Sony announces an updated PlayStation VR headset

Sony has announced an updated version of its PlayStation VR headset with two minor but important upgrades. For those unaware, the PS VR headset hit the market in October 2016 and is somewhat similar to Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, through which gamers can enjoy high-graphics games. However, unlike Rift and Vive, which needs a high-end gaming PC to function, the PS VR works with PS4 gaming consoles.

The new PlayStation VR carries the model number CUH-ZVR2, and features an updated design. To start with, the CUH-ZVR2 features a slimmer streamlined connection cable, and the stereo headphone cables is now integrated within the VR headset, for a more cleaner design.

Secondly, there's an updated processor unit that supports HDR pass through, enabling users to enjoy HDR compatible PS4 content on a TV without having to disconnect the Processor Unit in between the TV and the PS4 system. This function can be used only when the VR headset is turned off.

Sony says that the packaging of the new PlayStation VR will change slightly. The new model number will be printed on the box, and also the product image on the packaging will be updated to show changes on the new model.

The updated PlayStation VR has been priced at $400, but there is no word on its availability. Meanwhile, earlier this month, the original Sony PS VR headset, got a price cut of Rs. 4,000 in India and is now available for Rs. 37,990.
