The official information of PSVR 2
Sony announces it successor to PlayStation VR in February 2021, although they have not shown images of the helmet. The Japanese company promises to improve resolution, field of view and representation in the game of the player’s actions. At that time they said it would not be launched in 2021, although the first development kits they will be sent to the studios soon.
A month later, in March, we saw the controls, which will replace the PS Move used in the current PlayStation VR. These are two ergonomically focused controls that feature the PS5 controller functions, the DualSense: Hepatic Response and Adaptive Triggers. In addition, they will add touch detection to record finger movement without pressing any button.
