PlayStation VR2 will soon work with PCs including Steam's VR games

04 Jun 2024 | Rasmus Larsen |

Sony has announced that its PS VR2 headset for PlayStation 5 will have its compatibility extended to PCs. This includes Steam's VR games such as Half-Life: Alyx.

Starting August 7, you will be able to play VR games from PC on Sony's PlayStation VR2 headset, which is equipped with an OLED display with 2000x2040 resolution per eye.

- "Today, we're happy to share that we’ll be rolling out this support on August 7," announced Sony. "Players will have access to buy and play Steam’s expansive library of thousands of VR games, including fan favorites like Half-Life: Alyx, Fallout 4 VR, and War Thunder."

You can find Steam's VR game library here.


You need a PC adapter

To get started, you must buy Sony's PC adapter for PlayStation VR2, which will be available for $59.99 / €59.99 / £49.99 through partner retailers and, in some countries, directly from Sony's online store.

The PS VR2 headset must be connected to the PC with DisplayPort 1.4 and your PC must meet the minimum requirements outlined in the table at the bottom. You must also download the PlayStation VR2 app and SteamVR app on your PC.

What's missing?

Sony said that certain features will remain exclusive to the PlayStation 5 console, including HDR, headset feedback, eye tracking, adaptive triggers, and haptic feedback (other than rumble). PS VR2 will support 3D audio in supported PC games but it will be rendered through SteamVR's audio technology rather than Sony's Tempest 3D Audio, as on the PlayStation 5 console. - "While the most immersive way to experience PS VR2 gaming remains on PS5, we hope players will enjoy the ability to play an expanded lineup of VR games on PC using the same headset," said Sony. PlayStation VR2 is currently $100 off as part of Sony's Days of Play campaign through online retailers such as amazon.com here. It is also on sale in many other countries.
