Next-Gen PlayStation VR Headset Specs Reportedly Revealed, Offers 4K Resolution And Haptic Feedback

We got the first details about Sony's next-gen PSVR headset for PS5 back in February and already, it's sounding like a significant improvement on its PS4 predecessor. Having previously detailed the new VR controllers in March, hardware specs have now been leaked to UploadVR.

Citing unnamed sources, they confirmed Sony's PS5 headset features 4K resolution at 4000x2040, marking a significant boost on PS4's VR headset, which offered 1920x1080. Comparatively, that puts this new model just below the HP Reverb G2, but ahead of Oculus Quest 2.

Next-Gen PlayStation VR Headset Specs Reportedly Revealed, Offers 4K Resolution And Haptic Feedback

Furthermore, this report states PS5 VR utilises gaze tracking capable of foveated rendering, meaning the headset could theoretically detect where you're looking at. Lens adjustment support is also cited and crucially, this new headset joins the DualSense and new VR controllers in offering haptic feedback, as a means of reducing motion sickness.

Presently, Sony hasn't formally confirmed these reports, so we'll need to wait on formal confirmation. However, given their March update confirmed prototype hardware was being sent out to developers soon, we'd place good money on this being true. As always, we'll keep you updated when new details emerge.
