On this PlayStation 5 guide page you will find the answer to the question - does the new Sony console support VR? Can previous VR devices be plugged into PS5 consoles?
Unofficially, rumors are that the PS5 is to receive an improved version of the PlayStation VR in the future. This should come as no surprise to anyone considering that PS VR has been a big success with the previous generation. The new VR version is to have a built-in camera and headphones and be operated with special gloves. Furthermore, the PlayStation Move is also expected to return in a newer release.
The PlayStation VR is supposed to be wireless and virtually eliminate the discomfort of using a VR device. It is expected to be the definitive version of the hardware, which will also attract the attention of gamers with a much larger number of VR titles. The PS5 is much more powerful than the PS4 which will definitely translate into more impressive and complex games. Will the owners of PS4-dedicated VR devices be able to use them with PS5? What new games will appear for PlayStation VR after the PS5 release? You can find answers to these questions below.
PSVR - Can I use it for PS5?
Sony has made sure that all those interested in VR experience can play PlayStation VR games on the latest PS5 console. However, once you connect PlayStation VR to your PS5 console, you will need to do some extra activities that are necessary to play games which support the VR system. To set up PS VR with PS5, you will need a PlayStation Camera for PS4 and a special PlayStation Camera adapter.
At the time we are writing this guide (that is, August 2020), the PlayStation Camera adapter for PS5 is not yet available in the PlayStation store. As soon as it becomes available we will provide more information on how to get it.
