Following a specs announcement last month, Sony has now shown off what the upcoming PlayStation VR2 headset will look like.
The headset features a rounded design like the new PS VR2 Sense controllers. On the front of the headset, you can see the four cameras that will be used for inside-out tracking.
“When I started to work on the design for the PlayStation VR2 headset, one of the areas I wanted to focus on first was the idea of creating a vent in the headset to let air out, similar to the vents on the PS5 console that allows airflow. Our engineers came up with this idea as a good way to allow ventilation and avoid having the lens fog up while players are immersed in their VR games. I worked on many design concepts to achieve this, and in the final design, you can see there is a little space in between the top and front surface of the scope that contains the integrated ventilation. I am really proud of how this turned out and the positive feedback I have gotten so far. I hope our PlayStation fans will also agree, and I can’t wait for them to try it out,” said Yujin Morisawa, Senior Art Director, SIE.
Like the PS5, the PS VR2 has a black and white colour scheme. The headset’s handband and lenses spacing can also be adjusted for ease of comfort.
Near the back of the headset, you’ll find the adjustable scope to adjust the fit. There’s also a headphone jack on the headset, so you can plug in your own pair of headphones.
PS VR 2 is made to work with the PS5 console and because of that the VR headset’s screen is a 4K OLED display with HDR, 110 FOV, 90 & 120Hz frame rate support and 2000×2040 per eye.
The headset will also connect to the PS5 using a single USB-C cable for easier setup.
No release date has been announced yet for PlayStation VR2.
