Sony has quietly revealed that there will be an updated PlayStation VR headset.

According to the FAQ, the new PlayStation VR headset - model number CUH-ZVR2 - will feature an updated design that integrates the stereo headphones at the back of the unit.

The hardware revision will also come with a new version of the Processor Unit, the breakout box that connects a PlayStation VR to a PS4, which supports HDR pass through. The PS VR 2 headset will be powered by a brand new processor which is capable of supporting HDR passthrough. The old model number is CUH-ZVR1.

With the dispatch of another PlayStation VR headset, Sony is evidently hoping to remain applicable and over the virtual reality advertise. However, users won't be able to just get a new processor unit for their existing headsets top achieve the same. These new features don't justify a name change, so the device will still be called simply PSVR, although Sony confirms that the new model will be identifiable through the new package and model number. The new credit card will give five times more points for PlayStation Store purchases compared to an online or cash purchase and three times the points whenever the owner uses their cell phones to pay bills.

Yes, all PS VR games are compatible with both PS VR models. Still, we'd love to see some improved tracking for the headset's 180 degree single-camera solution, or some improved motion controllers. But for North America, Sony has promised to keep the bundle prices unchanged, claims The Verge.

This ensures that Sony will continue to support the PlayStation VR, at least in the near-term.
