Sony anticipates that the PS VR2 will support 20 games, including a VR version of No Man’s Sky, a Horizon spinoff, and Half-Life: Alyx.
Sony has officially revealed that the PlayStation VR2 will go on sale in the first half of 2022. The business announced the same via a tweet and an Instagram post. Only the product’s price remains concealed as a result. For the past few months, the business has been slowly releasing information about the product, including some of its design components, technical specifics, and UX aspects. Let’s review what is currently known about the PS VR2.
Sony PlayStation VR2 Specs And Features (Expected)
Sony anticipates that the PS VR2 will support 20 games, including a VR version of No Man’s Sky, a Horizon spinoff, and Half-Life: Alyx. The hardware, though, must be the main draw.
To begin with, motion tracking for PlayStation VR2 won’t require a phone. Instead, it will make use of the headset’s built-in inside-out camera. The PS VR 2 user will now be able to see their surroundings through the headset owing to this camera. This was one of the future PlayStation headset’s many user experience elements.
Other UX highlights of the device include:
Custom Play Area: By utilizing the built-in camera to scan a play area in the real world, the gadget can warn you when you are about to breach a boundary.
VR Mode: This will be a 360° virtual world with a resolution of 4000 x 2040 HDR (2000 x 2040 for each eye) and a refresh rate of 90Hz/120Hz.
Cinematic Mode: This one displays all non-VR media (including games), the PS5 system, and the user interface on a simulated movie screen. The 1920 x 1080 HDR resolution and 24/60/120 Hz refresh rate will be used for playback.
Play While Broadcasting Yourself: If you have a Sony PlayStation 5 HD camera connected, you can play while streaming your thoughts on the game and gameplay.
The PS VR 2 features a vent to allow the air escape in terms of design. Similar to the PS5 Dual Sense controller, it will include orb-shaped haptic controllers. According to reports, it also has finger-touch detection, allowing the system to recognize your replies without ever pressing a button.
The urgent issue for now, at least, is that the device only works with a PS5, and we are all aware of how difficult it is to obtain the most recent Sony console. By the time PlayStation VR2 is released, we hope the issue will be rectified.
