PSVR Cannot Play PS5 Games, Only Runs Via Backward Compatibility

If you want to play VR, you'll have to stick with the PS4 versions of games.

How the PSVR headset will work with the PS5 has been a bit of a mystery for a while, especially with the PS5’s HD Camera not supporting PSVR (though Sony is shipping adapters to PSVR owners). Sony have now confirmed details, and they’re a bit disappointing.

A Sony representative recently told Upload VR that no PSVR games have been announced for the PS5, and that if you want to play Hitman 3 in VR, you will have to play the PS4 version of the game via backward compatibility. Similarly, when No Man’s Sky’s next-gen upgrade was recently announced, Hello Games confirmed that it would be playable in VR only via backward compatibility.

What this means, in simple terms, is that PS5 games will not natively support PSVR, and if you do want to play VR-compatible games, you’ll have to play their PS4 versions. The specifics of how this will work with cross-progression and free next-gen upgrades, as well as whether PSVR support will eventually be added to PS5 games, haven’t yet been confirmed.

PS5’s backward compatibility will boost certain PSVR games’ frame rates, so there is that.
