Sony is working on a successor to its original PlayStation VR which it released in 2016 for PS4. The new PSVR2 will be built for the PS5 and will have lots of new features. While some tough details were revealed, including the looks of the VR headset, the software experience that it will offer was not fully revealed. Now, Sony has officially shared some of the PSVR2’s features, taking us closer to its release.
1. See-Through View
One of the most notable features that the PSVR2 will offer is the ‘see-through view’ feature. This feature will allow users to watch through the VR headset, which means, you don’t need to remove the headset to watch again and again. This will be helpful for those who have small apartments or areas where the PS5 is placed. This will help them not accidentally hit the wall, as well as help them see where the controller is placed, so they can quickly grab them and start VR gaming.
2. Cinematic Mode, up to 120Hz refresh rate
PlayStation VR 2 will also offer 1080p visuals at different refresh rates. There will be a cinematic mode that will allow players to display the game between 24Hz to 120Hz. Plus, the PlayStation 5 interface will also appear in VR, which means there’s no need for you to remove the headset. The interface and native VR content will display at 4000 x 2040 pixels and refresh between 90Hz to 120Hz.
3. Customized Play Area
VR 2 will also offer a customized play area. How it will work, you have to first set up the play area with the camera on the VR and then when you get too close to the limit of the play area, you get an alert immediately. This will again be helpful for gamers with small apartments.
4. Broadcast Yourself
In addition, the VR headset will allow you to broadcast yourself while playing games. For this you need to connect the headset to the PS5 HD camera. This is great for those who stream on Twitch and YouTube.
