The next generation of Sony’s virtual reality is taking shape. In February 2021, we reported on the announcement of a fresh VR system for PlayStation 5. A little later, Sony presented the new VR controller for the first time. Today it becomes concrete.
The next generation Sony VR system is called PlayStation VR2. PlayStation fans don’t need to get used to it (as usual). The controller for this is called PlayStation VR2 Sense – here are also familiar terms.
in the PlayStation blog Hideaki Nishino explains more to you. PlayStation VR2 should take virtual reality gaming to a whole new level. Building on the innovations of the PS5, there should be a next-gen experience with PlayStation VR2, high-resolution graphics, new sensors, and all sorts of other technical subtleties and innovations.
These include “an improved user experience with excellent visual precision, new sensory features, improved tracking and simplified setup with just one cable”.
4K HDR, a 110-degree field of view, an OLED display, a resolution of 2000×2040 per eye and a frame rate of 90 or 120 Hz are promised. New sensors follow your eyes, the headset delivers 3D audio. More specific specifications can be found in the PlayStation blog.
Of Horizon: the call of the mountain you also deliver a blockbuster for Sony fans. Created by Guerrilla Games and Firesprite, the game lets players “dive deeper into the world of Horizon”.
There are no details about the price and release period yet. Only: you probably need a PlayStation 5. Whether Sony will open the PC market with the PlayStation VR2 and thus have a much greater chance of reaching the mass market remains an exciting question for the future.
