The PlayStation VR2’s PC adapter is now official. Just a few days after a certification revealed that Sony was working on the adapter, which would add PC support to the PS5-exclusive headset, the company officially unveiled the connector. It launches on August 7th and will cost $59.99.

Sony says the device will support all Steam VR games, including big-name titles like Half-Life: Alyx. In addition to the new adapter, Sony says players will need a DisplayPort cable to work with Steam titles on PC. (As well as a Steam account, obviously.)

In a blog post, Sony explains that there will be some feature differences depending on whether you’re playing on PS5 or PC:

PS VR2 was designed from the ground up specifically for PS5 — so you’ll notice that some key features, like HDR, headset feedback, eye tracking, adaptive triggers, and haptic feedback (other than rumble), are not available when playing on PC. However, other high-fidelity and sensory immersion features of PS VR2 are supported, including 4K visuals (2000 x 2040 per eye), 110-degree field of view, finger touch detection, and see-through view, as well as foveated rendering (without eye tracking) and 3D Audio in supported games.

Sony originally confirmed PC support was coming to the device back in February, which would allow PSVR 2 owners to connect the device to a PC to play non-PlayStation games. At the time, it didn’t reveal any timing beyond a vague 2024. That reveal came almost exactly a year after the headset launched.
