For those who haven’t yet purchased the PlayStation VR, Sony is releasing an updated version, model number CUH-ZVR2. Unlike the original PSVR, the new one has a new processor unit, integrated stereo earphone cables and a slimmer connection lead.

In the earlier version (CUH-ZVR1), players had to plug earphones into a separate port, and while the new version still has lots of other cables to plug in, this hardware update helps streamline the console. Because of hardware differences, however, Sony says it’s not possible to swap the old PSVR’s processor unit with the new one.
