Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan has filed a patent that seemingly depicts an input device for the upcoming PSVR 2.
The patent depicts a new input device that uses a camera and light-emitting units to track the user’s hand position. It also suggests that the the device works in conjunction with a head-mounted display, which indicates it is indeed related to PSVR 2.
While Sony hasn’t gone into any details on the headset itself yet — although we have got a look at the controller, which will use haptic feedback and adaptive triggers — the patent mentions a HMD 2 which features a front-facing camera. The patent generally seems to focus on accurately tracking the moment of the player’s hands and reflecting that in-game.
The calculation of the position and posture of the input device 100 may be performed by the information processing device mounted on the HMD2.
The calculation of the position and posture of the input device 100 may be performed by an information processing device mounted on the HMD2 or by an external information processing device (e.g., a game device separate from the HMD2 or a personal computer).
PSVR 2 has yet to attract a release date, although in the meantime, users can still play their PSVR games on the PS5 via backwards compatibility.
