So you've snagged a shiny new PlayStation VR2, or maybe you're just itching to jump into the world of VR. Either way, you've probably got a few questions buzzing around your head. Fear not, future astronaut, because we're here to answer your most common PS VR2 queries! 

1. Can I play VR1 games on VR2?

Almost! While PS VR2 isn't directly backward compatible with PS VR1 games, Sony's working on a program that might allow some PS VR1 titles to be playable on PS VR2 through patches. Stay tuned for updates to enjoy your favourite titles on the new system.

2. Can I watch movies on PS5 VR2?

Absolutely! PS VR2 boasts a "Cinematic Mode" that transforms the headset into a virtual movie theater so you can enjoy watching movies and TV shows. Whether you’re streaming from your go-to service or popping in a Blu-ray, you can just imagine chilling in a massive virtual cinema with popcorn in hand, for an ultra-immersive movie night!

3. How can I watch VR videos on PS5 VR2?

While there isn't a dedicated VR video app for PS VR2 yet, some streaming services are developing VR features. In the meantime, you can still enjoy VR videos using apps like YouTube VR or other VR video players available on the PlayStation Store. Simply download the app, find VR content, and get ready to be transported into the heart of the action with 360-degree experiences!

4. Is PS VR2 compatible with PC?

PS VR2 is currently a PS5 exclusive! It's designed to work perfectly with the PS5's power for the smoothest VR experience. While there might be ways to use it on PC in the future, right now, the PS5 is your best bet to enjoy PS VR2.

5. Is PS VR2 compatible with PS4?

Our apologies to PS4 players! PS VR2 is not compatible with PS4. The advanced hardware in PS VR2 requires the power of the PS5 to deliver its best performance and graphics.

6. Can I play all PS5 games on VR2?

Not every PS5 game works with the PS VR2. Only games designed specifically for VR or updated to work in VR will let you experience them in that immersive way. Don't worry though, there's a whole library of awesome VR titles growing for PS VR2 like the PlayStation VR2 Horizon Call of the Mountain Bundle! It includes the super cool game "Horizon Call of the Mountain," giving you a perfect starting point for your VR journey!

7. Do I need a PS Camera for VR2?

Unlike the PS VR1, you won't need a separate PS Camera to use the PS VR2. The headset itself has built-in cameras that track your movements and the PS VR2 Sense controllers. This means a smoother setup and a cleaner playing space, letting you jump straight into the VR action without any fuss.

8. How long does it take to charge VR2 controllers?

Charging your PS VR2 Sense controllers is easy with the PlayStation VR2 Sense Controller Charging Station. It only takes about 1.5 to 2 hours to fully charge them, so you can spend less time waiting and more time conquering virtual worlds.

9. How much is a PS VR2?

The price of a PS VR2 can vary depending on where you live and any current promotions, but if you're in Australia, Gamory's got a sweet deal! We’re offering the PS VR2 for only $899 AUD, which is one of the best prices you'll find down under.

10. Is PlayStation VR2 worth it?

PS VR2 is a total game-changer for VR! It's like a massive upgrade from the older version, with way sharper graphics, smoother tracking, and even cooler controllers that add to the experience. Basically, if you're into VR or want to try something super immersive, PS VR2 is totally worth it. Get ready for mind-blowing games and feel like you're right in the action!
