Sneak peek at the user experience we can expect with the PS VR2 headset


Sony Interactive Entertainment Australia has given us a sneak peek into the user experience we can expect when the PlayStation VR2 is released later this year.

The virtual reality headset will be supported by the world’s top gaming developers who are busily creating next generation games and experiences.

PS VR2 will include a see-through view which means users can easily check their real-life surroundings without needing to remove the headset.

This is enabled thanks to the PS VR2’s embedded front cameras which can be accessed using the function button on the headset to switch between viewing your surroundings and the content through the headset.

The PS VR 2 will also allow you to broadcast yourself while you’re playing by connecting a PS5 HD camera to the console.

The PS VR2 will also allow you to make best use of the space you have at home.

The onboard cameras can scan the room while the controllers can map the play area so the game will be adjusted to fit your environment.

Also onboard the PS VR2 is VR Mode and Cinematic Mode.

In VR Mode users can enjoy a 360-degree view in a virtual environment with content displayed in 4000 x 2040 HD video format – that’s 2000 x 2040 per eye with a 90Hz/120Hz frame rate.

In Cinematic Mode, the PS VR2 can view the PS5 system and UI along with non-VR game and media content on a virtual cinema screen.

Cinematic Mode will be displayed in 1920 x 1080 HDR video format with either 24/60Hz and 120Hz frame rate.

The PS VR2 will be released later in 2022.
