PlayStation VR2 will get extra features

Some of the user experience aspects are confirmed for upcoming headset

Posted on

Sony has announced some of the new features that will be included with its next generation VR headset, PlayStation VR2.

With PS VR2, you can see your surroundings while wearing the headset with a new see-through feature. Thanks to PS VR2’s embedded front cameras, users can press the function button on the headset, or use the Card in the Control Center, to switch between viewing your surroundings, or viewing the content on PS VR2. The see-through view is just for viewing only, so there’s no recording option.

A new broadcast feature for PS VR2 will allow you to film yourself while playing, by connecting a PS5 HD Camera to the console.

The play area for PS VR2 can be customized by using the PS VR2 Sense controllers and the embedded cameras. The cameras will allow you to scan the room, while the PS VR2 Sense controllers allow you to expand and further customize the play area to fit your play style and room environment. While playing, if you get close to the boundary you have set up, you will receive a warning that you are closely approaching the play area boundary.

Lastly, there's a VR Mode and Cinematic Mode. In VR Mode, players can enjoy VR game content in a 360 view in a virtual environment. Content will be displayed in 4000 x 2040 HDR video format (2000 x 2040 per eye) with 90Hz/120Hz frame rate. In Cinematic Mode, players can view the PS5 system and UI and all non-VR game and media content on a virtual cinema screen. Content in Cinematic Mode will be displayed in 1920×1080 HDR video format with 24/60Hz and also 120Hz frame rate.

More information is promised soon, including launch date, price and additional games coming to the platform.
