Sony reveals redesigned PSVR headset

Models of the PS VR bearing the CUH-ZVR2 number will have the updated features and design, with Sony planing on making the packaging different so that people can tell it apart from its predecessor. 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. The previous PS VR's model number is CUH-ZVR1, and the new PS VR's model number is CUH-ZVR2.

Sony is updating the original PlayStation VR headset with some small hardware iterations-just don't expect new HMD technology or anything. Unlike the old PSVR which debuted past year, the new design does not require users to disconnect in order to view HDR content.
