PlayStation VR is getting a little hardware update

PS4 News PS Plus October Games PUBG Release date Play Station VR Update

StringerSony is launching a new, updated PlayStation Virtual Reality (PS VR) headset.

An updated Processor Unit now supports HDR pass through so there is no need to disconnect the Processor Unit every time you want to watch HDR-compatible content on your PS4.

In partnership with Capital One, Sony will be introducing its new PlayStation credit card for all fans of the gaming console. It doesn't have many headline new features, but it does contain a number of small enhancements to help improve the overall experience of playing in VR. The new headset commonly referred to as the PS VR packs numerous improvements over its predecessor. With the integration of the headphone cables, it means there are less cables hanging around while the user is moving. The packaging for the refreshed headset will also be slightly different, with a new product image that shows the changes.

Paul Dummett remains on the sidelines with a hamstring injury meaning manager Rafael Benitez has an nearly full-squad to choose from.

The changes are the first significant updates since the original headset, which has the model number CUH-ZVR1, first went on sale a year ago. 4K or UHD content was already supported byt the PSVR's processor unit. The cables which connect that to the Processing box will also be slimmer and more streamlined.

Here is the complete set of features offered by the upgraded version of PlayStation VR. However, the price was dropped a little with the intention of making the headset more affordable, allowing gamers to enjoy popular games such as Robinson: The Journey and Farpoint, Superhot VR and so on. The pricing of the new model will remain the same as the current version.

In a blog post, Sony said, "It has been nearly a year since the launch of PlayStation VR". So in order to take advantage of this feature, users would have to buy a new unit. The company announced in June that it had sold over one million headsets since the launch of the device a year ago. The unit will come in a bundle with the PlayStation Camera and it will cost ¥44,980, which translates into around $400.
