PS VR2 PC Adapter Launches This August

Soon owners of a PlayStation VR2 headset can use their VR headset on PC via the release of a PC adapter coming this August.

On the PlayStation Blog, PlayStation has revealed the new hardware which will allow PS VR2 to be used on various of VR games available on Steam, including Steam creator Valve’s own VR game, Half-Life: Alyx.

The PS VR2 PC Adapter will connect to the PC via a USB Type-A plug as well as a DisplayPort 1.4 cable. No HDMI ports, only a DisplayPort. And you’ll need to install a PS VR2 app and the SteamVR app on Steam to get it all set up.

There are limitations to the PS VR2 when plugged into a PC. Not all of its feature set is available on PC (no headset feedback, no eye tracking, no adaptive triggers, no haptic feedback on controller but there is normal rumble support). The 3D audio experience isn’t using any of PlayStation’s Tempest 3D tech, rather it will use SteamVR’s solution instead.

The PS VR2 also has a minimum system requirement to run on PC which are the following:

  • OS: Windoes 10 64-bit, Windows 11 64-bit
  • RAM: at least 8GB
  • GPU: At least Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650/Radeon RX 5500XT/AMD Radeon RX 6500XT
  • DisplayPort 1.4 connection (output can be standard DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort)
  • USB direct connection only
  • Bluetooth 4.0 required (adapter compatibility varies)

With the PS VR2 game library being what it is, the PC adapter enables PS VR2 owners to go beyond the PlayStation ecosystem and experience the bigger selection of VR games on Steam.

Though buying a PS VR2 primarily for PC VR usage seems a bit less attractive, given a lot of its main features won’t be fully utilised unless it’s plugged into a PS5.
