An Official PlayStation VR2 PC Adapter Has Appeared In Certification

Neat!

While Sony had already announced a few months ago that players would soon be able to use the PlayStation VR2 headset with a PC, we now might have a better idea of how that’s going to work.

As spotted by X user, Brad Lynch, the company had filed for certification of a “PlayStation VR2 PC adapter” with the National Radio Research Agency in South Korea. The certification looks to have been filed in March this year, and the adapter will carry the model number ” CFI-ZVP1.”

It’s unclear whether Sony might offer these adapters as a goodwill gesture in a similar way to how it handed out a kit for PS VR1 users to continue playing on PS5, but given that this is a venture onto a new platform entirely it seems more like it’d sell it separately. With fairly recent rumblings that the company is sitting on a surplus of PlayStation VR2 units, perhaps the company will decide to bundle some of these together with a PC adapter in an effort to get them in the hands of PC VR players.

Either way, a plug-and-play adapter for the PSVR2 on PC should open up the gates for folks with a capable enough rig to easily use the PS VR2 as their headset of choice, presumably without the need to even own a PS5. There’s a massive market for VR on PC and the PS VR2 is still one of the better headsets out there for comfort, display quality and features. It’ll also mean we might see PS VR2-specific features in existing PC VR games among other neat new developments.

Given that Sony has previously said support for PS VR2 would arrive this year, and in fact a recent firmware update for the headset has already enabled it, we’ll probably see these adapters soon enough.

In its announcement on the PlayStation Blog earlier this year,  the company wrote, “..we’re pleased to share that we are currently testing the ability for PS VR2 players to access additional games on PC to offer even more game variety in addition to the PS VR2 titles available through PS5. We hope to make this support available in 2024, so stay tuned for more updates.”
