PlayStation VR getting updated headset

PlayStation President Steps Down after 27 Years New Sony PSVR CUH-ZVR2 Revealed

How is it different? The new headset comes with a new processor allowing users to watch HDR content supported by the PlayStation 4, without having to disconnect the headset from the console.

Sony will release a revised PlayStation VR headset on 14th October in Japan and later this year worldwide. However, some retailers may offer this when the new VR headset becomes available.

We haven't yet heard a rollout plan date for western territories or those in Australia, though the Sony US blog hints that a North American launch is set for a "later date". It did mention, however, that the price of the bundle won't change when it reaches other regions too.

Up next in the continuing series of articles that should be entitled "early adaptors, save your money, you fools", Sony has announced that PS VR upgraded hardware is in the pipeline. This is due to the cables being different on each of the models.

The new version will feature a slightly updated design with integrated stereo headphone cables, making the dangling wires that are usually necessary for attaching headphones to the headset much less obtrusive. The headset itself will not display HDR, however, and so HDR is only passed through when the unit is in standby.

In the FAQ section of the PlayStation website, Sony reveals that "a hardware update to PlayStation VR is being prepared". All PSVR games will be compatible with both models.

As compared to the original model (CUH-ZVR1), Sony has relocated the audio port to the left rear area of CUH-ZVR2. The release date of the PSVR CUH-ZVR2 in the United States has not yet been announced. However, users won't be able to just get a new processor unit for their existing headsets top achieve the same. The new CECH-ZCM 2 J features a USB port.
