Recent certification from the Korean Radio Research Agency has stirred up excitement among virtual reality enthusiasts, hinting at Sony’s development of a PC adapter for the PSVR 2. This regulatory approval, spotted by VR influencer Brad Lynch, reveals a product labeled the “PlayStationVR2 PC adapter,” manufactured by a regional subsidiary of Sony Interactive Entertainment. While the specifics remain undisclosed, the adapter’s name strongly suggests its purpose: facilitating the compatibility of the PSVR 2, initially designed for the PlayStation 5, with PC systems.

This revelation follows Sony’s official confirmation earlier this year that the PSVR 2 was undergoing testing to support PC games. The adapter is anticipated to bridge the gap, enabling the PSVR 2 to interface with select PC games on platforms like Steam, aligning it with the functionality of other VR headsets.

For PSVR 2 owners, the prospect of a PC adapter offers a glimmer of hope in an otherwise lackluster year. Despite a handful of impressive launch titles such as Horizon: Call of the Mountain, the headset has faced criticism for its limited game library and comparatively higher price point, especially when compared to more affordable alternatives like the Meta Quest 3.

The introduction of PC support promises to extend the headset’s utility, potentially granting access to a broader selection of top-tier VR games, including acclaimed titles like Half-Life: Alyx. While the PSVR 2 may have faced challenges in terms of software availability, its hardware qualities have earned commendation. In our PSVR 2 review, we lauded its user-friendly setup process, responsive performance, comfortable design, and impressive visual fidelity, ultimately awarding it a high rating of four and a half stars.
