Updated Sony Playstation VR headset will feature built-in sound

Sony have also confirmed that the price of the new model will stay the same as the old, keeping it one of the cheapest VR options now available.

Sony has announced that it will be releasing a brand new model of the PlayStation VR headset, with the updated version including a slimmer connection cable and allowing for easier headphone integration. For instance, the old one's model number CUH-ZVR1, and the new one is CUH-ZVR2.

Sony also touts the new ability to follow anyone, regardless of whether you are friends (subject, of course, to individual users' privacy settings).

The updated Processor Unit supports HDR pass through so that users can watch HDR-compatible content on their TV without having to disconnect their Processor Unit that lives between the PS4 console and the TV.

Sony chose not to refresh the design of its PlayStation Move motion controllers for the launch of PlayStation VR (PSVR) a year ago but, now nearing the headset's first birthday, it's decided that might've been a good idea after all.

Hurricane Maria to deliver glancing blow to North Carolina this week
The unsafe core of the storm is expected to move well east of the southeast coast of the United States during the next day or so. On the forecast track, the core of Maria will be moving well east of the United States southeast coast during the next two days.

With entire gaming industry moving towards 4K gaming and HDR support, it is obvious that PS VR 2 should support it as well and it does.

And as per the Japanese PlayStation website, the updated device will launch in the region on 14 October with a price tag of 44.980 yen, which translates to roughly $398.

In the same press release, Sony also mentioned that in order for customers to be able to get their hands on the new Sony PlayStation VR headset, the company will expand its domestic sales handling shops from 394 stores to 913 stores.

It's a welcome change, given the fact that Sony has not made any changes since the first ever VR headset was launched. A new feature, just announced today, is a website thumbnail preview for links in messages. The new headset commonly referred to as the PS VR packs numerous improvements over its predecessor.

Even though Sony already unveiled the new model, called CUH - ZVR2, it will only become available for purchase later on. The pricing for this VR Headset slipped a little. However, the headset still needs to be switched off to do this, making it about one-fourth the hassle as it was before.
