PS VR2 is being examined for PC use to develop the sport library

Sony has confirmed that it’s testing PC assist for the PS VR2 headset. It’s a revelation that VR fans are most actually enthusiastic about. And rightfully so, as a result of it may imply that finally, the record of video games you’ll be able to play with Sony’s second-generation VR headset will develop by a big quantity.

Particulars of the testing are scant and Sony barely touches on the topic in its latest official PlayStation Weblog publish. That’s comprehensible, given the publish is usually about new video games coming quickly to PS VR2. The publish begins by speaking about upcoming video games. So it’s straightforward to overlook the blurb that Sony sneaks in earlier than diving into every sport individually. However in case you don’t skip by the previous few sentences, you’ll see Sony’s reference in regards to the testing. “Additionally, we’re happy to share that we’re at present testing the power for PS VR2 gamers to entry extra video games on PC to supply much more sport selection along with the PS VR2 titles obtainable by PS5,” Sony says.

There’s completely no speak in any respect about what video games the headset will be capable of play. Or if it’ll be capable of entry VR apps or simply video games. That being mentioned, it wouldn’t be a shock if the headset merely labored with one thing like Steam as your chosen headset. And no matter VR video games you owned there could possibly be used with PS VR2, supplied builders added assist.

PC assist for the PS VR2 deliberate for 2024 launch

Whereas Sony doesn’t point out particular video games or a precise time for launch, it does point out a normal launch window. Sony says that PC assist is deliberate for 2024. If it’s in a position to maintain issues on schedule and issues go easily, then later this 12 months PS VR2 homeowners could possibly be linking the headset as much as their PC to play VR video games.

Nonetheless, it’s solely February 23. That leaves A LOT of time between now and the tip of 2024. Simply over 10 months to be exact. So simply because testing is at present occurring and a rollout is deliberate for this 12 months, it doesn’t imply Sony plans to roll issues out quickly. Until you think about a while in the identical 12 months as being quickly. Additionally price noting is that Sony doesn’t point out any working techniques. As MSPowerUser factors out, Home windows isn’t talked about within the weblog publish. Neither is Mac, neither is Linux.

That being mentioned, not including assist for Home windows could be a really unusual transfer. Contemplating all of Sony’s present PC ports for its PlayStation video games are on Home windows. Highway To VR additionally poses one vital query for a element that Sony doesn’t make clear. What sort of PC assist is that this? It’s unclear if Sony plans to permit the PS VR2 to work with PC by a direct connection. And given Sony’s elevated effort to enhance cloud gaming for its platform, it’s not unreasonable to imagine that it’s no less than attainable Sony could require customers to have a PlayStation 5 and that VR gameplay is someway streamed to the headset by way of the PC, whereas it’s bodily related to the console.

That will after all be a bizarre technique to do issues. And it’s most likely extra convoluted than it will must be. However, stranger issues and all that.
