Nishino said in a blog post, “Our goal is to create a headset that will not only become an attractive part of your living room decor, but will also give you a great gaming experience. You will get lost in gaming so much that you will forget whether you are using a headset or controller.” Even though the PlayStation VR2 headset looks heavy in the photos, it can actually be quite comfortable. Similar to the design of the last generation, the headset band can be tweaked to fit closer or farther from the headset. However, Sony says that the new features include a lens adjustment dial, among other things.
The headset promises to offer unique vibrating feedback and controllers with advanced haptics. As well as eye-tracking, 110-degree field of view, and foveated rendering, a technique in which eye-tracking technology is used to reduce rendering workload by minimizing. This headset comes with an OLED display and frame rate of 90/120Hz which will support 4K HDR resolution.
The headset’s four tracking cameras deliver precise motion in VR without the need for a camera bar attached to the TV. That being said, the tracking should work similarly to other VR headsets. The PS VR2 also supports a standard headphone jack. Unlike Meta’s Quest 2, Sony’s next VR headset requires a USB-C cable to pair with the PS5. Along with 3D audio, there will also be support for the PS5’s Tempest 3D Audiotek.
Sony was the first to announce the PlayStation VR 2 headset at CES. The second-generation VR headset is a sequel to the original PSVR, which was made available for PlayStation 4 in 2016. The Japanese company has yet to announce the price or release date of the PlayStation VR 2 headset. The original PlayStation VR headset costs $400. Sony said the first exclusive game for the PS VR 2 will be Horizon Call of the Mountains.
