The Japanese multinational conglomerate, Sony, unveiled the new PlayStation VR2, the company’s latest virtual reality headset that will compete with the Meta Quest 2. The first version of the same device had made its debut back in 2016.
The device launch renews the company’s commitment to the VR space. However, the headset requires a PlayStation to run, unlike other standalone devices on the market. It features two controllers for navigation and a lens adjustment dial for matching lens distance between users’ eyes. Nevertheless, it looks much sleeker than its predecessor.
The PSVR2 also brings everted tracking to the platform to track the user’s head movements, a significant upgrade over the PSVR1. It features an OLED display that enables excellent contrast and high-quality focus. The company’s Senior Vice President, Hideaki Nishino, confirmed that the device would support 4K HDR, a 110-degree field view, and frame rates of 90/120Hz.
“PlayStation VR2 takes VR gaming to a whole new level, enabling a greater sense of presence and allowing players to escape into game worlds like never before. With the headset on and controllers in hand, players will feel a heightened range of sensations unlike any other – thanks to the creativity of the game worlds being built by our world-class developers and the latest technology incorporated into the hardware,” said Hideaki Nishino.
