Feature differences with PS VR2 on PS5

PS VR2 was designed from the ground up specifically for the PS5 – so you’ll notice that some key features, like HDR, headset feedback, eye tracking, adaptive triggers and haptic feedback ( apart from the rumble), not available when playing on PC. However, other high-fidelity and sensory immersion features of PS VR2 are supported, including 4K visuals (2000 x 2040 per eye), 110-degree field of view, finger touch detection, and mode see-through, as well as improved rendering (no eye tracking needed) and 3D Audio in supported games.***

While the best way to experience PS VR2 gaming remains on PS5, we hope players will enjoy the ability to play an expanded variety of VR games on PC using the same headset. You can check out Steam’s massive library of multiplayer open worlds, stealth action and survival horror games, sports simulations, puzzle games, and fan favorites. Like for free on Steam shop.
