- A long time ago, Sony announced a new virtual reality headset for the PS5 called Playstation VR2.
- Now the manufacturer showed the first official photos.
- The design follows the curved and extravagant look of the console.
The PlayStation VR2 Headset Specifications I have already informed Sony. The question has remained open as to what the hardware that is supposed to open the door to virtual worlds will look like on PS5. Sony has now presented its eager fan community with official footage of the successor to the PS4 VR headset for the first time.
Data glasses control devices Play Station VR2 was already known as black. The new images show it off in white with black sides to match the smart glasses, which can be seen officially for the first time on the PlayStation Blog. The design follows the clean, curved look of the console.
The spherical shape of the console and headset shows Hideaki Nishino, Senior Vice President of Platform Planning and Management On the PlayStation Blog. The design “sophistically represents a 360-degree view that players enter into virtual reality.” With its emphasis on roundness, it should also form a deliberate contrast with the PS5’s flat edges — similar to the DualSense controller and Pulse 3D headset. According to Nishino, data glasses should become an “attractive part of your living room furniture” and “also allow you to immerse yourself completely in the game world until you almost forget you’re using a headset or console.”

To meet the latest claim, Sony designers have been vociferous Blog post Great emphasis is placed on the ergonomics. The goal was to “ensure a comfortable fit for a variety of head sizes”. This was based on positive feedback on the ergonomics of the first virtual reality goggles.
The individually adjustable brow has also been moved over from its predecessor, which can be positioned closer to or further away from the face. The lens adjustment wheel is new, which allows to adjust the distance between the lens and the eyes more precisely. Sony promises an improved vision of this. Ventilation, located in a small gap between the top and front of the eyebrow, should also be an innovation. It is designed to prevent foggy lenses.
The placement of the headphone jack is already familiar from the previous model. In general, the design is less thin and the weight is slightly lower. Sony is proud of this latter achievement, despite incorporating new features such as a vibration response engine within the headset. For example, you should simulate when the character hits his head. The manufacturer has yet to reveal how heavy the entire VR2 is.
But what about internal values? Sony promises graphics fidelity in 4K HDR and modern display, improved tracking (including inside-out tracking without an additional camera on the console), a variety of sensors and intuitive control with the new Sense controllers. Whereas the first generation PlayStation VR offered a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels per eye, the new generation should display 2,000 x 2,040 pixels. Depending on the situation, frame rates from 90 or 120 Hz should be possible. The drawback of the first generation of virtual reality glasses has also been eliminated: the annoying tangle of previous cables is no longer necessary, since the PS VR2 is only connected to the console via a USB-C cable.
In the blog, Sony also mentioned that some game developers have already received a VR2 development kit to work on “exhilarating gaming experiences in virtual reality.” The question remains as to when PlayStation VR2 will be available to gamers and how much it will cost. Many players hope that the new data glasses will improve the Christmas season at the latest.
