Sony confirms PlayStation VR2 name; shares specs and first exclusive game

05 January 2022 0

In a move that no one saw coming, Sony officially confirmed the name of its next-gen PlayStation virtual reality hardware during its CES 2022 presentation. It is unsurprisingly called PlayStation VR2 (PS VR2) as it is a direct successor to the PlayStation VR. It did not show what the headset looks like but shared specifications. It also teased the first exclusive VR game Horizon: Call of the Mountain for the device.

The PlayStation VR2 will sport OLED display panels with 4K HDR support. It will offer 2000 x 2040 pixels resolution per eye, 110-degree field-of-view, 90Hz/120Hz refresh rates, and foveated rendering. It is important to note that the VR headset will work only with the PlayStation 5 console and will connect to it via USB Type-C.

Sony has also confirmed the name of VR controllers to be PlayStation VR2 Sense. The headset features integrated cameras for tracking both headset and controller movements and reflecting them in-game. This will eliminate the need for having an external camera to track movements as it was the case with the previous generation.

It is claiming to deliver a "deep feeling of immersion" with the help of PS VR2 Sense technology. It is said to combine eye tracking, headset feedback, 3D Audio, and controller. Lastly, Sony teased the first PlayStation VR2 exclusive game that will be available for the headset. It is part of the Horizon franchise and will release only after the Horizon Forbidden West which is coming next month.
