Sony isn’t wasting any time with starting to talk about PlayStation VR2 now that we’re in 2022. Like for example, that’s the official title of what we’ve all been calling PSVR 2 up until now.
It’s the next generation for VR, for PS5 consoles with a single cord setup. Among other features, which have all been detailed in the most recent PlayStation Blog post after their announcement at CES.
The controllers which we all saw some time ago are called PlayStation VR2 Sense Controllers, which falls in line with the DualSense on PS5.
Some of the standout features are the fact that the headset will output 4K HDR, with 110-degree field of view. The display within the headset is an OLED, and players can expect smooth frame rates up to 120hz.
PS VR2 also removes the need for an external camera with headset-based controller tracking. PS VR2 even has eye tracking, to allow for even a simple look to be used as an extra input.
