A new update just made the PSVR 2 ready for PCVR, but there’s a catch

What you need to know

  • The latest PSVR 2 headset firmware update enables a direct PC connection via the built-in USB-C cable for supported PCs.
  • Sony hasn’t released a software driver yet, which means official support isn’t quite ready.
  • The headset requires a unique 12V connection, meaning most PC users will need some kind of adapter.

Sony regularly updates the PS5 and all its accessories, including headsets like the PSVR 2. The latest firmware update includes a nifty hidden feature that will soon unlock direct PCVR usage when plugging a PSVR 2 into a supported PC, but there’s a catch: you’ll need a 12V USB-C port for it to work.

Sony’s PSVR 2 hardware is designed similarly to the Nvidia VirtualLink, a special VR-ready port used on the company’s GeForce RTX 2000 series of graphics cards. Nvidia no longer outfits cards with this special port in the 3000 and 4000 generation, meaning only users with a GeForce RTX 2000 series card and a VirtualLink port might be able to directly connect a PSVR 2 and use it as a PC headset.
