While we’ve seen the various virtual reality (VR) headsets in the market undergo upgrades and improvements, Sony’s PlayStation VR headset hasn’t seen that much changes, or at least until recently where Sony announced on its PlayStation Blog that there will be an updated PlayStation VR headset on its way.

According to Sony, “A hardware update to PlayStation VR is being prepared. The new version, model number CUH-ZVR2, features an updated design that enables the stereo headphone cables to be integrated with the VR headset and a slimmer, streamlined connection cable.  There’s also an updated Processor Unit that supports HDR pass through, enabling users to enjoy HDR-compatible PS4 content on a TV without having to disconnect the Processor Unit in between the TV and the PS4 system. This function can be used only when the VR headset is turned off.”

However it seems that for now this new model will be limited to Japan where it is expected to be launched on the 14th of October and where it will be priced at 44,980 Yen where it will be sold as a “PlayStation VR with PlayStation Camera Bundle”. For gamers in the US, not to worry as Sony has stated that the headset will be launched in North America at a later date that has yet to be determined, but hopefully it shouldn’t take too long.
