Sony has confirmed that the PSVR 2 PC adapter that leaked last week is real, and that people will be able to buy it from August 7th. The PSVR 2 PC adapter will allow those who own the headset to tap into the library of VR games on PC through SteamVR. The adapter will cost  $59.99 / €59.99 / £49.99.

There is a catch as not all of the PSVR 2 features will work on PC. HDR, headset feedback, eye tracking, adaptive triggers, and haptic feedback (except rumble) will not work when using the headset to play games on PC. The PSVR 2 features that will function on PC are 4K visuals (2000 x 2040 per eye), 110-degree field of view, finger touch detection, see-through view, foveated rendering, and 3D audio where supported. The minimum specs that you will need to operate the PSVR 2 on PC are listed below.

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)
RAM / memory 8 GB or more
GPU / graphics card -NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 or later (Turing or later architecture is required)-NVIDIA RTX series-AMD Radeon RX 5500XT or later / AMD Radeon RX 6500XT or later
(For the best performance, we recommend that you use an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 or later or AMD Radeon RX 6600XT or later graphics card)
DisplayPort DisplayPort 1.4 (must have a standard DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort output port)
USB Direct connection only
Bluetooth Bluetooth 4.0 or later**

 

If you do get the PSVR 2 PC adapter, set up is relatively straightforward. You will need to plug in the adapter to PC, along with a DisplayPort 1.4 cable. Sony does not provide this cable and you will have to purchase this separately if you do not have one already. You will also need to register for a Steam account if you do not have one already to get access to the SteamVR store and games library.

The PSVR 2 is currently on sale through Sony’s Day of Play promotion. You can pick up the headset by itself for £439.99, or get the PSVR 2 Call of the Mountain bundle for £479.99.
