A Sony executive confirmed Friday that the PlayStation VR 2 will not be backward-compatible with games developed for the original PlayStation VR.

Sid Shuman, senior director of content communications at Sony Interactive, asked Hideaki Nishino, senior vice president of platform experience at Sony, whether games for the original PSVR could be played on a PSVR2 kit on the Official PlayStation Podcast, episode 439 (his answer starts at 29:12).

“PSVR games are not compatible with PSVR2 because PSVR2 is designed to deliver a truly next-generation VR experience,” Nishino said. Nishino listed several “much more advanced features” in the VR2, including new controllers with haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, advanced eye tracking, and 3D audio. “That means developing games for PSVR2 requires a whole different approach than the original PSVR.”
