Sony Interactive Entertainment announced it is currently testing PC support for the PlayStation VR2 headset with plans to make it available later this year.

"We’re pleased to share that we are currently testing the ability for PS VR2 players to access additional games on PC to offer even more game variety in addition to the PS VR2 titles available through PS5," said Sony Interactive Entertainment content communications manager Gillen McAllister in a PlayStation Blog post.

"We hope to make this support available in 2024, so stay tuned for more updates."

PlayStation VR2 released in February 2023 for 549.99 / €599.99 / £529.99 and currently requires a PlayStation 5.

the best move possible for sony. Maybe they can save their VR initiative with this.

Considering Sony is dead silent on PSVR 2 its safe to say it didn't sell all that well. Perhaps the pc community will like it more, though it faces heavy competition from Meta. People really appreciate the wireless functions of the Quest. I have one so for me it means it's most likely getting a new function which is nice.

Really the only way to try and save it.

They could try to develop games for it as well. I mean after a year we got a GT patch (good one but still) and Call of the Mountain, which is pretty good. Still Sony seemed to actively develop more for PSVR1.

Half-life Alyx here we come :D
and Phasmophobia (if it doesn't come out beforehand on PSVR2).
Also, it's the first time I want to play Microsoft Flight simulator, that would be immersive too :D
Not to mention all the experimental unofficial stuff that is so indie it doesn't get classed as indie & mods too :)

So they want to permanently kill off the PSVR2 then? I mean even if it comes to PC, why use that when the Meta Quest 3 or Valve Index are already available and leagues better???

PSVR2 is the worst $550 I ever spent. Got it at launch because of the hype and used it for maybe 3 days. Only touched it once in the year after. It’s currently sitting in a drawer. Maybe I’ll actual use it again with PC support.

One of the great features of Quest headsets is that you can use them with PC, for games that are not on Quest, so it makes sense that Sony is noticing that and making PS VR2 being PC compatible as well.

Should heve been day one, Sony just handed the PC VR market to Quest.

Well since Meta also actively develops games for the Quest, perhaps that's for the best. Sony will only dump the hardware on pc, but will not actively make games for it. In this regard PSVR2 is like the Vita. Good hardware, but terrible games support. Best we can do is hope that RE games will now also get VR support on pc.

Quest can play all your PC games outside of the Oculus Store. Example, Quest 2 and 3 can play your Steam VR games. If PSVR2 games come to PC, the Quest can Stream them.

Which would make the PSVR2 mostly redundant. It has better specs than the Quest and is cheaper than Oculus/Vive/Steam VR headsets. So perhaps there is a niche market there for PSVR2 there. As long as Sony doesn't make VR games themselves, I can't see it being very successful on PC or PlayStation.

Oh well it's the transition from PSP to Vita all over again, the former being pretty successful, but the latter not so much due to terrible support. One game and one patch simply isn't enough. Outside of Resi, GT, and Call of the Mountain PSVR2 doesn't offer many unique things, nor is there much on the horizon to choose it over cheaper alternatives.

Its debatable on the specs. Quest 3 also offers more features than a PSVR2, like offering AR technology, full Wireless and Streaming, has its own inbuilt store and can be played without relying on external hardware PSVR2 is going to be a hard sell over the new Quest 3, heck the Quest 2 is going for bargain prices now.

I think for Sony, its too little too late. Should have been day one on PC with full access to those exclusives.

Considering it costs more than the console (at least in the USA), it's good that it's getting more functionality. It's too rich for my blood right now.
