Does PSVR 2 Support HDR? Yes, yes it does.

Yes, the PSVR2 supports content in HDR. The PSVR2 has two modes, the Cinematic Mode, and the VR Mode:

  • Cinematic Mode: This mode in PSVR2 allows you to view all the non-VR games, PS5, UI, and other media content on a virtual screen. This content is displayed in 1920 x 1080 HDR quality only on the VR headset. There won’t be any audio or image output on the TV in Cinematic Mode. 
  • VR Mode: The VR mode allows you to enjoy VR games in a 36-degree view in a virtual setting. All the content in VR mode is displayed in 4000 x 2040 HDR quality. 

HDR in PSVR 2 allows you to have a more realistic display. And since your eyes are closer to the display with a headset on, you can also easily identify any imperfections in the image. 

So with the latest PSVR 2, you can enjoy deeper and more vivid colors than before. Add to that the refresh rate of 120Hz and a wide field of view, and you will find yourself fully immersed in the virtual setting.
