About Twenty years ago this week, the PlayStation console changed the face of video games. With 3D graphics and games aimed at more mature audiences and better video gaming experiences. The console marked the beginning of a sea change for gaming.
Sony has changed and refined that hardware a great deal over the course of 20 years, turning the original PlayStation into a sleeker, boxier artifact. The controller saw changes, too, as Sony refined the shape based on player feedback. It also released peripherals such as cameras to experiment with more interactive, motion-based technology.
Play Station Virtual Reality Headset also known as PS VR Headset is new and updated from Sony a top notch and leading electronics production company acknowledged and used world wide.
This new model features a slight redesign that puts the headphone jack at the back, while the cable that connects it to the PlayStation 4 (PS4) has been slimmed down. This was made possible thanks to the new Processor Unit inside the PS VR headset, which also allows for the biggest technical improvement.
The updated version supports HDR passthrough, which “[enables] users to enjoy HDR-compatible PS4 content on a TV without having to disconnect the Processor Unit in between the TV and the PS4 system,” reads Sony’s blog post.
The new headset, codenamed CUH-ZVR2, will be compatible with all PS VR games released so far, however it won’t be possible for current PS VR owners to just swap the Processing Unit and upgrade their existing headset, due to the differences in cables.
The updated model will first launch in Japan on October 14 for ¥44,980 ($400/£300), and come in a bundle with the required PlayStation Camera.
Users in North America, Europe, and the rest of the world will apparently have to wait a little longer, however, as Sony hasn’t specified a launch date as of yet.
