While Sony’s making strides with the release of PlayStation 5, they are also focusing on their upcoming VR headset. Called PS VR2, the PlayStation 5 compatible headset plans on adding various nifty features for the userbase.
With the release date creeping up slowly, the company unveiled more details about it last night.
Firstly, the PS VR2 will allow users to see their surrounding while wearing the headphones. The headset has a see-through feature, thanks to PS VR2’s embedded front cameras. Users can press the function button on the headset or use the card in the control centre to switch to the setting.
Secondly, the headset will allow users to set play areas. Players can do that by using the controllers for the headset and the embedded cameras. The camera allows scanning of the room, while the Sense controller lets users tweak the play area. During the playthrough, if one gets close to the boundary, they will receive a warning.
Finally, the headset will contain both VR Mode and Cinematic Mode. In VR Mode, users can enjoy VR game content in a 360-view virtual environment. Content gets displayed in 4000 x 2040 HDR video format with a 90Hz/120Hz frame rate.
During Cinematic Mode, players can view the PS5 system, UI, and all non-VR content on a virtual camera screen. Content in Cinematic Mode gets displayed in 1920 x 1080 HDR video format with 24Hz/60Hz and 120Hz frame rates.
