The State of Playstation VR in 2021
Though the original Playstation VR was released in 2016, it is still the most current and up to date VR hardware from Sony. At the end of 2019, over 5 million units of the PS VR headset had been sold.
Sony announced that the Playstation VR headset would be completely backwards compatible with the Playstation 5 console. To make PSVR work on the PS5, you need a free cable adapter from Sony.
A lot of rumors have been coming out about new Playstation VR 2 hardware. New patents by Sony have been filed, which have provided rumors about the new system. Sony has always said that PSVR2 would not launch alongside the console or take attention away from it.
We expect to see new PSVR hardware as early as Fall 2021.
Grab the PS4-to-PS5 VR adapter cable and other top Playstation VR accessories below.
#1. PS4-to-PS5 VR Camera Adapter Cable

This allows the use of PlayStation VR when playing supported PS4 games on a PS5 console. Once setup, you can play any games that require PlayStation Move or PlayStation VR aim controllers.
The reason this cable is required is because the new PS5 camera does not work with PS4 VR hardware. The adapter cable will allow you to install the PS4 camera alongside the new one for virtual reality gameplay.
Once a new Playstation VR 2 launches, it will be completely compatible with the new console. Then, this adapter cable will no longer be necessary.
