Sony Made Some Minor But Helpful Changes to the PlayStation VR Hardware

Sony PSVR 2017

This much-requested feature will enable users to play HDR-compatible content on a TV without having to disconnect the Processor Unit.

Sony will release a revised PlayStation VR headset on 14th October in Japan and later this year worldwide.

The CUH-ZVR2 model will also have updated packaging which should make it easy to spot the new model when compared to the older one. Nothing major, then, though with PSVR only a year old Sony would be hard pressed to implement major new features that would require early adopters to update.

Japanese electronics giant Sony is set to launch an updated variant of its Playstation VR headset. With the integration of the headphone cables, it means there are less cables hanging around while the user is moving. While there's no launch date for that model in the USA, it may be worth holding off until it launches, especially because Sony is promising that prices won't change. PlayStation VR owners won't be able to just swap out their existing processor unit for the updated box, however, since the cables are different.

The machine also comes with a "slimmer, streamlined" connection cable, no doubt useful when it has to drape down your back. That's not to say that the new PSVR unit will now support HDR, but rather that a big problem from the original has been solved.

This was one of the small issues with owning a PlayStation VR and PlayStation 4 Pro. It'll remain compatible with all PS VR games and peripherals. The improved model makes adjustments to the core virtual reality experience based on user feedback, although it's important to note that its functionality and features remain identical to the model that launched past year.

Given the proximity of the two hardware launches, you would think that Sony would ensure that both parts would work flawlessly together and that they would complement each other. The unit will come in a bundle with the PlayStation Camera and it will cost ¥44,980, which translates into around $400. But for North America, Sony has promised to keep the bundle prices unchanged, claims The Verge.
