The PlayStation VR headset was not compatible with the PC when it first came out in 2016. However, skilled third-party developers were able to fix that problem. PlayStation VR2 for PlayStation 5 will be available in February. According to the original PSVR PC drivers author, the performance of this new VR headset on PC has been questioned.
The creator of iVRy Driver believes that it will be impossible to use the PlayStation VR2 headset on a Windows PC at the beginning of sales and even later. He expects that Sony will use encryption to protect the USB signal. It could take years to create a solution, even if it doesn’t happen.
Compatibility will be affected by other issues. To support controllers and other issues, it is necessary to create a tracker that automatically builds a space map under Windows and tracks a user. According to the author, it is unlikely that PlayStation VR2 will ever be used on PC within the next 5 years. The headset will also become obsolete by this time.
The PlayStation VR2 will be available worldwide from February 22nd. The headset will come with Horizon: Call of the Mountain. There will also be compatibility updates for many games like Gran Turismo 7 (Resident Evil Village) and Gran Turismo 7.
