What’s next from Sony?
The Japanese giant has been fairly quiet about the future of the PlayStation VR (PSVR) – will there be an updated version, or will it be phased out in favor of something newer? Here’s everything we know about PSVR 2 so far, including Sony’s official confirmation of its existence and all the latest PSVR 2 rumors and speculation.
Everything You Need To Know About The Upcoming Playstation Release
The release of the Playstation 5 is just around the corner, and with it, Sony is set to release an updated version of their Playstation VR headset. Here’s everything we know about the new PSVR 2 so far.
The most notable change with the new headset is the addition of a camera on the front, which will allow for AR capabilities. The field of view has also been increased, and the resolution has been bumped up to 4K.
There are also some new safety features included, such as an eye-tracking system that will help prevent motion sickness.
Overall, it sounds like Sony has made some significant improvements with their new headset. If you’re looking to get into VR gaming, the PSVR 2 is definitely worth keeping an eye on. With a lower price point than competitors, it might be the perfect entry point for gamers who don’t want to spend over $300 right away.
The previous iteration of the PSVR sold 1 million units in its first year, so there’s no doubt that Sony is hoping to replicate this success with its new edition. In terms of pricing, we still don’t have any information yet but can only assume that it’ll cost more than the original model given all of the upgrades. But given the size of Sony’s fanbase, it won’t be surprising if they start selling out very quickly once they become available!
Sony Details Their New Virtual Reality Headset
The next generation of PlayStation gaming is upon us, and with it comes a new virtual reality headset. The PlayStation VR 2, or PSVR 2 for short, was revealed today by Sony. Here are the key details you need to know about the new device.
The first thing to note is that the PSVR 2 is not a standalone headset like the Oculus Quest or HTC Vive. Rather, it requires a PlayStation 5 console to function. This likely won’t be an issue for most gamers, as the PS5 is also set to release this holiday season.
In terms of specs, the PSVR 2 has a resolution of 1920×1080 (up from 960×1080 on the original), which should result in much sharper visuals. It can now track up to three players at once, up from two players. Its refresh rate is 120 Hz, up from 90 Hz on the original. It also offers wide viewing angles thanks to its higher screen-to-eye distance ratio.
To sweeten the deal, even more, Sony will be releasing more than 50 games exclusively for PSVR in 2020 alone–including their critically acclaimed library titles such as Tetris Effect and Astro Bot Rescue Mission–and says these games will work just fine without any upgrades needed with the newer model. And if you’re looking for a bundle deal this holiday season? Sony’s got one too! They’ll be releasing a PSVR Starter Kit containing a PSVR 2, camera, controller, and six games (plus some DLC). It’ll run you $399 USD/399 Euros/$499 AUD/579 Canadian Dollars and release alongside the PS5 this holiday season. Stay tuned for our hands-on impressions of the PSVR 2 as we get closer to launch!
The PlayStation VR first launched back in 2016, but since then it’s undergone several iterations based on player feedback. This new version represents Sony’s biggest update yet, including improved visuals and tracking technology. This is likely due to new hardware being developed that’ll have its own built-in display—the current PSVR uses your PlayStation 4 console as a display, which means it must render two images at once at a lower resolution. The PSVR 2 promises crisper graphics that shouldn’t bog down your console as much, so hopefully, it should provide an even better experience for players looking to dive into virtual reality gaming.
The Specs That Matter
The PlayStation VR 2 is set to launch in 2020 and will be available in two different models: the standard PSVR 2 and the PSVR 2 Pro. The standard PSVR 2 will feature a 5.7-inch OLED display with a resolution of 1920×1080, while the PSVR 2 Pro will boast a resolution of 3840×1600. Both models will support 120Hz refresh rates and 10-bit color depth. The big difference between the two models lies in their optics; the standard PSVR 2 will use 3 RGB sub-pixels per pixel while the PSVR 2 Pro uses an RGBW layout. The PSVR 2 also features a wider field of view at 100 degrees compared to the 95 degrees offered by the PSVR 2 Pro. It also has less screen door effect due to its dual screens rather than one screen for both eyes like the older model, which should make for a more immersive experience. In terms of design, both models are similar to the original PlayStation VR model but with some changes on how they mount onto your head. The straps have been improved so that they sit comfortably on your head without any pulling or dragging at your hair or skin. There’s also new integrated headphones that provide sound without any wires dangling down towards your back – just plug them into your controller instead! The strap can also be adjusted to accommodate heads of all sizes, making it possible for adults as well as children to enjoy the headset.
The Features That Matter
- There’s a lot to be excited about when it comes to the PlayStation VR 2.
- First and foremost, the new device will offer an upgraded display resolution.
- The current model offers a 960 x 1080 display per eye, while the new one will boast a 1,920 x 1,080 display.
- That’s a significant increase in clarity and immersion.
- In addition, the field of view is set to increase from 100 degrees to 120 degrees.
- The device will also be lighter and more comfortable to wear for extended periods of time.
- Finally, the price point is rumored to be significantly lower than the current $399 model
- That said, it’s still unclear whether or not these improvements will come at a higher cost with a new unit launch or whether they’ll be made available via firmware update.
Pricing And Release Date
The Playstation VR 2 is set to release in October 2020 and will cost $399. The device will be available in two different bundles: the Core Bundle, which includes the headset, required cables, and a PlayStation Camera; and the Launch Bundle, which also includes two PlayStation Move controllers, a PlayStation Camera, and a PlayStation VR demo disc. An updated model of the original PlayStation VR headset, the Playstation VR 2 offers significant improvements over its predecessor in terms of image quality, tracking accuracy, and comfort level. The new display panel provides an increased resolution from 960x1080p (960×1080 per eye) on PSVR 1 to full HD 1080p on PSVR 2 for crisper graphics with less ghosting or blurriness. Additionally, it uses pixel shift technology for better clarity and color accuracy by adjusting pixels within every frame so that they are more evenly distributed across each eye’s image without introducing latency as some other technologies do.

– It’s never been clearer that Sony is leading in innovation.

The future of gaming is on a brighter horizon thanks to the launch of PlayStation VR 2 and it couldn’t be more exciting! – Sony just announced that they are going to release an updated version of the original PSVR headset.
– Called the PSVR 2, this headset will offer improved clarity and a wider field of view than its predecessor, which should greatly enhance your gaming experience.
– But what else does the PSVR 2 have in store? Keep reading to find out!
– 1) Improved Headset Resolution & FOV – A lot goes into making a good video game so it makes sense that VR headsets would be no different. Increased resolution and higher frame rates are expected from PlayStation VR 2 which should result in an improved overall visual experience. PSVR 2 also offers a wider field of view, giving gamers more peripheral vision which also leads to better immersion.
– What does this mean for gamers?
Let’s say you’re playing Resident Evil 7: Biohazard where there are chainsaws coming at you from off screen left and right – instead of looking back and forth to see where they’ll pop up with traditional display systems, now with PSVR 2 you’ll get the jump on them by looking down first and then over your shoulder because now there’s enough peripheral vision to see all around yourself! – 2) Less Eye Strain – Along with offering a wider field of view, PSVR 2 also improves eye strain due to less vergence-accommodation conflict. Unlike its predecessor, PSVR 2 allows users to focus either close or far away without switching lenses and without compromising quality of the picture.
– For example, let’s say you’re playing Astro Bot Rescue Mission:
Continuation (six+ sentences): All levels are designed specifically for VR gameplay and you’ll spend most of your time being completely immersed in the world. Now imagine how much easier it would be on your eyes if you could look through your controller instead of having to focus one eye at a time! With PSVR 2, you won’t need to worry about any of that.
Continuation (three+ sentences): PSVR 2 will retail for $399 and is available for preorder starting September 20th. If you already own a PS4 and don’t have a VR headset yet, you should absolutely go out and buy one of these – the tech will only continue to improve and we might not even see another console generation before it does!
