Display Oled, Eye Tracking
Sony officially announced PSVR 2’s name and key specs at its conference at CES 2022 and in a PlayStation Blog post. The Playstation VR 2 will feature a 4K OLED HDR display system with 2000 x 2040 resolution per eye, headset-based controller tracking, feedback built into the headset, and haptic feedback in the controllers, and eye-tracking.
The addition of eye tracking will be particularly pleasing news for VR enthusiasts, as it lets the PSVR 2 track the motion of your eyes. Simply look in a specific direction and the headset will create an additional input for your game character. This results in a more intuitive and natural experience.
The headset supports headphones with a standard headphone jack, and has one cable that tethers to the PS5 via USB-C, via a jack that seems to come out of one side of the headband. That’s a lot fewer wires than the crazy breakout box needed for the original PSVR.
PlayStation VR2 Sense
The PSVR 2 controllers look to enhance VR immersion with built-in haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, and finger-touch detection while sporting a more orb-like design that should make them more comfortable to hold. They also sport a similar design to that of the DualSense controller and Pulse 3D Headset, with rounded edges and a white and black aesthetic.
Another feature the PSVR 2 controllers take from the DualSense is haptic feedback. Haptic feedback uses touch to communicate with players, allowing you to feel sensations from a game through the controller itself. So, for example, in Astro’s Playroom for PS5, when you’re walking through sand, you can feel the texture difference reverberated through the DualSense controller.
