What are the improvements in this upcoming headset?
The second-generation PlayStation VR headset has a lot of improvements over the first. For example, it has an OLED screen with a 110-degree field of view, 4K HDR playback, and a 120Hz refresh rate.
Four cameras are built into the front, which lets you see through it, make your play area, and do other things. The new orb-shaped controllers also have adaptive triggers and haptic feedback, like the DualSense. Moreover, they can sense when your finger touches them.
“We made the PS VR2 headset with comfort in mind. Compared to previous headset, it is a little bit thinner and lighter. We also added a built-in vent to let in more air and a dial to adjust the lens for a more personalised feel. We hope that players will like the new look.” Isabelle Tomatis, who works for Sony Interactive Entertainment as VP of the brand, hardware, and peripherals, says the following.
Sony has also announced 11 new games for the PS VR2, including the much-talked-about Horizon: Call of the Mountain. Moreover, it will also include The Dark Pictures: Switchback VR, Cities VR – Enhanced Edition, Crossfire: Sierra Squad, and more. After the PS VR 2 comes out in February 2023, these games will be able to be played on it.
