Sony's updated PlayStation VR has a better design and won't block HDR

New Sony PSVR CUH-ZVR2 Revealed

The revision - which is identifiable by its CUH-ZVR2 model number - features a streamlined connection cable, and change in the headset's design to enable stereo headphones to be integrated. This function can be used only when the VR headset is turned off.

Currently, there is no release date for the new CUH-ZVR2 model. So, if you have a PlayStation 4 or higher version, then PlayStation VR is a must have accessories, to enjoy the next generation gaming titles.

Sony hasn't revealed full details of the upcoming VR headset but has said that in order to differentiate between the two models, it'll ship with updated retail packaging. In the new model, the headphone jack is not on the wire hanging from the headset, instead, Sony moved it to the back of the gadget. This news comes nearly a year after the first one launched, and with this new model, Sony aims to fix some problem points that were present in the original. To be more exact, the tech company will release the new Sony PlayStation VR headset on October 14 in Japan.

You can. They won't be in VR, though. It'll remain compatible with all PS VR games and peripherals.

In a blog entry, Sony stated, that It has been just about a year since the dispatch of PlayStation VR.

On top of that, the cable connecting the headset and the Processor unit is slimmer for better usage comfort. In Canada, the base PlayStation VR bundle starts at $549.99. This, unfortunately, makes the Processor Unit incompatible with existing headsets. The bundle is expected to be sold at a price of about $400. The improved model makes adjustments to the core virtual reality experience based on user feedback, although it's important to note that its functionality and features remain identical to the model that launched previous year.
