Sony clarifies PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset compatibility with PlayStation VR

PlayStation-Gold-20th-Anniversary-Edition-3Sony has clarified the compatibility between PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset and PlayStation VR. In Episode 32 of the PS I Love You XOXO podcast, Greg Miller revealed that a representative from Sony told him that the two accessories can be used at the same time on the PlayStation 4.

This is because the processing unit of the PlayStation VR only takes up one of the two available USB ports, leaving the other port available for the PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset.

For the uninformed, the PlayStation Gold uses a wireless connection as it comes with an USB adaptor that must be plugged into the PS4. If you are interested, you can purchase the first-party gaming headset via this link on Amazon.

The PlayStation VR is Sony’s attempt at virtual reality gaming. The company previously confirmed that the product will be released sometime in October for the North American region.

Some of the announced games for the virtual reality accessory includes the following: Ace Combat 7, Adrift, Battlezone, Classroom Aquatic, Dead or Alive Xtreme 3, Dreams, DriveClub, Eagle Flight, EVE: Valkyrie, Golem, Gran Turismo Sport, Job Simulator, Loading Human, London Heist, The Modern Zombie Taxi Co., The Playroom VR, Project Cars, Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin, RIGS: Mechanized Combat League, Rez Infinite, Robinson: The Journey, Summer Lesson, Tekken 7, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, White Day and World War Toons.
