Sony Says PS VR2 Won't Be Backward Compatible With Original PS VR Games

Sony's new generation of PlayStation VR2 headsets is not far from us. Sony has also announced on multiple social media a few days ago that the virtual reality headset "PlayStation VR2" will be released early next year.

At present, the new generation of PS VR2 can provide about 10 games, including "Resident Evil: Village" and "Call of Horizon Mountain" and so on. However, some users feel that they can play some old PSVR games on the new machine and experience better game quality. But actually, about this... Players are probably going to be disappointed.

In the latest episode of The Official PlayStation Podcast, Hideaki Nishino, Senior Vice President of Platform Experience for PlayStation VR 2, confirmed that the PS VR2 headset does not support backward compatibility. That said, you won't be able to play your original PS VR games on the new platform.

"PS VR games are not compatible with PS VR2 because PS VR2 was designed to provide a true next-gen VR experience. PS VR2 has more advanced features such as new controllers that support haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, as well as introverted Exterior tracking, eye tracking, 3D audio, and of course HDR. This means that developing games for PS VR2 requires a completely different approach than the original PSVR."
