We’ve compared Sony’s newest VR headset to three of the most popular PC VR headsets out there today. How does it stack up? Find out in our PSVR 2 vs PC VR specs comparison!
A few weeks back we compared the recently-released PSVR 2 specs with those for the Quest 2 and the few bits of info we know about Project Cambria. But PSVR 2 will also face stiff competition from a range of established PC VR devices, and those that want only the graphically richest, most demanding VR experiences will be looking to make a choice in this arena (unless they’re not already streaming over Air Link, that is).
For this comparison, then, we’ve chosen three of the best-known PC VR headsets on the market today. That includes Valve’s flagship SteamVR headset, the Index, HP’s high resolution Windows MR-branded Reverb G2 and HTC’s latest PC VR powerhouse, the Vive Pro 2. We haven’t included discontinued headsets like the Oculus Rift S or devices that are aiming for the very top of the enthusiast market, like the Varjo Aero.
With that in mind, let’s get to the specs!
