The Basic PlayStation VR Hardware

It’s worth mentioning that unlike with other consoles, the only headset that’s compatible with PlayStation VR is Sony’s headset. Consoles like the Switch can be played through third-party headsets, but the software that runs PlayStation VR is not compatible with other headsets.

Setting Up PlayStation VR

You will need four additional items to set up PlayStation VR:

Once these items are connected and the headset and console are both powered on, you will need to configure your camera. The camera will need to be placed on a level surface. From here, you can configure it in the Settings menu. Make sure your camera is angled and focused at where you will be playing your game so the system can properly track the controller movements.
