PlayStation VR 2 is now available to purchase priced at $549.99, €599.99, or £529.99. You will be pleased to know that Sony has unveiled plenty of details and information about what you can expect from the new VR headset. For instance, for a high-fidelity visual experience, PlayStation VR2 comes with an OLED display with 4K HDR video format (2000 x 2040 per eye), smooth frame rates of 90 Hz/120 Hz, a 110-degree field of view, and foveated rendering.
With inside-out tracking, PlayStation VR2 tracks the player and the controller through integrated cameras embedded in the VR headset. The player’s movements and the direction they look at are reflected in-game without the need for an external camera. Sony also explains that the PlayStation VR2 was created with comfort in mind and is slightly lighter when you compare it to the original PlayStation VR headset.
Also included is an integrated vent for extra airflow while playing, and a lens adjustment dial so users have an additional option to match the lens distance between their eyes to optimize their view. PlayStation VR2 will also have a simple setup process via a single cable connection directly to PS5.
