The hardware details for the next PlayStation VR2 were just disclosed by Sony. Images of the PS VR2 Sense controllers were leaked at the time. Sony has released the first glimpse at the virtual reality headset. PS VR2’s design is inspired by the PS5, which explains the black and white colour palette. In terms of performance and comfort, the PS VR2 is a significant leap over its predecessor. With a 110-degree field of view and better eye-tracking, the headset can handle 4K gaming at up to 120Hz frame rate.
The PlayStation VR2 will still require a wired setup with a USB-C connector to connect to the PS5. Users may change the distance between their eyes and the lens using the adjustable lens dial that comes with the headset. In addition to being thinner and lighter than its predecessor, the PS VR2 headgear is also more comfortable to use. In addition, the headset has a vented design that improves ventilation.
“When I initially started working on the design for the PlayStation VR2 headset, one of the areas I wanted to focus on first was the notion of putting a vent in the headgear to let the air escape, similar to the vents on the PS5 console that enable ventilation,” Yujin Morisawa, Senior Art Director at SIE, stated.
Our engineers came up with this idea as a means to provide ventilation while players are absorbed in their VR games and avoid the lens fogging up. To achieve this, I worked on a number of design options, and as you can see in the final design, there is a little area between the scope’s top and front surfaces that houses the integrated ventilation.”
Sony has yet to reveal the PS VR2’s release date and price. The business earlier announced a new game for PS VR2 called Horizon Call of the Mountain, which is a brand-new chapter in the Horizon genre. The game is built particularly for PS VR2, and the protagonist will be a new character. Aloy and other characters from the Horizon series will appear, as well as new characters introduced in Horizon Call of the Mountain.
