Sony is updating its PlayStation VR headset with a new version that brings small but necessary changes to the hardware. The Japanese firm intends to keep it straightforward with respect to the plan of the headset. In addition, the Processor Unit now supports High Dynamic Range (HDR) pass-through.

The updated FAQ from Sony confirms that all PSVR games are compatible with both headsets. With CUH-ZVR2 as its official model name, among the changes that the company has done to the refreshed model is the new routing for the stereo headphones. The previous PS VR's model number is CUH-ZVR1, and the new PS VR's model number is CUH-ZVR2.

Last September, Sony updated all PS4 systems with HDR capabilities but PSVR users had to unplug the external PSVR Processor Unit first in order to enjoy HDR content on their TV. It is worth to take note of that this capacity can be utilized just when the VR headset is turned off.

Sony is quietly introducing a new model of the PlayStation VR, which streamlines many features from the original. The new VR Headset will be bundled with the PlayStation Camera that will cost ¥44,980 which is around $400 in the global market. Regardless of when they arrive, however, all bundle pricing will remain the same, Sony's confirmed.

Microsoft is having a major Mixed Reality event tomorrow, and while it is mostly expected to focus on Windows Mixed Reality headsets, a "One More Thing" which includes a Wireless Xbox One X VR headset would be a very welcome surprise.

Along with that cable, the hardware is getting a new processor unit.

Deals figures uncover that Sony is in front of its opponents by a critical edge in the VR class. Although it is behind Samsung in global headset sales, it had sold a total of 519,400 units before the second quarter of 2017, capturing 24.4% of the total market share, according to IDC. That should mean that the cheapest bundle for the revised PS VR headset will continue on at $399. To mark the occasion, it will launch a series of videos celebrating the device and the popular achievements.

Here's the best part: you can watch all the fun from the comfort of your home, office or... home office, via playstation.com/pgw, Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook.
