Does Oculus work on PS4?

Answered by John Hunt

So, here’s the thing. I was really excited about getting an Oculus Quest because I had heard so many great things about it. I already had a PS4, and I thought maybe I could use it with my console. But unfortunately, that’s not the case.

I plugged in my Oculus Quest to my PS4, expecting something magical to happen, but nothing did. It was just a black screen. I tried different cables and ports, but still, no luck. It was clear that the Oculus Quest was not compatible with the PS4.

I did some research to find out why this was the case. It turns out that the Oculus Quest and the PS4 are very different systems. The Oculus Quest is a standalone VR headset that runs on its own hardware and software. On the other hand, the PS4 is a gaming console with its own ecosystem and VR capabilities through the PlayStation VR.

The Oculus Quest has its own store and library of games, separate from the PlayStation Store. The games and apps on the Oculus Quest are specifically designed to work with its hardware and software, which is not compatible with the PS4.

The PlayStation VR, on the other hand, is designed to work specifically with the PS4 and PS5. It has its own set of games and apps that are optimized for the PlayStation platform. The PlayStation VR connects to the console using a separate VR processing unit and requires specific setup and configuration.

So, if you’re looking to experience VR on your PS4 or PS5, you’ll need to get the PlayStation VR. It’s the only VR headset that is compatible with the PlayStation consoles. The Oculus Quest, while a fantastic VR headset in its own right, simply won’t work with the PS4 or PS5.

I was a bit disappointed when I found out that the Oculus Quest wouldn’t work with my PS4. But I quickly realized that there were still plenty of amazing games and experiences available for the Oculus Quest. I ended up enjoying the freedom of the wireless VR experience and the wide range of games available on the Oculus Quest Store.

So, in conclusion, the Oculus Quest series is not compatible with the PS4 or PS5. If you want to enjoy VR on your PlayStation console, you’ll need to get the PlayStation VR. But if you’re open to exploring other options, the Oculus Quest series offers a fantastic VR experience with its own library of games and apps.
