Sony’s PlayStation 5 has been one of the most sought-after products since its release in November. As Sony continues to ramp up production to meet demand, the company announce that its next-generation VR system is coming to the PS5. Sony touts “dramatic leaps” in performance and interactivity over its predecessor for the PS4 that will make the game worlds feel more realistic than ever.

The new VR set will connect to the PS5 with a single cord for a simpler setup and easier use. Sony’s new VR controller focuses on improved ergonomics while using key features found in the DualSense wireless controller.
Unfortunately for PlayStation fans, the new VR system won’t be launching this year as Sony says there’s a lot of development still underway. PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan told The Washington Post that PlayStation fully believes VR will become an important component of entertainment.
“I think we’re more than a few minutes from the future of VR,” Ryan said. “PlayStation believes in VR. Sony believes in VR, and we definitely believe at some point in the future, VR will represent a meaningful component of interactive entertainment. Will it be this year? No. Will it be next year? No. But will it come at some stage? We believe that.”
As for the delays for the PS5, Ryan said that Sony is “very sorry” and that “demand was greater than we anticipated.”
As demand outpaces supply for Sony’s latest console, the company is hard at work developing its next hit product.
