Yesterday, Sony organized a special meeting with developers to inform them about the capabilities of the future virtual reality headset for the PlayStation 5. This product, which is the successor to the first PSVR by name (one of the most popular VR headsets), was officially announced a few months after the launch of the new console. the site downloadAnd also a YouTube channel PSVR without parole I got some technical information as well as details about Sony’s ambition for this project.

The PSVR 2, which will be called NGVR internally (for “next-generation VR”), will feature an OLED display with a resolution of 2000 x 2040 per eye, that is, 4K in all, and with HDR technology. It will cover a field of view of 110 degrees, which is 10 degrees more than the current PSVR headset. To reduce the seasickness often associated with virtual reality, tactile components will be integrated into the headset.
To impress while avoiding excessive strain on the capabilities of the console and headphone, Sony will combine flexible definition scaling technology with a file double made Which would be possible with eye tracking. A technical debauchery that will allow NGVR to accurately calculate only the images that are actually in front of the user’s eyes, and less bother with everything around it.
The headset will connect to the console using a cable, without having to go through an additional box as with PSVR. The controllers will have haptic feedback and will be able to calculate the distance between the user’s fingers and the buttons on the controllers.
In the gaming department, Sony will push developers to design AAA titles, and to make sure PS5 games can be played in VR in a more systematic way than they do now. Hitman 3 and Resident Evil 7 also offer VR versions, but this is far from common practice, and often virtual reality experiences rather than full-fledged games.
Thus the player can download the “flat” version of the game or its VR version. For catalog feed, publishers can also suggest remaster One of their titles is PSVR 1. BloombergHowever, this new headset will not be released before Christmas 2022, by that time we will still be eligible for the many rumors surrounding this product (which will give time to get a copy of the console…).
