PSVR2 PC Adapter 1

Sony has announced it'll be launching a PSVR2 adapter that allows the VR headset to be played natively on a PC on 7th August 2024, costing £49.99 / $59.99. Connecting the device to a PC using the adapter will allow you to play VR games on Steam, like Half-Life Alyx and thousands of others. Along with the adapter, you'll need a DisplayPort cable that's compatible with DisplayPort 1.4, as well as a Steam account and a capable PC.

The minimum requirements to use PSVR2 on PC via the new adapter are as follows:

Operating system Windows 10 64-bit / Windows 11 64-bit
Processor Intel Core i5-7600 / AMD Ryzen 3 3100 (Zen 2 or later architecture is required)

DisplayPort DisplayPort 1.4 (must have a standard DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort output port)
USB Direct connection only

There'll be a PSVR2 app you can download, and you'll need the SteamVR app also. "This will allow you to set up PS VR2 on your PC, customize your settings and play area, and start purchasing and playing games in SteamVR." When playing PSVR2 on PC, HDR, headset feedback, eye tracking, adaptive triggers, and haptic feedback are not available.
