New PSVR Model To Feature Headphones Integration, HDR Pass Through

| October 2, 2017

New PSVR Model To Feature Headphones Integration, HDR Pass Through News  Sony PSVR PlayStation VR PlayStation 4

Sony is preparing the launch of a new PSVR model that will feature slight changes to the current version sold in stores. The new headset will allow to integrate stereo headphones in the device, and will include a new processor unit that supports HDR pass through, allowing users to keep the processor unit between the TV and the console when they want to watch HDR content on their television. These new features don’t justify a name change, so the device will still be called simply PSVR, although Sony confirms that the new model will be identifiable through the new package and model number.

The news come as a surprise, as the company has not made a formal announcement of the new release. Instead, we have come to know about the new headset through the official FAQ of PSVR on the PlayStation Blog. The post clarifies certain aspects like the new features, how will customers differentiate between both models in the store, or the possibility of simply purchasing a new processor unit to use it with an original PSVR.

On that point, the company confirms that this will not be possible, because the cables that each PSVR model use are different. However, every PSVR game will be compatible with both devices.

Details on the launch of the updated PSVR model will be revealed at a later date, although the fact that the company has shared this information already suggests that the release will take place before the end of the year. The pricing of the new model will remain the same as the current version.

      Yeah its like how the screwed me over with the PSone, or the ipad or galaxy s1. How dare they improve everything then try and sell an imporve product to me.

      Woth you’re logic we’d still be in caves!!! It’s called progress!!!!!

      • Jason Fisher

        Defensive much? I am against progress? You seem like a fool. You must buy the new IPhone every year thinking its miles better when they only add a feature that is already 2 years old. I asked for an upgrade program for the early adopters. I doubt you have ever bought anything unless it were on the clearance rack. Now this means I am willing to pay more for the same device that only has HDR pass through. So not only would they make money off of me AGAIN but I never stated I was against the upgraded model. I am part of the reason they make revisions. So grab the end of that stick and slightly begin to pull it out of your ass. Make sure to use both hands. Such an idiot. Lol.

          Defensive???!!!! What?

          Er yes I do buy the Samsung each year, i sell my old one fully boxed and buy new one sim free. Keep’s the bills down as cost a lot less than getting on contract. Anyone can do it, it’s really simple and easy. You don’t so I’m gona guess you’re more stupid than me!!! Resorting to name calling…let me guess entitled millennial complaining as there’s no mummy and daddy anymore to buy him things!!!

          Whine whine whine,” i brought something, then a year later they upgraded and improve it. And they wana force me to buy again……” that’s capitalism. No one is forcing you to purchase this. YOU WANT IT!!!!! You don’t need it. It’s a luxury item, get over yourself.

          You just jump to conclusions with no facts to base these on, I brought iPod…wrong Samsung. Say I only purchase from clearance……… again wrong.

          Why are you trying to make yourself feel better by attacking me personally??? Trust me I’m an adult I can take it!!!
