Recently, a new version of the PlayStation Virtual Reality Headset, the PlayStation VR2, was officially unveiled. The company shared the technical specifications of its headset and controller; But important details such as the final appearance and release date and price are still a mystery. One thing that is not clear about the PSVR2 is whether it will support genuine PSVR games and be so-called Backward Compatible. Unfortunately, Sony has not yet answered that question.
Steven Totillo from Axios Media In a tweet, he announced that he had asked Sony if the PlayStation Is VR2 compatible and will this product be available in 2022? However, as expected, Sony did not answer any of the questions and only wrote: “At the moment, it has nothing more to say.” Nick Baker, co-founder of the XboxEra website and a PlayStation whistleblower, reacted to Totillo’s tweet.
Baker claims to have news sources who told him about a year ago that PSVR2 was not to be Available in a compact background. This means PlayStation games The original VR will not run on the new headset. However, he emphasizes that this is old news and it is possible that Sony has since added this feature to the PlayStation VR2 or intends to add it after its release. To Baker, it seems a little strange that Sony would want to launch a product that is not compatible with the old “all that VR game”.
Currently, PlayStation 5 owners can use PlayStation VR and its games on their console; But if the PlayStation VR2 is not going to support the Backward Compatibility feature, the PS5 owner can no longer experience virtual reality games (for example Astro Bot Rescue Mission) on the new headset, and to do so, they must have the original PlayStation VR version. Be.
Finally, it should be noted that Sony has not yet released any official news about this and the said cases are only unofficial information or speculation. Meanwhile, Sony is the first PSVR2 exclusive game By name Horizon Call of the Mountain Unveiled. The title is a joint product of the studio Guerilla Games and Firesprite. Also, a former member of the Horizon series production team says that Horizon Call of the Mountain will change the AAA definition in the world of virtual reality games.
