PlayStation VR Headset gets a Redesign + a few Welcome Upgrades

Sony is just about to celebrate the PlayStation VR‘s 1st Anniversary, and has a few things to raise its glass about: just this past week, the gaming giant announced it had sold yet another half million units. Today, it announces that its PSVR Headset is getting a little makeover, one which is more than simply cosmetic.

Japanese PlayStation fans will get first crack at the newly redesigned VR Headset, the CUH-ZVR2, to be available on October 14th, as per the company’s website. Sony also announced that it now counts 100 titles as you Sunday October 1st.

The upgrades to the latest model PS VR (CUH – ZVR 2), were made to provide users more comfort and improved usability:

  • Stereo headphone jack is placed at the rear of VR headset. The cable wiring is integrated into the VR headset by the connection of enclosed stereo headphones.
  • Consolidate cables connecting the VR headset and processor unit to a slim, single cable.
  • Processor unit supports HDR video pass-through, enabling 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. This function can be used only when the VR headset is turned off.

We look forward to trying out the newly redesigned PSVR2 headset! In the meantime, let’s poke some fun at our editor 😉
