Sony Made Some Minor But Helpful Changes to the PlayStation VR Hardware

Posted October 04, 2017

But as this change necessitates a new Processor Unit and cables, owners of the previous PSVR model can not simply swap out units for the older existing model. With the new box users will no longer have to unhook the video feed cable to game on an HDR screen, which solves one of the main frustration points for PS4 Pro owners. The packaging will also change, so customers can clearly tell the difference between the old model and the new. If you're wondering what's worth playing on Sony's VR headset, check out our roundup of the best PlayStation VR games.

PlayStation VR, the first version of which was released previous year, is a headset that connects to the PlayStation 4 game console that lets users play virtual-reality games. This is the second edition of the PlayStation VR, which offers an improved build quality, new design as well as the powerful camera. As the cables in the upcoming PSVR are different, you won't be able to swap out the old processor units with the new ones. This, unfortunately, makes the Processor Unit incompatible with existing headsets. The product image up front will be updated slightly to show the changes on the new model. PlayStation has been a huge part of my life for more than 20 years but with the business having achieved record-breaking success, now seemed to be the right time for me to pursue new challenges. The pricing for this VR Headset slipped a little. But for North America, Sony has promised to keep the bundle prices unchanged, claims The Verge.
