PSVR 2 on PC

Sony has confirmed that it's working on bringing official support for its virtual reality headset, the PSVR 2, to PC.

Believe it or not, it's been a year since Sony's second stab at a virtual reality headset hit the market. The PSVR 2 arrived, as a PS5-only accessory, back in February of 2023. Now, Sony has announced fresh plans to add in PC support to their PlayStation VR2 headset.

In a blog post announcing several new games coming to the PSVR 2 platform Gillen McAllister of Sony Interactive noted that they are "currently testing the ability for PS VR2 players to access additional games on PC" adding that the aim is to "make this support available in 2024". So, no firm date on things just yet, but a rough timetable and official confirmation that it's happening is good news all the same.

Coming soon to PS VR2 – Zombie Army VR, Little Cities: Bigger!, Wanderer: The Fragments of Fate, The Wizards – Dark Times: Brotherhood, and more
Also Arizona Sunshine 2 free update released, new details on Soul Covenant.

When the device first launched there was plenty of speculation as to whether the refreshed VR headset would offer some form of PC support. When official compatibility didn't surface, the hacking community got to work on trying to make such a thing a reality. Now, Sony are bringing official support — although at this stage we don't know much about the extent of support, how it will work, or how limited it may be.

Initial sales figures for the PSVR 2 were seen as being somewhat positive, with numbers from the first six weeks of availability reportedly beating those of the first PlayStation VR device. However, since then we haven't had any updated numbers on how things are performing for the PSVR 2, with general sentiment towards the device and the consumer VR market at large suffering a "major downtown" over the past year.

The PSVR 2 opening up to PC players, along with Apple's foray into the headset space, could give things some momentum, but the outlook points to it being a long, slow burn before the market reaches maturity, so we shall see.

Either way, whatever ends up happening, happy birthday PSVR 2 — you made it this far.
