gamers to the opportunities that VR offers. Hopefully by the time this finally releases, the PS5 marketplace will be a little more user friendly; meaning you will actually be able to buy one.
I wonder how much it will cost...
Thanks for checking out my blog 😎🤝

wow interesting bro! thanks for the info, but I have a question?
Those who already bought the console will be able to get the headset and the glasses will have a discount to get them?
It means that from that day you can buy the console plus the headset and glasses, it would be great, although in my personal opinion I think that, if it is to buy the console I prefer to wait a year.
I doubt there will be a discount of any kind. Perhaps there will be a bundle with the console that reduces the price a tiny bit. Or a bundle that includes a free very game.
I hope they make you a discount, brother
You've never tried VR???? There are some cool games, but most of them are pretty crappy, so you haven't missed too much. It sucks that Microsoft hasn't joined the VR party yet with their consoles. I have been looking at getting the Oculus Quest since it is a standalone system and way easier to set up than my Vive.
Literally the only experience I have with VR is being forced to wear a shitty headset for a roller coaster ride at six flags in Atlanta. I took it off halfway through because it ruined the ride, nearly lost it on the loops.
Even my mom who’s not a gamer at all has mentioned getting the new quest. I wish she would honestly.
I love the DualSense so much that if they implement that to the fullest with this new VR I think it’ll be a total game changer for immersion. I’ll have to jump onboard then. I already have the PS5 HD Camera, let’s hope that’s the camera they end up using and they don’t switch up and try to get me to buy another one that is “VR Compatible.
I didn't know of this new equiptment. All I think is: Sword Art Online, here we go!

Amazing! .. But..."I wonder how much it will cost..."
My guess is around $200-300 for the headset and vr controller. Plus around $100 for the camera needed to use it.
