Sony is preparing a new model of PSVR

There Are Now Over 100 PlayStation VR Games Available

However, this can only be used when the VR headset is turned off.

The updated headset will also have a new Processor Unit which offers HDR pass-through. Previously, you needed to plug your headphones into a panel incorporated into the headset's primary cable, which was prone to tangling. The connection cabling for the headphones has also been made slimmer in an effort to reduce the PS VR's over all profile.

The updated version of the PlayStation VR North American release date will be announced at sometime in the coming days.

Sony has confirmed via its U.S. blog that the PlayStation VR unit is getting a minor hardware update. In other words, users will not have to disconnect the unit in order to enjoy HDR-enabled content.

For those wondering how to tell the difference between the old and new PlayStation VR models, Sony will be making "slight" changes to the packaging.

Sony's PlayStation VR has by far been the most successful high-end VR headset.

Iowa State rallies to defeat Texas Tech
With the offseason additions, added experience and more depth, the Red Raiders are improved on that side of the ball. Right before halftime, Tech scored a field goal to tighten the gap to 21-17 with Oklahoma State still in the lead.

Unfortunately, Sony is also switching up the cables in this new PSVR, meaning that you won't be able to use this processing unit with existing headsets. Additionally, the company has announced that the new upgraded VR has HDR passthrough support. With the new processor unit, they'll only have to turn off the headset to do the same.

Yes, all PS VR games are compatible with both PS VR models.

This ensures that Sony will continue to support the PlayStation VR, at least in the near-term.

Pricing of PSVR and its various bundles will remain the same when the new version begins rolling out.

However, its main piece of advice was to tell people to look for the change in model number - something that's likely to cause confusion given there's only a single different digit between them.
