Since it came out, everyone wants to know if it can connect your powerful game PC to your PS VR2. The answer isn’t quite as simple as you might think. The PS VR2 is Sony’s second-generation VR headset. It is better than the first-generation PS VR. When paired with the powerful PlayStation 5, it gives you some of the best PS5 VR fun without making you work too hard.
This new version of the PS VR is not just a step forward, but a huge jump. It has better graphics, fewer wires that get tangled, and is powered by the PS5, which makes VR game sessions go more smoothly. But what if you used that cool VR headset with your game system? People who use PC VR want to know if they can play PS VR2 games on their PCs for a more realistic experience.
Every PC gamer is excited about the chance, but can the PS VR2 work with your Nvidia/Radeon-powered battle station? We look into it.
How to Connect a PlayStation VR2 to PC?
To directly connect a PSVR2 to your PC, you just need to plug it into a full-featured USB-C port on your desktop PC. But if you want it to work on a PC, you might have your work cut out for you.
Does PC support PlayStation VR2?
Even though Windows can tell that something is connected to the USB-C port, it’s a whole other story to get it to send a signal. Our game PC with an RTX 3080 graphics card could only show up as a device in Windows. The Verge says that if you plug it into the USB-C port on an AMD GPU, the headset will be able to send a 1080p signal to the headset as a second screen.
Once you connect the PSVR 2 Sense controllers to your computer via USB, they look like HID-compliant game controls, but you can’t use them yet.
Also, when we tried to use the headset with any SteamVR game, nothing changed.
The PSVR2 is not currently compatible with a PC
Even though the devices are recognized, the PSVR2 won’t work on your PC. We probably won’t ever have official drivers, either, which is sad. Sony may want to keep PSVR2 support on the PlayStation platform because they could still make money by selling apps. It’s possible that community-made drivers will be made eventually, but it would be hard for the community to get them to work with something as complicated as the PlayStation VR2.
