PlayStation VR2: PC Support Arrives Later This Year!

Sony Interactive Entertainment is already testing PC support for the VR headset, and you can see that the strategy has changed significantly.


There’s a new post on the PlayStation Blog about upcoming PlayStation VE2 games. Gillen McAllister, Content Communications Manager at Sony Interactive Entertainment, writes: “We’re excited to announce that we’re currently testing the ability for PlayStation VR2 players to access additional games on PC to provide even more game variety in addition to the PlayStation VR2 titles available on PlayStation 5. We hope to make this support available in 2024, so stay tuned for more updates.

That’s all Sony Interactive Entertainment has released at the moment, and it’s clear from the announcement that the company isn’t going to leave any money on the table when it comes to generating it from PC support. So far, all we’ve heard is that Sony doesn’t want to neglect the PC, so presumably we won’t have to wait months or even a full year for any of Sony’s in-house developments to hit the PC after the PlayStation 5 launch (such as Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, which Sony is said to be finishing by the end of March, but that doesn’t mean a spring PC release).

Sony’s hardware could also make inroads into the PC VR market, giving a bit of a boost to what are thought to be low sales (we may not have heard any concrete sales results for the next-generation PlayStation VR), as the PC market is larger than the PlayStation 5. So, on sufficiently powerful configurations, gamers could get a better experience with PlayStation VR2, and there could even be talk of PC versions of exclusive games released for the platform. This could also be a way for Sony to make money, as there might not be much work involved in porting.

So Sony is opening up the platform, as there hasn’t been any official crossover between PC and PlayStation for the VR headset. Hopefully we’ll hear more about support soon.
