Sony PSVR2 can be connected to PC with slight modifications

Sony’s PSVR2 headgear can now be made to function on PC, however some additional hardware is required. The inventor of the iVRy drivers, which allow a variety of seemingly incompatible VR headsets to run on PC, has disclosed that they have successfully gotten the PSVR2 to work on PC, however they note that it will require additional hardware due to Sony’s hardware design choices for the headset.

According to iVRy_VR, the Sony PSVR2 was preventing PC users from using VR modes by claiming it couldn’t do DSC.

They were able to put the headset into VR mode on the platform by modifying an AMD Open Source Linux GPU driver to force DSC. All that remains is to design some device capable of replicating the same on Windows.

However, they stressed that there is still a long way to go before PSVR2 is usable on PC. On the bright side, this is most likely the last of the main stumbling blocks, of which there have been plenty.

From here on out, they explained, it’s just reverse-engineering undocumented hardware and building drivers for it. They also stated that Sony is not actively attempting to stop the PC hack, or is not attempting to do so vigorously enough.

Sony previously stated that it is aiming to improve its reprojection technology for PSVR 2 games that run at 60 frames per second. During a Reddit AMA, Koen, the producer of sci-fi action adventure game Hubris, revealed that Sony will be improving the reprojection software used to reproject a PSVR 2 game internally running at 60 fps to 120 fps. This should presumably improve the user experience for games that operate at 60 frames per second natively.
