PSVR 2 Sense Controllers Have ‘Potential To Be The Best In This Current Gen,’ Says Polyarc Engineer

Speaking in the latest issue of PLAY Magazine, Brendan Walker, the principle engineer for developer Polyarc, heaped praise on the PSVR 2 Sense controllers, suggesting they have enough potential to be ‘the best this current generation.’

Walker made it clear he’s more than a little excited about the Sense controllers, which feature haptic feedback and adaptive triggers in a similar fashion to the DualSense pad for the PS5.

I am so pumped about the new controllers, because we finally have a set of high-quality VR controllers. I think that they have the potential to be the best in this current generation for a couple of reasons.

We’ve got you know, great tracking. Finally, you have two hands, which is huge, right? We’ve had to design a game that works single-handedly [DualShock 4] or dual-handedly [PlayStation Move]. So now we have two proper hands and what can you do with that?

The PSVR 2 has yet to attract a release date, but it will reportedly show up in early 2023. The headset’s design has been inspired by the PS5 family of consoles, while the controllers include finger-touch detection and feature an orb-like design.
