Not sure what you are trying to say here.  I think you agree that there is no support for "native PS5 games running on PSVR1".  So a logical conclusion is that they only support PSVR1 running PS4 games in backwards compatibility mode.

The PSVR is just a headset display, so there is no particular reason that PS5 games could not target it.  Maybe Sony will allow developers to do so in future.

As there were no VR titles in the PS5 launch line up, and the PSVR1 needs an extra adaptor, and it still isn't clear if people will be forced to upgrade to PSVR2 to play PS5 VR games, I'd say that it is fair to say that Sony's messaging is a bit disjointed.

What exactly is the disjointed message? The PSVR runs all the VR titles that come out on PS4 and PS Store. If you have a PS5, it runs all those games as well, and no titles have been announced to require anything PS5 specific outside of the PS4 cam adaptor, which Sony is giving for free to everyone requiring it.

So you are creating this “disjointed message” out of thin air, and trying to make an issue over nothing. As for the PS5 not targeting the current PSVR, why should they alienate the majority of PSVR owners using the PS4 for these games?

It wouldn’t make sense to make VR titles that leave out the users from the gen the peripheral is made for.

So here's what I think makes sense:  

You thought that PS5 games could run with PSVR1, and posted that article without reading it.  When I pointed out the article said that it was backward compatibility, you started attacking me rather than changing the subject or admitting you were wrong.

That’s not what happened. Either you have reading comprehension issues, or you’re another case of projection.

I provided a link that shows what the PS5 can do for the current PSVR headset. I also explained why there’s no reason for developers  to make PS5 exclusives for that headset when the console will get its own VR headset made to harness its specific architecture down the line. And finally, how it doesn’t make sense to target a fraction of the PSVR’s less than 10 million userbase just so you can see what a PS5 exclusive VR game could look like on it. This is rendered especially moot by the fact the PS5’s own VR solution is coming down the line with its specific set of features that aren’t going to simply be superficial coating upgrades like you’re asking them to make right now.

And I don’t see how I would think PS5 games could run with PSVR, seeing as there are no PS5 exclusive VR games, as I said already.

But what is indeed happening is current and upcoming PSVR games do and will run on the PS5. That’s the current messaging from Sony, and so far, there hasn’t been anything announced to detract from that.

Yes, I know a few people in my family who had trouble with this. I had trouble with headphones as they won't fit over the VR headset and my ears are shaped funny and won't hold regular earphones. 

I didn't pay any stand up games, but I remember kids trying out the deep sea dive demo and wanting to stand up and look around and me thinking omg the cables, watch the cables.

My little one used to climb on the couch to reach things in Job Simulator (we couldn't figure out how to change the height, so he realistically could not look over the desk lol). So it was more like OMG don't fall down, don't hurt the headset :p My headphones sort of fit but it's not comfortable at all. The V2 earbuds aren't bad but I prefer to just use my 5.1 surround system, sounds much better.
