PlayStation VR2, the upcoming virtual reality headset for PS5, has had a lot of hype over the past few months. Confirmed features such as foveated rendering, a 4K OLED screen, ventilated cooling, and a single cord excites gamers more than ever. Today, PlayStation has more details to share about the headset.
A Window Into The User Experience of PS VR2
The new PS VR2 will have a more user-friendly experience that will make it easier to access the user interface while enhancing gameplay and accessibility. First, the headset will have a “see-through view, ” allowing the player to access their surroundings without taking it off. For example, you won’t have to take off the headset to find the Sense controllers since you can set the screen to see the surrounding area instead of the PS5 user interface.
Another cool feature includes being able to broadcast yourself while playing. But, you will need a PS5 HD camera to use the broadcasting feature.
Customizing Playing Areas And More
Another feature players will appreciate – customizing the play area. The Sense controllers and integrated VR cameras can scan the surrounding environment and set your physical boundaries when playing; a warning will also go off if you are too close to that boundary. So, hopefully, no harm is caused when playing Horizon Call of the Mountain.
VR and Cinematic modes are also welcome features. VR Mode is a 360-degree view with a 4000 x 2040 HDR format up to 120Hz when playing VR games. Cinematic mode is for viewing the PS5 UI and watching cinematic content on a virtual cinema screen in a 1920 x 1080 HDR format.
