PlayStation VR getting updated headset

New Play Station VR Headset Announced

PlayStation has revealed a new VR headset that sees small, but positive, changes made to its headset.

Currently, there is no release date for the new CUH-ZVR2 model.

Is this the time for those of you yet to invest to jump into the VR world?

PlayStation VR is still the most user-friendly, full-fledged virtual reality experience out there, and a slight hardware revision is going to shave off a couple of its remaining rough edges. Sony has rectified this by integrating the headphones into the back of the headset itself, which in turn makes the connection cable slimmer. Previously, you needed to plug your headphones into a panel incorporated into the headset's primary cable, which was prone to tangling. Sony has, however, confirmed that there will be no change in the pricing of the new headset. 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 new headset will feature as a part of a new bundle along with the PlayStation Camera in Japan on 14 October. So in order to take advantage of this feature, users would have to buy a new unit.

Generally speaking, this isn't the most exciting refresh in the world, but it certainly looks to rectify some of the slight design issues we experienced when testing the original headset a year ago.

"So far, many people have bought VR devices for gaming, but other material, including sports, film, TV and pornography, is now playing a bigger role in the market's growth", said CCS Insight analyst George Jijiashvili. Along with the headset, Playstation VR games also got a price cut.

Fans of Sony's PlayStation consoles now have a chance to express their undying love for the gaming product by getting a credit card officially tied to the brand.
