The PS VR2 isn’t backwards compatible, but these PSVR games will get an upgrade

Is the PS VR2 backwards compatible with PSVR 1 games?

No, PSVR 1 games won’t jump to the PS VR2 due to fundamental differences in the original console’s tracking and game design. However, at least a dozen PSVR games will upgrade to the new PS VR2 version at no additional cost, while others will give PSVR 1 owners the option for a paid upgrade.

Why Sony didn’t make the PSVR 2 backwards compatible

In an official PlayStation podcast, Hideaki Nishino, PlayStation’s SVP of Platform Experience, explained the technical reasons why older games couldn’t work on the new system. 

The original PSVR used the PlayStation Camera to track users’ movements from a fixed position. The DualShock 4 and PlayStation Move controllers sent color LED signals that the camera would detect and interpret; now, the newer PS5 DualSense controller and PS VR2 Sense controllers rely on more traditional IR signals, which the PS Camera can’t interpret.
