Sony Introduces New PlayStation VR Headset

New Play Station VR Headset Announced

But Sony has announced a new model, CUH-ZVR2, with integrated headphones, a slimmer connection cable, and an updated processor unit that allows for the PS4 to output HDR content on a TV when the VR headset is turned off.

PlayStation VR, the first version of which was released past year, is a headset that connects to the PlayStation 4 game console that lets users play virtual-reality games.

Sony is not yet ready to announce a United States release date for the new PS VR model, but the CUH-ZVR2 will launch in Japan on October 14th.

Apart from this, the new updated PlayStation VR will be compatible with all PSVR content and there will be no any changes on it.

Unfortunately, Sony didn't give out an exact release date for the new PlayStation VR headset in North America.

Sony says that the new PlayStation VR packaging will also be slightly different.

Sony has announced plans to live stream the PlayStation event that will be taking place on October 30th, 2017 in Paris for the Games Week 2017 event. And there's a whole bunch of other smaller features, like Team Tournaments, the ability to follow any player, virtual surround sound on PlayStation VR, and new system language options. The new VR Headset will be bundled with the PlayStation Camera that will cost ¥44,980 which is around $400 in the worldwide market.

Sony's upcoming PlayStation VR revision, model CUH-ZVR2, will support HDR passthrough, but the thing is, it's an all or nothing approach.

All PlayStation VR games will be compatible with both models of the headset, so gamers shouldn't have to worry about that.

The most noticeable update is that the headphones have been integrated directly into the headset.

PS VR has a 1920 x 1080 OLED display that can refresh at 90Hz or 120Hz depending on the game you're playing.

Sony hasn't revealed when the new headset will be released, but we can expect it will make its debut before the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. With the PS4 platform under their control, Sony managed to continuously launch a lot of titles to keep the PS VR active throughout the year since it got launched.

The headset one of several competitors in the market, including the HTC Vive and Facebook-owned Oculus Rift.
