CES 2022 is set to bring plenty of surprises during its run this week, and one of these has come today as Sony officially unveiled its next-generation console VR technology, PlayStation VR2.
During its CES showcase, Sony revealed the PS VR2, which will have a set of new controllers called “PS VR2 Sense Controllers.”
Sony said that this new device will take VR gaming to a new level, providing more presence and escapism than ever before. The device has many noticeable upgrades from its initial version, which launched in 2016. These include a greater visual experience with OLED displays capable of a 2000 x 2040 resolution per eye. These will be accompanied by framerates of 90/120hz. You can check out the full specs for the device here.
You’ll no longer need a bulky camera sitting on your TV cabinet either. The PS VR2 will instead use inside-out tracking. This means that cameras on the device will track you and your controllers within your surroundings while using the device. Also, the device will be capable of eye-tracking, which will allow developers to craft new in-game features depending on where the user is looking.
The controllers are another massive upgrade from its predecessor. PS VR2 Sense Controllers has a completely new design fit with haptic feedback and adaptive triggers to provide further immersion to players.
While we didn’t get a release date for this new device, a pair of games were announced, including Horizon Call of the Mountain and Firesprite.
