Sony interactive entertainment finally unveiled its next-gen VR headset in full at CES 2022, giving consumers their first look at the PlayStation VR2 Unit.
During the press conference, Sony showed more details about the PS5 accessory, including information on the controllers it will use to navigate the new VR setup, a new title designed specifically for hardware, and perhaps the most. important: the specifications. Interestingly, an article on the PlayStation blog He also notes that the PSVR 2 will have an incredibly simple setup, as you’ll only need one cable to connect directly to the PS5 console (much easier than the previous model).
PSVR2 will feature 4K HDR, 110 degree field of view images with enhanced rendering. These improved optics will be delivered via an OLED display inside the earbuds, which will deliver 2000×2040 resolution per eye, with a 90/120 Hz frame rate. This should be even better for gamers who are often they feel a little sick during virtual reality sessions.
The headphones include inside-out tracking thanks to the built-in cameras that are built into the headphones, so there’s no need for an external camera to “anchor” you when you’re gaming. The viewfinder will also be able to track your eyes and react to where you are looking, making things easier for you when you play games and offsetting some of that infamous VR nausea (in theory).
PSVR2 will also fuel Sony’s experimentation in the 3D audio space. A new headset tops the show, which it says has “a new sensory function that amplifies the sensations of the player’s actions in the game.” The goal is to make everything a little more immersive; Get your adrenaline pumping during tense moments by pumping a character’s pulse beyond you. That kind of things. And it will be achieved through motors built into the headphones themselves. Curious.
At CES, Sony also announced one of the first new games confirmed to run on next-gen headphones: Call of the mountain horizon, a spin-off of the Hoirzon series that is being jointly developed by Guerrilla Games and Firesprite Games (which PlayStation acquired last September).
No more specific details were given on Call of the Mountian – all we know is that “it is being built specifically for PSVR2 and will open the doors for players to delve further into the world of Horizon.”
Next up are the PlayStation VR2 Sense controllers, which we already knew a little about. These new inputs will offer haptic feedback, a trademarked feature available on the DualSense controller.
It is worth noting that much of the information that has been revealed here aligns with a report that appeared on the internet last year, stating that the PSVR 2 will arrive in the holiday of 2022 and will use OLED panels. Sony has yet to release a release for the hardware, but if this rumor is of any use, it will be in our hands by Christmas.
