Earlier this year, Sony confirmed it was working on PC support for PlayStation VR2, and now we finally have details on how that will work and when. PlayStation VR2 support on PC will officially begin on August 7 and will require an adapter with an estimated retail price of $59.99 USD (€59.99 and £49.99). The adapter will be available at select retailers and directly from PlayStation. Additionally, users will need a DisplayPort cable that is compatible with DisplayPort 1.4—the adapter will not come with one.

There are some minimum requirements for PlayStation VR2 gameplay on PC, but you should always check the minimum requirements for the game you’re trying to play, as that is more important. Regardless, here are the minimum requirements from PlayStation:

  • Operating system: Windows 10 64-bit / Windows 11 64-bit
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-7600 / AMD Ryzen 3 3100 (Zen 2 or later architecture is required)
  • RAM: 8 GB or more
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 or later (Turing or later architecture is required)-NVIDIA RTX series-AMD Radeon RX 5500XT or later / AMD Radeon RX 6500XT or later (For the best performance, we recommend that you use an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 or later or AMD Radeon RX 6600XT or later graphics card)
  • DisplayPort: DisplayPort 1.4 (must have a standard DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort output port)
  • USB: Direct connection only
  • Bluetooth: Bluetooth 4.0 or later
The PlayStation VR2 adapter for PC is priced at $59.99 / €59.99 / £49.99

The setup sounds simple enough: you’ll connect PlayStation VR2 to your PC using the adapter and a DisplayPort 1.4 cable. Then, you’ll have to install the PlayStation VR2 app and the SteamVR app so you can set up PlayStation VR2 on your PC. This includes customizing your settings and play area.

Now for the bad news: Since the PlayStation VR2 was designed specifically for PlayStation 5, not all of the coveted features from the headset will work on PC. This includes HDR, headset feedback, eye tracking, adaptive triggers, and haptic feedback (other than rumble). This is a bit of a bummer, but PlayStation VR2 still offers one of the best experiences thanks to its 2000×2040 resolution per eye, finger touch detection, see-through view, foveated rendering (without eye tracking), and 3D Audio in supported games. Although PlayStation does brag about the headset’s 110-degree field of view, that’s actually a bit of a detriment compared to other modern PC VR headsets.

The good news? If you’re reading this right now, you can save $100 off the PlayStation VR2 at select retailers as part of PlayStation’s Days of Play celebration.
