Failing to announce an official release date for the headset that will succeed the PS VR, launched in 2016, PlayStation reveals some of its features in a blog post published on Tuesday.
We provide images of the
transparent view PS VR2, which allows you to see the real environment surrounding the player or the player, thanks to cameras. This can be used in particular to easily find a controller without having to remove your helmet. Competing devices from Meta offer a similar function.
No big surprise either in terms of the functionality to draw limits to its virtual play space based on the real environment. Much like the Quest headsets allow, the PlayStation VR2 will use cameras to scan the room the player is in and map out a play area based on any obstacles present.
PlayStation seems to want to seduce instavideasts (in English: streamers), because we announce a feature allowing you to film yourself while you play and broadcast everything live by connecting a PS5 HD camera to the console.
Two viewing modes will be offered for the PS VR2: VR mode and cinematic mode. In VR mode, content will be displayed at maximum resolution in 4000 x 2040 HDR video format, in 360°. The cinematic mode, in 1920 x 1080 HDR resolution, will instead allow you to enjoy all the multimedia content and games that are not in virtual reality.
We will provide you with new information soon, including the launch date and additional games that will be released on the platformconcludes the PlayStation blog post.
