Sony has a tweaked PlayStation VR that supports HDR

The only issue is that the new processor is incompatible with original PlayStation VR headset, Sony mentioned in the PS VR FAQ, "Because the cables of CUH-ZVR1 and CUH-ZVR2 are different, you can not swap the Processor Units".

Sony revealed that a new version of the PlayStation VR package is in the works. The packaging will look slightly different but do check the model number (CUH-ZVR2 for the new one versus CUH-ZVR1 for the old one) to make sure you're getting the latest version.

There is no release date for the west, at the moment, but the new model will launch in Japan on October 14th. The new headset commonly referred to as the PS VR packs numerous improvements over its predecessor.

Are the PS VR games I already own compatible with the new model? On the original PSVR design, the headphone jack is part of the volume and power control box on the audio cable.

As well as this, model number CUH-ZVR2 will come with an updated Processor Unit that supports HDR pass through. The connection cabling for the headphones has also been made slimmer in an effort to reduce the PS VR's over all profile. The design has been streamlined and improved in general, and you'll also notice the headset for audio is now built into the headset with some typical Sony-looking earbuds actually attached to the PSVR unit. Notwithstanding, the cost was dropped a little with the goal of making the headset more moderate, enabling gamers to appreciate well-known amusements, for example, Robinson: The Journey and Farpoint, Superhot VR et cetera. The new VR Headset will be bundled with the PlayStation Camera that will cost ¥44,980 which is around $400 in the global market.

In a blog entry, Sony stated, that It has been just about a year since the dispatch of PlayStation VR. It did mention, however, that the price of the bundle won't change when it reaches other regions too. Although it is behind Samsung in global headset sales, it had sold a total of 519,400 units before the second quarter of 2017, capturing 24.4% of the total market share, according to IDC.
