Officially, the PlayStation VR2 virtual reality headset is not compatible with PC. The manufacturer himself talks about it and is confirmed by specialist media and bloggers. However, no one forbids connecting the device to a computer, and it even works, but only as an additional monitor. You don’t even need to install drivers. The blogger showed how a bunch of PS VR2 and PC works.

Connecting a VR headset to a PC requires a GeForce RTX 20 series, Radeon RX 6800 (XT) or RX 6900/6950 XT graphics card. These accelerators are equipped with a USB Type-C connector with support for the VirtualLink interface, which allows you to connect virtual reality headsets directly to the graphics card without additional cables. If there is no such connector on the PS VR2 graphics card, you can connect it using a special adapter like this one:

Video blogger Tyriel Wood demonstrated that the PlayStation VR2 can actually work with a PC by connecting the headset to a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card. The headset actually worked in the virtual screen mode in cinematic mode supported by the PlayStation 5, and after a few seconds of thinking, displayed the Windows desktop.

It is quite obvious that when working with Windows, the functionality of the PlayStation VR2 is limited. For example, the virtual screen does not follow the movements of the user’s head, VR headset screens display an image with a resolution of 1920 × 1080 pixels instead of the standard 2000 × 2040 pixels for each eye. Also, there is no HDR support. At the same time, PS VR2 ran at a 120Hz refresh rate and Windows recognized his microphone and headphones.

The video posted does not show this, but it is clear that Sense controllers are not supported by the Windows operating system. However, Tiriel Wood was able to run Halo Infinite using an Xbox controller on the device.
