PSVR is probably the most accessible version of VR for most people out there. There’s one simple reason for this; there are just so many PS4 consoles out in the wild at this point.

Despite it still being a little too laden down with wires, and also some incredibly hard to find controllers, it’s still a good way to get into VR.

With the PS5 apparently coming into our homes before the end of the year, you’ve got to wonder about the PSVR.

Mostly, will the PS5 even have VR, and if it does, what will that look like?

Will the PS5 have VR?

If Sony doesn’t release a VR headset for the PS5 then they’ll have missed a great opportunity to help stand a little bit taller than the competition.

Of course, there is a chance that the current PSVR will be compatible with the PS5, but it would also make a lot of sense for Sony to design something that can keep up with the new console.

This is almost essential because there really needs to be a redesign of the controllers used for it. The move controllers lack the functionality of something like the Oculus Touch, so upgrading those is important.

What will the PS5 VR look like?

Ideally, the main thing that needs to be addressed is the wires. This is the case across all of VR too, which is why the Oculus Quest is such a revelation.

On top of that, it’s quite possible that the funky new PS5 camera could help boost VR in some way too.



Then there’s the matter of controls. There really do need to be new controllers if another generation of PSVR is going to exist, as the Move just isn’t up to the job, and supplies are limited at best.

It should be more powerful, have fewer wires, come with new controllers, and hey, while we’re making a wishlist, somehow be free too. Even if most of those wishes come true it’ll be in great shape.
