- Advertisment -

Playstation VR 2‘s design has been revealed.

While PlayStation fans are still waiting for PlayStation 5‘s next-gen VR headset’s price and release date, Sony has already provided details such as the design, a confirmed game, and specifications.

A new design was introduced showing how the headset’s color matches with the PS5 and a headband-type visor that looks similar but is smaller compared to Sony’s first PSVR. The PSVR 2 has eye-tracking capabilities, high-resolution, vibrating, and is camera-equipped. It is a USB-C tether to the PlayStation 5.

Sony provided details about the expected next-gen VR headset. This is an update to Sony’s PlayStation VR release for PlayStation 4 in 2016.

The specs were revealed in January, while its VR controllers were introduced in 2021, which is similar to PS5’s DualSense controllers.

The game confirmed for release is Horizon Call of the Mountain, which will be in the same setting as Horizon Zero Dawn and Horizon Forbidden West.

The VR headset will showcase unique vibrating feedback, eye-tracking, 110-degree view, foveated rendering, and controllers with advanced haptics. 

It is compatible with headphones that come with a standard headphone jack. The four tracking cameras allow users’ movement in VR to be tracked without the use of a TV-connected camera bar. It should work similarly with other VR headsets. The built-in eye-tracking feature is expected to provide better graphics and allow eye control and eye contact. The foveated rendering focuses on where the eye’s fovea is looking to get more graphics but less pixels.

When is the release?

Sony has not confirmed an exact date yet but said that the PSVR 2 is coming out in 2022.

What’s the price?

Sony has not provided details about PSVR 2’s price yet. PlayStation VR costs USD $400. There are speculations stating that it could end up costing as much as the PlayStation 5.
