The PlayStation VR2 launch is in full swing, and we can’t wait for you to try out the amazing new games and experiences available with our next-generation VR headset. As we continue to work on launch, today we’d like to give you a preview of some of the user experience features you’ll find in PS VR2.
Come check it out.
With PS VR2, you can see your surroundings while wearing the headset thanks to the new transparent screen feature. This is useful when you want to quickly see where the PS VR2 Sense controllers are without removing the headset. Thanks to PS VR2’s built-in front-facing cameras, users can press the function button on the headset or use a card in Control Center to switch between browsing the environment or watching content on PS VR2. A card in the Control Center also provides quick access to other PS VR2 settings, such as adjusting the play area.
The transparent display can only be used for preview, so there is no recording option.
Run your picture while playing
The new PS VR2 streaming feature lets you film yourself in-game by connecting the PS5’s HD camera to the console. It’s a great way to show off your moves and reactions during boss fights and share everything with other players in real time.
The PS VR2 play area can be customized using PS VR2 Sense controllers and built-in cameras. Cameras allow you to analyze your surroundings, while PS VR2 Sense controls allow you to expand and further customize the play area to match your style and environment.
During gameplay, if you get too close to the set limit, you will receive a warning that you are approaching the limit of the playing area. You can change your settings at any time while the PS VR2 is connected. After setting up a play zone, the settings will be saved unless you switch to another zone.
VR mode and cinematic mode
In VR mode, players can enjoy game content with a 360 view in a virtual environment. Content will be displayed in 4000 x 2040 HDR video format (2000 x 2040 per eye), with a frame rate of 90 Hz/120 Hz.
In cinematic mode, players can view the PS5 system and interface and all game content rather than VR media on a virtual cinema screen. Content will be displayed in cinematic mode in 1920 x 1080 HDR video format with frame rates of 24/60 Hz and 120 Hz.
PS VR2 game developers will begin accessing the latest PS VR2 user experience in the new system software release as part of ongoing development. There are many exciting aspects to PS VR2, and we look forward to sharing even more details about our next-generation VR headset, which takes a significant leap in gaming innovation. We will share more information soon, including the release date and additional games coming to the platform.
