Sony is preparing a new virtual reality headset for the PlayStation 5

Sony is committed to building on and building on the success of VR technology for the PlayStation console. In 2019, 2.7 million PSVR headsets were sold worldwide against 1.7 million Oculus. Data for 2020 is not yet available, but this does not prevent senior vice president of the company Hideaki Nishino from announcing ambitious plans for the future. Namely, the next generation virtual reality headset PSVR 2 for the new PlayStation 5 console.

It is stated that it has not yet been possible to get rid of the wires, but their number has been reduced from two to one, which will still simplify the connection and configuration of the headset. Entering VR, players will notice the expansion of the vertical field of view, which directly affects the perception of the game world. Their fingers will sense new tactile signals from the joysticks, which will increase the interactive interaction with the virtual environment.

From Nishino's words, it can be concluded that a new system for controlling the position of the head and body of the gamer will be developed, which will grow out of the existing DualSense controller. Here PlayStation needs to be cleaned up for a long time so as not to fiddle with external cameras and keep up with competitors. The task is not an easy one, so it is not surprising that you should not expect a novelty this year.
