Sonys opdaterede PlayStation VR er strømlinet & har HDR passthrough

02 Oct 2017 | Rasmus Larsen |

Sony har i dag annonceret en opdateret version af PlayStation VR, som har et strømlinet design. Den eksterne boks blokerer heller ikke længere HDR imellem PS4 og TV.

Lidt overraskende har Sony valgt at opdatere PlayStation VR-headsettet, som udkom sidste år. Den nye version er grundlæggende samme headset, men designet er blevet strømlinet, så der er færre kabler og nogle andre justeringer.

- “New version, model number CUH-ZVR2, features an updated design that enables the stereo headphone cables to be integrated with the VR headset and a slimmer, streamlined connection cable,” sagde Sony.

En anden vigtig ændring er, at “processor unit” – den eksterne kontrolboks – ikke længere blokerer HDR imellem PlayStation 4 og tv-skærm. Dette har været en frustrerende begrænsning for ejere af HDR-skærme, som har været nødsaget til at frakoble PlayStation VR hver gang spil i HDR skulle sendes mod tv’et.

- “There’s also an updated Processor Unit that supports HDR pass through, enabling users to enjoy HDR-compatible PS4 content on a TV without having to disconnect the Processor Unit in between the TV and the PS4 system. This function can be used only when the VR headset is turned off.”

Sony har ikke bekræftet den europæiske lanceringsdato, men siger, at ”prisen på PS VR bundles forbliver uændret”. I Japan lanceres det opdaterede VR-headset i midten af oktober.

PlayStation VR revision 2

Is there a new PlayStation VR model? How is it different?
A hardware update to PlayStation VR is being prepared. The new version, model number CUH-ZVR2, features an updated design that enables the stereo headphone cables to be integrated with the VR headset and a slimmer, streamlined connection cable. There’s also an updated Processor Unit that supports HDR pass through, enabling users to enjoy HDR-compatible PS4 content on a TV without having to disconnect the Processor Unit in between the TV and the PS4 system. This function can be used only when the VR headset is turned off.
When will the new PS VR model become available in North America? How much will it be?
We will share details on the launch timing in North America at a later date. The pricing of the PS VR bundles will remain the same.
How can I distinguish between the old PS VR headset and the new one when I’m purchasing?
The packaging for PlayStation VR will change slightly when the new model hits stores. To differentiate, look for the model number printed on the box. The previous PS VR’s model number is CUH-ZVR1, and the new PS VR’s model number is CUH-ZVR2. Also, the product image on the packaging will be updated to show changes on the new model, like the integrated headphones on the VR headset.
If I already own a PS VR, can I swap out my old Processor Unit with the updated one?
Because the cables of CUH-ZVR1 and CUH-ZVR2 are different, you cannot swap the Processor Units.
Are the PS VR games I already own compatible with the new model?
Yes, all PS VR games are compatible with both PS VR models.
