Sony's updated PlayStation VR headset has an improved design, new features

Wednesday, 04 Oct, 2017

Simply put, if you've an old VR headset and want HDR passthrough, you're going to have to buy PlayStation VR a second time.

Generally speaking, this isn't the most exciting refresh in the world, but it certainly looks to rectify some of the slight design issues we experienced when testing the original headset a year ago. Sony is among that group as the company revealed that the PlayStation VR will soon have a new improved generation being released into the market. It has an updated Processor Unit that supports HDR.

Does it matter which PS4 model I use? All PSVR games will be playable on both versions. The PS4 is well-established and on its way to achieving 100 million sales, the PS4 Pro launch went smoothly, and PlayStation VR is out there and trying to establish itself.

That's a bit of a bummer for many who already own the current PS VR headset. Along with the headset, Playstation VR games also got a price cut.

Even though Sony did not reveal a U.S. release date for the new Sony PlayStation VR headset, it's safe to assume that the company will try to deliver the new units to several markets before the holiday season. The upgraded PS VR's successor could likely be less than three years away... It requires roughly 9.8 x 6.2 feet of play space, considerably smaller than the HTC Vive.

You can. They won't be in VR, though.
