- August 24, 2022
PlayStation affirmed on Instagram the previous night that the PlayStation VR2 will launch in mid-2023. That denotes a six year gap since the original PS VR’s release in 2016. That VR set was just viable with PS4 and PS5 consoles and used an adapter, while the VR2 will just work with PlayStation 5 consoles and works with a single USB cord.
The VR2 was reported in January, and we got a first glance at the virtual reality set one month after the fact in February. This first look acquainted clients with a headset that seems to be like the past model, yet in addition has a few new features, similar to a lens adjustment dial and new vent design which ought to work on the airflow and keep the headset cool. The headset is additionally slimmer than the past model.
“Our goal is to create a headset that will not only become an attractive part of your living room decor, but will also keep you immersed in your game world, to the point where you almost forget you are using a headset or controller,” PlayStation Senior Vice President Hideaki Nishino wrote in a July blog post.
We likewise got a gander at the client experience for the VR2 in July. This update uncovered a transparent component utilizing the headset’s cameras. On the other hand, you can likewise set up a ‘customized play area,’ and that implies the VR2 will filter your space and put down up play region stopping points to hold you back from stumbling over your sofa (through a warning). For the decorations out there, the update likewise referenced a transmission highlight, so you can film yourself while playing games.
With an end goal to make you ‘forget you are using a headset or controller,’ like VP Nishimo composed, the VR2 guarantees OLED screens, a 2000 x 2040 resolution per eye, and 90/120Hz refresh rate options.
There are presently twenty PS VR2 games being developed, as per PlayStation’s site. These games incorporate the PS VR2 exclusive Horizon Call of the Mountain as well as ports of Resident Evil Village, The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners – Chapter 2: Retribution, and No Man’s Sky. The cost for the VR2 is still yet to be known.
