Can you use your PSVR on the PS5?

Is the PS5 equally backward compatible for the PSVR?

The PlayStation VR (PSVR) is Sony’s virtual reality headset that was developed for the PlayStation 4 back in 2016. It can run over 600 VR-compatible games on the console, including blockbuster titles like Hitman 3, Resident Evil 7, and Borderlands 2. But now that the PlayStation 5 is here, will the PSVR properly work with it?

Can you use your PSVR on the PS5?

The short answer is yes. The PS5 itself is backward compatible with PS4 games, so why wouldn't the PSVR be the same?

There’s just one catch, however—you can’t use your PS5 HD Camera with your PSVR headset. You’re going to need a PlayStation Camera adapter. The PlayStation Camera adapter will let you connect your PS4 camera to the PS5, which the PSVR needs for motion sensing.

Fortunately, if you own a PSVR, you can contact Sony and receive one for free. Just go to the PlayStation Support page, answer a quick captcha, and enter your PSVR’s serial number as well as your shipping address. It should be delivered in a few days!
