PlayStation VR

Sony Interactive Entertainment has revealed PlayStation VR games will not be compatible with PlayStation VR2.

The news was confirmed by Sony Interactive Entertainment senior VP of platform experience Hideaki Nishino, who basically said PlayStation VR2 is an entirely new hardware platform, and as such the original PlayStation VR games are totally incompatible with it.

Nishino said making games for VR2 will require “a whole different approach” than the original platform, and cited its improved hardware capabilities like 4K HDR, haptic feedback, and more.

PlayStation VR2 is launching sometime in early 2023.
