PSVR 2 PC Adapter: Connect PS5 VR to PC | Sony

Sony recently unveiled the PSVR 2 PC adapter, facilitating connection between the PlayStation 5 VR headset and gaming PCs, expanding access to SteamVR’s extensive game library. Announced through an official PlayStation Blog post, the adapter will be purchasable alongside PC support for the VR headset starting August 7, priced at $59.99 / £49.99, available through PlayStation Direct and select retailers yet to be disclosed.

This adapter necessitates a separate DisplayPort cable compatible with DisplayPort 1.4, which is not provided. Upon acquiring the adapter and cable, users must connect them to their PC and PSVR 2 headset, then download the SteamVR and PSVR 2 apps from Steam for initial setup.

Moreover, Sony has delineated the minimum system requirements for using the PSVR 2 headset on a PC, including Windows 10 64-bit / Windows 11 64-bit OS, Intel Core i5-7600 / AMD Ryzen 3 3100 processor, 8GB or more RAM, and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 or later GPU, among other specifications, detailed below:

For PSVR 2 owners seeking to diversify their game library beyond the PS5’s slow software releases, this adapter presents an attractive solution to access SteamVR titles, including acclaimed games like Half-Life: Alyx. However, the $59.99 / £49.99 price may deter some, particularly considering the initial investment in the PSVR 2 headset priced at $549.99 / £529.99. Fortunately, a current $100 discount as part of PlayStation’s Days of Play promotion offers relief, though only until June 12.
