PlayStation VR2 Next Generation Sony Headset Specifications Revealed

PlayStation VR2 Next Generation Sony Headset Specifications Revealed

Sony revealed the specifications for its next generation PlayStation VR2 headset for the PlayStation 5.

The PlayStation VR2 will have inside-out tracking, eye tracking, an OLED display with “4K HDR, 110-degree field of view, and foveated rendering.” Sony also revealed “Horizon Call of the Mountain” from Guerrilla and Firesprite is on the way to the headset. PS VR 2 as it is officially called works with the PS VR2 Sense controllers (which were previously revealed but not officially named) and the new headset also includes a new vibration feedback function in the headset itself.

“Headset feedback is a new sensory feature that amplifies the sensations of in-game actions from the player. It’s created by a single built-in motor with vibrations that add an intelligent tactile element, bringing players closer to the gameplay experience. For example, gamers can feel a character’s elevated pulse during tense moments, the rush of objects passing close to the character’s head, or the thrust of a vehicle as the character speeds forward,” Sony says.
