PlayStation VR - CUH-ZVR2

Sony announces an updated PlayStation VR headset with HDR pass through.

With PlayStation VR fast approaching its first birthday, Sony has released details of a revised hardware SKU that offers a number of improvements.

The revision – which is identifiable by its CUH-ZVR2 model number – features a streamlined connection cable, and change in the headset’s design to enable stereo headphones to be integrated.

The device’s Processor Unit has also been updated, meaning that PlayStation VR will now support HDR pass through. This much-requested feature will enable users to play HDR-compatible content on a TV without having to disconnect the Processor Unit. Rejoice!

However, due to the redesign of the connection cable, it is not possible to swap an old design PlayStation VR processor unit for one of the newer models. Unrejoice!

All existing games and peripherals will be compatible with the redesigned headset.

As yet there are no details on a confirmed release date, and it’s likely that both models will be available for a short time, so make sure you check the model number before purchasing.

You can read full details on the PlayStation blog.
