PS5 adapters for PlayStation VR will soon come bundled with select retail units that are being sold.
If you’re looking to play PSVR games on your PS5 come tomorrow, you’ll find that you might still be needing to acquire an adapter that will allow your headset to be compatible with the next-gen console. While Sony has been allowing existing PSVR owners to request this adapter for free on their website for a few weeks now, today the company has revealed what it will be doing to help prospective owners of the headset.
Over on the official PlayStation Twitter account today, it was announced that Sony is planning to begin packing in these PS5 adapters for PSVR with bundles for the headset starting later this month. In particular, the Iron Man VR bundle was mentioned as the sole version that will be including this new cable. Considering the Iron Man VR bundle is the standard bundle that Sony sells PSVR with now, this really isn’t a shock. It’s also worth mentioning that this rollout is also only planned for the United States and Canada at the moment.
The PS Camera adaptor, required to connect PS VR to PS5, will be included in the PS VR Marvel’s Iron Man VR Bundle starting end of this month, across US and Canada. Check your local retailers for availability.

On a personal note, I think I’ve just decided to keep my PSVR hooked up to my PS4 and put it elsewhere in my own house. Considering how freaking big the PS5 is to begin with, the thought of also setting up my PSVR kit next to it just sounds like it’d take up too much real estate under my entertainment center. Time to put my VR rig somewhere else.
Regardless of my own situation, it’s good to hear that Sony will begin putting these PS5 adapters in new PSVR bundles relatively soon. Now to just wait for that new iteration of the headset that is said to be in the works.
