The Playstation 5 gets its own VR-headset. While there are no details about the product yet, it is confirmed that it will come with only one cable to connect to the console.

In Sony's blogpost we can read that the new VR headset will be the successor of the PSVR. All knowledge from the PSVR for PS4 will be used as the basis of the development of the new system. This would make it able to come with an even better product that will give players an even better experience. Details about the resolution or the field-of-view of the upcoming VR-headset didn't get exposed yet.

What got exposed already is the fact that the VR-headset will get a separate controller. That controller will have some important features that also can be found on the PS5 DualSense controller. According to Sony, the headset will only have one cable to connect with the PS5 system which will make the setup much easier. For the current PSVR, there is still a separate adapter that has to be used. 

It is not known yet when the system is going to hit the market. Sony says that it is still too early to tell because there's still a lot of work to be done. "It won't be for 2021," they say.
