Sony has announced that its upcoming PSVR2 headset for PlayStation 5 will not be compatible with games designed for the original PSVR.

So says Hideaki Nishino, SVP of Platform Experience at PlayStation, in the latest episode of the Official PlayStation Podcast (jump to the 29:10 mark). “PSVR games are not compatible with PSVR2,” he explained in response to a question from the host, “because PSVR2 is designed to provide a next-gen VR experience.”

Nishino elaborated further, claiming the new elements of the PVSR2 hardware — inside-out tracking and eye-tracking, 3D audio, a 4K HDR display, and its controller with adaptive triggers and haptic feedback — meant that ” Developing games for PSVR2 requires a very different approach than the original PSVR.”
