Sony Is Offering A PlayStation Credit Card With Custom Game-Based Designs

Sony has unveiled an updated version of its PlayStation VR headset, set to arrive in Japan first before making its way to the USA and Europe. "Because the cables of CUH-ZVR1 and CUH-ZVR2 are different, you can not swap the Processor Units", Sony said in an FAQ on the new PS VR model.

The connection cable to the PS4 is now also thinner, and the Processor Unit has been upgraded, meaning you no longer have to unplug it to see HDR content.

This was made possible thanks to the new Processor Unit inside the PS VR headset, which also allows for the biggest technical improvement. If you're wondering what's worth playing on Sony's VR headset, check out our roundup of the best PlayStation VR games.

Sony has announced that it's updating the design of the PS VR headset offering a more streamlined, HDR compatible, headset for the PlayStation 4. For users of the old PSVR, headphones had to be connected via a 3.5mm port on the side of the remote some way down the cable. Sony will print the model number on the box, making some small aesthetic changes to packaging as well.

The changes are the first significant updates since the original headset, which has the model number CUH-ZVR1, first went on sale a year ago. In other words, users will not have to disconnect the unit in order to enjoy HDR-enabled content. None of the less, the new design will surely make VR gaming more comfortable specially the earphone plug-in and directly HDR support. In Japan, the updated VR headset (in a bundle with the PlayStation Camera) will cost ¥44,980 (about $400).

Pricing of PSVR and its various bundles will remain the same when the new version begins rolling out.

Unfortunately, Sony didn't offer any information regarding the release date of the Sony PlayStation VR.
