Sony has unveiled the names of its next-generation virtual reality system, the PlayStation VR2 (PSVR2), and the names of its new VR controller, the PlayStation VR2 Sense controller. During a press appearance at CES 2022, the tech giant disclosed the names of the new VR headgear and controllers.
Sony has announced that the product launch will not take place this year. Instead, the Sony PlayStation VR 2, often known as the Sony PS VR2, will be accessible “early next year.”
We are progressively being introduced to the new features the VR 2 will have while we wait for the introduction of the next-generation VR system. Also, Sony just released a two-minute commercial that gave people a sneak peek at the platform’s features.
PSVR2 Release Date Expected
Early 2023 will see the release of PSVR 2, according to Sony. However, since there haven’t been any significant leaks or rumours as of yet, pinpointing a more precise date isn’t exactly straightforward. One piece of information comes from industry insider Ross Young, who tweeted that Apple and Sony’s delays in shipping VR products have caused them to launch in 2023.
These include a 4K HDR display built into the headset, which should guarantee that all virtual environments seem as stunning as possible. Users would probably benefit greatly from HDR support when playing in darker game environments. The PS VR2 will also have a field of view (FOV) of 100 degrees, which will let users become more immersed in a game’s visuals.
Eye tracking and Foveated rendering
The Sony PS VR2 will also have eye-tracking technology that can recognise and track your gaze. This may be incorporated into games, as the video demonstrates, and will enable hands-free tasks like switching between weapons in shooting games. Eye-tracking seems to have a lot of potential right now, but we’ll have to wait and see how other games use it.
Sound, feedback, and more
Touch detection will be used in the Sony PS VR2 controllers to provide tactile feedback and more precise control. Along with adjustable triggers, players also receive haptic feedback on their controllers. The new headset will receive feedback as well as vibrate to notify players of in-game collisions, damage, or other events.
