As for PlayStation VR, Sony recently announced their “next generation” plans for the platform.

What’s new with PSVR 2?

On a base level, Sony SVP of Platform Planning & Management, Hideaki Nishino said they will “develop a next-gen VR system that enhances everything from resolution and field of view to tracking and input. It will connect to PS5 with a single cord to simplify setup and improve ease-of-use, while enabling a high-fidelity visual experience.”

Compared to the clunky set up required for the original PSVR, with a processing breakout box that diverts a HDMI signal to the user, a single cord set up will dramatically simplify the chore of getting into VR on PlayStation. This will almost certainly be achieved using the USB-C port on the front of the PlayStation 5, a connector that was designed with mixed data and video output modes in mind.
