The PlayStation VR 2 is said to have dual OLED displays that will support high dynamic range (HDR) video, which should make it brighter, brighter with a wider color spectrum, and provide deeper blacks and more powerful whites. The original PSVR headset had a standard dynamic range (SDR) LCD display. The next-generation PlayStation VR headset will also reportedly offer a 110-degree field of view, 10 degrees more than the first model and 20 degrees more than the Oculus Quest 2. In terms of dual controllers, the PSVR 2 will have sensors that can even detect how far your fingers are from the controller.
YouTube channel PSVR without parole reveals new details about the PlayStation VR 2, which is being developed exclusively for the next generation PlayStation 5, citing a private developer conference hosted by Sony. DownloadVR confirmed that the conference took place earlier this week. This adds to what we already knew about PSVR 2, with DownloadVR In May, it was revealed that the next-gen PlayStation VR headset would offer 2000×2040 per eye resolution for a total 4K resolution. Quest 2 does 1832 × 1920 by eye. However, the PSVR 2 will still require a cable.
PSVR 2 will support dimple rendering, which reduces the rendering workload through eye tracking and can also provide flexible scaling resolution. Together, this should provide better performance as the PlayStation VR 2 will only display what you’re looking at, thus getting more power from the PS5. In addition to distance tracking, the controllers are said to have tactile feedback, adaptive triggers, and capacitive touch sensors for the thumb, index and middle fingers.
And as he speaks to game developers, Sony has stated that it needs AAA “hybrid” games that will work on both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation VR 2. Consider No Man’s Sky, Hitman 3, and Resident Evil 7 made 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.
PlayStation VR 2 is expected in late 2022. Bloombergthough a new report says more details will be announced in early 2022.
