Playstation unveils updated VR headset

New Play Station VR Headset Announced

It's a trivial addition, but one that could be useful for those who prefer to leave their PlayStation VR headset connected when it's not in use for the sake of convenience.

As expected, there are some hardware differences to match the design changes.

PlayStation VR is Sony's VR headset, compatible with the PlayStation 4. More information can be found at the FAQ page for the new PS VR. The bad news for you is that you won't be able to swap an old processor unit for a new one due to the fact that the cables are different.

It appears that the display system stays the same in the CUH-ZVR2.

The biggest visible change, though, is that the headphone port has been moved to the rear of the headset itself, and it's now possible to integrate the wiring into the unit for tidier cable management. The availability, pricing of the VR headset is not known at the moment but should be out soon. In Japan, the updated VR headset (in a bundle with the PlayStation Camera) will cost ¥44,980 (about $400).

Japanese electronics giant Sony is set to launch an updated variant of its Playstation VR headset.

Back in May, Market-intelligence firm SuperData research estimated that the PSVR sold 375,000 units in Q1, beating the HTC Vive's 95,000 sales and the 64,000 units Oculus Rift shifted.

Deals figures uncover that Sony is in front of its opponents by a critical edge in the VR class. That should mean that the cheapest bundle for the revised PS VR headset will continue on at $399. To check the event, it will dispatch a progression of recordings praising the gadget and the prevalent accomplishments.

Given the proximity of the two hardware launches, you would think that Sony would ensure that both parts would work flawlessly together and that they would complement each other.
