PlayStation VR2 Ultimate FAQ Launched

Sony has published the official FAQ for its upcoming PlayStation VR2 headset. The tech is expected to release on 22 February and if you’re picking it up, you’ll want to read this guide. The FAQ includes some interesting and informative details about the headset. There’s a pricing breakdown, PS4 compatibility questions, how to connect the PS VR2 to your PS5 and other details that Sony has yet to share.

For example, Sony hasn’t said anything about the setup process for the PlayStation VR2. We also didn’t know the official length of the USB C cable which powers the unit. The guide explains that the PS VR2 headset is powered by one USB C cable. Unlike the original VR headset that needed a separate box and a camera to function, this 4.5-meter USB C cable powers the entire system.

The guide also confirms that the PlayStation VR2 system included a Social Screen experience that allows others to see what you’re doing in the game on the screen. Of course, the content on the TV is in 2D.
