This year, the ESC stage hosted announcements dedicated to the latest in electronics. As for the gaming industry, the focus was on the PlayStation VR2, but there seems to be doubts about its retrocompatibility. Will Sony’s new headset be exploited on PS4 systems? Let’s find out together.
During this official presentation, the device was described by referring exclusively to the new consoles. Having been literally called the “Next Generation VR System for PS5,” it’s natural to believe that it will have nothing to do with the past. The reason for this limit is probably to be blamed for technical progress, as the new viewer will present too advanced features even for the PS4 Pro models.
