According to reports, PlayStation VR 2 will be equipped with two OLED displays that support high dynamic range (HDR) video-this should make it brighter, more vivid and have an expanded color spectrum, and be able to display deeper blacks and more powerful whites . The original PSVR headset had a standard dynamic range (SDR) LCD display. According to reports, the next-generation PlayStation virtual reality headset will also provide a 110-degree field of view, 10 degrees higher than the first model, and 20 degrees higher than the Oculus Quest 2. As for dual controllers, PSVR 2 will be equipped with sensors that can even detect the distance of your finger from the controller.
The YouTube channel PSVR Without Parole quoted Sony’s private developer conference and introduced new details of the PlayStation VR 2 designed for the next generation of PlayStation 5. UploadVR has confirmed that the meeting was held earlier this week. This has increased our understanding of PSVR 2. UploadVR revealed in May that the next-generation PlayStation VR headset will provide a resolution of 2000×2040 per eye, with a total resolution of 4K. The resolution of each eye of Quest 2 is 1832×1920. However, PSVR 2 still requires a cable.
PSVR 2 will support gaze point rendering, reduce rendering workload with the help of eye tracking, and may also perform flexible zoom resolution. In short, this should ensure better performance, because PlayStation VR 2 will only render what you are watching, thereby gaining more power from PS5. According to reports, in addition to distance tracking, the controller will also have tactile feedback, adaptive triggers, and capacitive touch sensors for the thumb, index finger, and middle finger.
As it is talking to game developers, Sony said it hopes to be able to run “hybrid” AAA games on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation VR 2. Think No Man’s Sky, Hitman 3 and Resident Evil 7 on PS4 and PS5. This will allow PS5 owners to decide whether they want to play the game in standard TV mode or virtual reality.
According to Bloomberg News, PlayStation VR 2 is expected to be launched in late 2022, but the new report says more details will be announced in early 2022.
