Sony is looking to make its latest PlayStation virtual reality headset more useful by letting people run PC games on it. The company said it is “currently testing the ability for PS VR2 players to access additional games on PC to offer even more game variety in addition to the PS VR2 titles available through PS5.” Sony hopes to launch PC support for the PS VR2 later this year, and said it will keep an eye out for more updates.

Official PC support is something many enthusiasts have been hoping for, as the PS VR2 is a great VR headset for the most part. They were modders work in ways to make the device work with the likes of SteamVR, but official support will make things much easier.

Although Sony has announced plans to support PCs through blog post detailing some of the titles on the way for PS VR2 on PS5, it’s hard to argue that the headset has a particularly strong library of games as it stands. Sony itself released only three VR experiences for the platform since it debuted a year ago. In fact, the company hasn’t announced any future first-party games for the PS VR2. The lack of backwards compatibility with PS VR titles also limits the headset’s current library.

Some well-known developers are also cold about making PS VR2 versions of their projects. The eponymous studio behind the popular VR social space Recreation room says porting the game to PS VR2 will be very expensive.

So making it easier for people to use PS VR2 for virtual reality experiences on PC is a smart idea. They will be able to take advantage of a wider selection of games, including major players such as Half Life: Alyx, on headphones that have excellent dual OLED displays. This could help Sony shift more PS VR2 units. It also gives Sony more of a reason to release Horizon: The Call of the Mountain on PC so that the entire Horizon series is available on that platform.

Meanwhile, if Sony enables virtual desktop support, there is a possibility that PS VR2 users can access Xbox Cloud Gaming through a web browser. Wouldn’t it be something?
