PSVR 2 owners will soon be able to hook their VR unit to their PC, giving access to hundreds of virtual reality titles on Steam. Sony confirmed that although the headset is built specifically for the PS5, PSVR2 will work with a PC, although there are a few caveats to this.

For gamers to connect their PS VR 2 headsets to a PC they will need to purchase a PlayStation VR2 PC adapter. This will be available which will be available on 7 August for an estimated retail price of £49.99/ €59.99 / $59.99. Players will also need a available DisplayPort cable that is compatible with DisplayPort 1.4 in order to use the unit.

As PSVR 2 is built for console gaming, some features won’t be available for use on PC. Sony confirms that key features, like HDR, headset feedback, eye tracking, adaptive triggers and haptic feedback are not available when playing on PC. It’s not all bad though as 4K visuals (2000 x 2040 per eye), 110-degree field of view, finger touch detection, and see-through view and 3D Audio will be available in supported games. The requirements for running PlayStation VR 2 on PC have been provided by Steam:

The PSVR 2 headset has struggled to find its place, the unit itself is almost as expensive as a PS5, so Sony hopes that making the unit PC friendly will help bump sales. Some of the missing features like adaptive rumble and HDR missing from the PC link, this will no doubt disappoint some fans looking for the full VR experience.

PlayStation VR 2 is out now. The PSVR2 PC link will arrive on 7 August.
