Sony has introduced the new generation VR headset for Playstation 5. The new model is under development and comes around five years after the first PS4 variant was released.
The new VR headset is exclusive to Playstation 5. So you can not take the new model and connect to your old Playstation 4 or 4 Pro.

Launch is expected sometime in 2022. This means that Sony is not done with the VR headset and that a lot of work remains. Therefore, a lot of details are also missing.
Some things we know are the following:
- Better image angle that has become wider
- Higher resolution
- A simple cable for connection
- New VR control with DualSense features
We’re continuing to innovate with our new VR system so that our fans can continue to enjoy the unique experiences that are synonymous with PlayStation. We’re taking what we’ve learned since launching PS VR on PS4 to develop a next-gen VR system that enhances everything from resolution and field of view to tracking and input.
The new VR headset connects to your Playstation 5 with a single cable that will make it easier and smoother than ever to get started.
Thus, it is clear that Sony does not intend to release a wireless variant as it was previously rumored.
The new VR headset has a redesigned VR control that borrows a lot of functionality from the DualSense control. It is not clear exactly what is being borrowed, but it is no big deal that the popular, haptic feedback is included.
Unfortunately, Sony has not shown pictures or videos on the VR headset. The image for the article is thus on the old Playstation VR after other images are missing. Sony is working on developer kits that can be sent out to game developers in 2021.
