Any help with using a VR Headset to play console games through HDMI?

I don’t care for actual VR use, I literally just want a face mounted display that I can hook up my xbox or PlayStation to and relax in theater mode. Regular “2D” games, not VR.
 
I guess decent quality, refresh rate, and focus would be important. As long as I can play it while it’s charging.
 
I basically wanna play any of my games, but through a headset so I can get that immersive theater experience. I am not interested in streaming games to the headset, just direct HDMI connection https://xender.vip/ .
 
I am struggling to find good info on this anywhere.
 
Any suggestions for a headset that would work for this, and doesn’t cost a total arm and leg? Maybe something less than $400?

Not sure if the developer forums are the right place to ask. You'll have more luck in the general VR Forums https://communityforums.atmeta.com/t5/Talk-VR/bd-p/General

PSVR2 does what you want for PlayStation5 games.
And Quest3 with the free Steam Link app (https://www.meta.com/en-gb/experiences/5841245619310585/) will stream from a PC to your headset. Not just VR games but any game in your library.

You can try using an external HDMI capture card attached to the console AND a computer/laptop. Then using Virtual Desktop stream your gameplay to your HMD. It's not ideal. There isn't a method to do HDMI directly into a headset.

If you want to play specifically older titles you own for consoles, you can achieve this with emulation on a computer or Mac and then cast your content to the HMD or with a wired connection into the headset.
