Sony has detailed how owners of PlayStation VR
will be able to acquire a free PlayStation Camera adaptor that will allow their virtual reality headset to work with PS5.Sony launched a new support page
for owners of a PS VR headset (Models CUH-ZEY1 or CUH-ZEY2) to request this adaptor that will allow the PS4’s PlayStation Camera to work on PS5. The PS5’s new HD Camera is not compatible with PS VR, so this will be the only current option for those looking to bring their PS VR with them to the next-generation.
Once received, owners will be able to plug the PlayStation Camera adaptor into the USB Type-A port in the back their PS5 console and then connect the PlayStation Camera to the AUX port on the adaptor.
Those who wish to acquire one of these adaptors will need to provide their PS VR processor unit serial number, first name, last name, email address, shipping address, and phone number. Your serial number can be found on the rear panel of the PS VR processor unit.
Only one PlayStation Camera adaptor can be redeemed per household, and it is expected to begin shipping in Japan at the “end of October,” in the Americas, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Australia, and New Zealand in “Mid-November,” and in Asia in “Early December.”
The PlayStation Camera Adaptor will be covered by a manufacturer’s warranty for 12 months from the date of delivery.
