PSVR On PS5 Seemingly Currently Available Only Via Backwards Compatibility

It looks like PSVR support on PS5 is currently only available through PS4 backwards compatibility.

In a statement issued to UploadVR, Sony reiterated that the PSVR was a backwards-compatible device, noting that the company has “not announced PS5 titles for PSVR.”

UploadVR uses the example of Hitman 3, which touted a PSVR mode back when it was announced earlier this year. According to a statement from Sony, players will need to buy the PS4 version of Hitman 3 to make use of the game’s PSVR mode. They’ll also need the official PS5 PSVR adaptor and the old PlayStation Camera so that the peripheral will be compatible with the new next-gen console.

It looks to be a similar situation with Hello Games’ No Mans Sky on PS5. The PlayStation Blog post for the game notes that the game is fully playable in PSVR on PlayStation 5 “by virtue of its backwards compatibility functionality.”

The good news is that both of these games will offer free next-gen upgrades, granted you own the PS4 version of No Man’s Sky or Hitman 3. That said, it’s not clear whether you’ll need to have PS4 and PS5 versions installed in order to play both in VR and in higher quality non-VR modes.

You’ll still be able to get access to PSVR experiences on PS5, it just looks like for now, the PSVR support won’t be native – it will leverage the PS5’s backwards-compatibility features instead. Sony hasn’t announced any official plans for a PSVR 2 or a revision of the PS4 PSVR headset for the PS5.
