If you already know what virtual reality is, you know just how fun it can really be, and sometimes can be a little scary too. Whether you are watching a horror or comedy movie, or playing a racing or shooting game, using a virtual reality headset can really bring things to a whole new level.
It allows you to immerse yourself in whatever world you choose, so instead of just watching something the old fashioned way, it actually feels like you are inside of the game or movie.
It really is a great experience. With that being said, virtual reality tech is pretty new, and people still have a few questions about it. One of the most popular virtually reality systems is for the PlayStation, specifically the PlayStation 4.
Now, one thing that people are a bit confused about is whether or not PSVR works on PC. So, let’s take a closer look at this issue right now and get to the bottom of things once and for all.
Does PSVR Work On PC?
Well, originally the PlayStation Virtual Reality system did not work for PC or personal computers. This had a lot of folks up in arms, mainly because the PSVR is not the cheapest thing around, and people thought that it should be able to do cross platform compatibility, which is fair.
After a few short months, a few eager and ingenious developers did come up with a program, one that allows you to use your PSVR for PC. The company is called Odd Sheep Games, and they just released the Trinus PSVR. This system allows you to connect your PSVR to your computer and use it to play Steam games.
So, the short answer to the question of the day is, yes, PSVR does work on PC, to a certain extent. If you download the Trinus PSVR system, you can then install it on your computer to play games on the Steam platform. Keep in mind that at this time, it only works for Steam games. With that being said, this is much better than nothing at all.
What You Need
What is nice about the Trinus PSVR is that you don’t actually have to buy any extra hardware. Yes, you do need to have a Steam gaming account and VR friendly games, plus a PC and your PSVR headset, but that is it, besides of course the Trinus PSVR program. What is also cool here is that you can download a free trial version of this Trinus PSVR system, so you can test it out for yourself.
Downloading Trinus PSVR
Simply start up your web browser and visit the Trinus Virtual Reality website. Go to the PSVR section on the Trinus website and download the Trinus PSVR program. When the file has finished downloading, simply click on “run”, accept the user agreement, and click on install. This is really all you have to do, so it could not be any easier.
How To Set Up Your PSVR For PC Use
The next beneficial aspect of this whole process is that the PSVR, when using the Trinus PSVR system, is actually quite easy to connect to your computer. First off, plug your HDMI cable into the HDMI port on the PS4 and the other end into your PC.
You then need to plug a USB or Micro USB cable into the processing unit and plug the other end into the USB port on your PC, a USB 3.0 port if possible. Now, plug your PSVR head display into the processing unit, and then the processing unit power cable into a power outlet.
For one, some people have issues with the audio system here. If you are having issues hearing sound, or if nothing comes through at all, it is recommended that you connect your headphones to your PC, rather than the jack on the PSVR cable. You do also need to ensure that the audio is correctly set on your computer.
Moreover, some people have had issues with tracking and drifting. To try and solve this problem, make sure that the headset is on a flat and steady surface when you start the Trinus VR program, and is also pointing in the direction you are facing. Another thing you can always do is adjust the clarity using the Trinus PSVR program’s clarity slider.
There you have it guys; as long as you have this Trinus PSVR program on your computer, you can use the PSVR headset for Steam Games.
