Sony hasn’t committed to backwards compatibility for the PSVR 2, or the new headset, with a 2022 release date.
Earlier this week, Sony unveiled new details about the PSVR 2 headset at its CES 2022 presentation. Nerdshala reporter Stephen Totilo posed a question from Sony about the new headset’s backwards compatibility, as well as whether it will be out later this year, as you can see in the tweet below, but Sony’s No matter was replied to by the Spokesperson.
I asked Sony if the PSVR2 would be out in 2022 and whether it would be backwards compatible with PSVR titles (some people told me to ask them yesterday). Neither was addressed yesterday. Sony PR says they have nothing more to announce at this time. so stay tuned…5 January 2022
That means we’re ultimately in the dark as to when the PS VR 2 headset will actually launch, and whether it will support existing PSVR titles like Astro Bot Rescue Mission, for example. Earlier, Sony had said that the new-gen headset would launch no earlier than 2022, putting a possible 2023 release window firmly into speculation.
Sony first unveiled the PSVR 2 headset in February 2021, only to announce that a VR headset was in development exclusively for the PS5 console. Fast forward almost a year, and we learned that the brand new controllers for the PS VR2 headset will support both adaptive triggers and haptic feedback, both of which are offered by the PS5’s DualSense controller.
Now though, thanks to Sony’s CES 2022 presentation, we know that the PS VR2 will feature a 4K HDR OLED display with a 110-degree field of view, a resolution of 2000×2040 for each eye, a frame rate of up to 120Hz, and the requirement for an external camera. The PS VR2 headset may be a little further away on the horizon, but it’s already shaping up to be a promising piece of technology, even with Guerrilla having an exclusive Horizon game in development.
