Sony is finally testing PSVR 2 support on PC

VR for all.

PlayStation VR2 is finally coming to PCs.

PSVR 2 is one of the coolest virtual reality headsets on the market. It has a wealth of features like eye tracking, incredibly high visual fidelity, and some impressive controllers. The biggest downside to the device, aside from wires, is that Sony has locked it to PlayStation 5.

Neither the PS5 nor the PSVR 2 are exactly cheap. Buying a virtual reality headset with such a small collection of games compared to PC is a hard pill to swallow. And with that, I bring good news. Sony is now trying to get the PSVR 2 to work on Windows. It’s only taken the brand a year to hop to it, but better late than never. Boy, howdy, will that upgrade the experience for those who already have one?

Sony announced the development in a PlayStation blog post, nestled in between a bit of self-grandeur. Sure, VR modes for Gran Turismo 7 and Resident Evil Village are great. Still, it lacks a lot of games on PC and Meta Quest. After patting itself on the back for such a good VR lineup, it casually dropped the most important part.

“Also, we’re pleased to share that we are currently testing the ability for PSVR 2 players to access additional games on PC to offer even more game variety in addition to the PSVR 2 titles available through PS5,” Sony glosses. “We hope to make this support available in 2024, so stay tuned for more updates.”

This is possibly the biggest move that PSVR 2 could make. Alongside all the games it unlocks, many of which are substantially cheaper (or even free), it also means mods.

Given Sony’s recent penchant for porting games, it could even pave the way for Horizon Call of the Mountain on PC, too. In our opinion, we’d assume that the chances of this happening are slim, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Either way, it’s great news for PSVR 2 owners with a gaming PC who don’t have a Meta Quest 3. That’s probably more people than you’d think, although we’d love to know the specific stats on that one, too.
