Much like the PS5 DualSense controller, the PSVR 2 headset design features tiny PlayStation symbols to the front and back bands of the headset.
Yujin Morisawa, Sony Interactive Entertainment’s Senior Art Director, commented:
When I started to work on the design for the PlayStation VR2 headset, one of the areas I wanted to focus on first was the idea of creating a vent in the headset to let air out, similar to the vents on the PS5 console that allows airflow. Our engineers came up with this idea as a good way to allow ventilation and avoid having the lens fog up while players are immersed in their VR games.
I worked on many design concepts to achieve this, and in the final design, you can see there is a little space in between the top and front surface of the scope that contains the integrated ventilation.
I am really proud of how this turned out and the positive feedback I have gotten so far. I hope our PlayStation fans will also agree, and I can’t wait for them to try it out.
Sony’s PlayStation Blog post reveals that the design team behind the PS5 made the console with the next generation VR headset in mind, hence similarities in its look and feel. However, there’s more emphasis on roundness to the PSVR 2 design, echoing the edges of the DualSense and Pulse 3D headset.
Our goal is to create a headset that will not only become an attractive part of your living room decor, but will also keep you immersed in your game world, to the point where you almost forget you are using a headset or controller.
The PSVR 2 has yet to attract a release date.
