Sony has revealed the first look at the PlayStation VR2 headset, alongside another proper look at the PSVR2 Sense Controllers. Matching the white and black look that’s associated with the PlayStation 5, Sony confirmed that it was designed to match the next-generation console on the PlayStation Blog.
Fans can check out what the PSVR2 headset looks like below. The design might take some getting used to but when you consider how VR games can be difficult to get comfortable with in general, it shouldn’t take much tinkering for fans to get onboard.
Sony Officially Reveals PSVR2 Headset
In the blog post, Sony stated that the goal with the PSVR2 headset design is to make it an attractive part of the player’s living room. They also promised that players will be able to fix things like the headset’s adjustable scope and lens adjustment dial for maximum comfort.
"The design of the PS VR2 headset was also inspired by the look of the PS5 family of products. When our design team created the PS5 console, they also had the next generation VR headset in mind so you’ll notice some similarities in the look and feel. The PS5 console has flat edges as it is meant to be displayed on a flat surface, while there was more emphasis on adding roundness to the design of PS VR2 headset since it is meant to have constant human contact, similar to the rounded edges of the DualSense controller and Pulse 3D headset.
Our goal is to create a headset that will not only become an attractive part of your living room decor, but will also keep you immersed in your game world, to the point where you almost forget you are using a headset or controller. That’s why we paid very close attention to the ergonomics of the headset and conducted extensive testing to ensure a comfortable feel for a variety of head sizes. We already had a lot of positive feedback on the ergonomics of the first PS VR headset by carefully balancing the headset weight and having a simple headband that can be adjustable, so we kept the same concept for the PS VR2 headset. Other features such as the headset’s adjustable scope that places the scope area closer or further away from the face and placement of the stereo headphone jack also remain the same, so players will be familiar with it." - Hideaki Nishino - Senior Vice President, Platform Experience
Currently, there is still no PSVR 2 release date so it will take a while before players get to fiddle with the headset and Sense Controllers. We will keep you updated on the PSVR2 and any news that accompanies the accessory.
