Sony has announced a new updated PlayStation VR headset. The headset sports a design similar to the previous model but come with additional improvements.
The previous PS VR’s model number is CUH-ZVR1, and the new PS VR’s model number is CUH-ZVR2. First up, the headphone cable is now integrated within the headset itself. The hardware also comes with a new processor unit and supports HDR pass through. It also includes new components that should allow it to display games in more detail. All PS VR games are compatible with both PS VR models.
Sony said in a company blog post,
A hardware update to PlayStation VR is being prepared. The new version, model number CUH-ZVR2, features an updated design that enables the stereo headphone cables to be integrated with the VR headset and a slimmer, streamlined connection cable. There’s also an updated Processor Unit that supports HDR 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.
The new PlayStation VR model is priced at $400. Earlier this month, the Sony PS VR headset got a price cut in India and is now available for Rs 37,990.
