The PlayStation 5 will get its own VR headset. Development kits for this will be sent soon, but details about the specifications of the headset are not yet available. It is known that the headset only gets one cable to connect it to the console.

It is a new headset that will be a successor to the PSVR, Sony writes in a blog post. Sony says the new VR headset builds on what the company learned with the PSVR for the PS4. This would make the experience better in several areas, but Sony does not say anything about what resolution or field-of-view the upcoming headset will have.

The company does say that there will be a separate controller to use with the headset. It contains ‘some important features’ that are also on the DualSense controller of the PS5. According to Sony, the headset also contains only one cable to connect the device, which should make for an easier set-up. The current PSVR still requires a separate adapter; Sony hints that it isn’t necessary for the new VR headset.

It is also not yet known when the headset should be released and what it will cost. Sony says that there is still a lot to be done and that the device will therefore not be released in 2021.
