After revealing more details about the new VR system in CES 2022, Sony has finally given us our first look at the PlayStation VR2 headset!
Check it out here:
The design of the PS VR2 is based on the look of the PS5 in terms of both color and other design elements. PlayStation also mentioned that they have improved the ergonomics of the headset, meaning it promises to be even more comfortable to wear and use.
Along with these, the PS VR2 headset also has a lens adjustment dial that lets users match the lens distance for a better and more comfortable view. The headset is also slimmer and lighter, all while packing a built-in motor for haptic feedback.
Regarding the design of the headset, SIE Senior Art Direcotr, Yujin Morisawa said:
“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.”
While we now know what the PS VR2 headset looks like, there’s no word yet on a release date for the new PlayStation virtual reality system.
