Sony's idea on the design of the next-generation virtual reality gear it to keep it simple. For users of the old PSVR, headphones had to be connected via a 3.5mm port on the side of the remote some way down the cable.

If there is something that Sony did right is that they supported the headset unlike no other company. It'll remain compatible with all PS VR games and peripherals. These include the new Family option for parental control, changes to the follow option, and much more. The new Sony PlayStation VR comes with updated PSVR Processor Unit.

Current owners have also been warned that because the cables of CUH-ZVR1 and CUH-ZVR2 are different, you can not swap the Processor Units. This feature allows users to enjoy HDR-compatible PS4 content on a TV without the need to disconnect the processor unit in between the switch between TV to PS4.

And as per the Japanese PlayStation website, the updated device will launch in the region on 14 October with a price tag of 44.980 yen, which translates to roughly $398. The updated version of the PlayStation VR North American release date will be announced at sometime in the coming days.

However, Sony warns that this function can be used only when the VR headset is turned off. In addition to House's former position, Kodera will also take on the position of representative director and president of Sony Interactive, Inc., which is the Japan-based legal entity of SIE.

Secondly, the company has improved the processor unit as well. In comparison, Oculus managed to sell 246,900 units (an 11.6% market share), while HTC sold 94,500 headsets (a 4.4% share). The second generation Sony PlayStation VR is now available in India for INR 37,990.

The US PlayStation blog confirms the update but it might not be the improvement users were expecting.
