How to Connect PlayStation VR2 to your PC using the PS VR2 PC adapter?

Setup Instructions

Setting up is straightforward:

  1. Connect PlayStation VR2 to your PC using the PS VR2 PC adapter and the DisplayPort 1.4 cable.
  2. Download the PlayStation VR2 App and the SteamVR App from Steam.
  3. Set up PS VR2 on your PC, customize your settings and play area, and start purchasing and playing games in SteamVR.

As with all PC gaming technology, performance may vary depending on your PC setup, including system compatibility and the quality of your DisplayPort 1.4 cable. Ensure your setup meets the minimum requirements. SteamVR titles also have individual system requirements, so refer to the game information on Steam.

Feature Differences with PS VR2 on PS5

PS VR2 was specifically designed for PS5, so some key features, like HDR, headset feedback, eye tracking, adaptive triggers, and haptic feedback (other than rumble), are not available when playing on PC.

However, other high-fidelity and sensory immersion features of PS VR2 are supported, including 4K visuals (2000 x 2040 per eye), a 110-degree field of view, finger touch detection, and see-through view, as well as foveated rendering (without eye tracking) and 3D Audio in supported games.

While the most immersive way to experience PS VR2 gaming remains on PS5, it is expected that players will enjoy the expanded lineup of VR games on PC using the same headset.

You can explore Steam’s extensive library of multiplayer open worlds, survival horror, stealth action games, sports sims, puzzlers, and free-to-play fan favorites on the Steam Store.

Additionally, as part of our Days of Play celebration, gamers in select regions can get $100 off PS VR2 and the PS VR2 Horizon Call of the Mountain Bundle (for PS5) until June 12. Be sure to check direct.playstation.com (available in select markets) and participating local retailers, as offers and promotion dates may vary by region.
