PlayStation has revealed the latest update for PlayStation VR2 which includes the user interface and how you can expect the PlayStation VR2 Sense controllers to interact whilst you’re wearing the headset.
Whilst you’re using the new PlayStation VR2 headset, PlayStation has confirmed you’ll be able to see your surroundings thanks to a new feature called See Through which uses the cameras on the headset to quickly show you your surroundings, as well as quick settings.
Within the quick settings, we can see screen brightness, view surroundings, system screen size, VR headset vibration and the ability to set your play area as well as adjust visibility.
There’s also a new broadcast feature which will allow you to film yourself whilst playing with a PS5 HD Camera connected to your console.
You can easily customise your play area, just like you could on the PlayStation VR so that you can scan the area for people and objects in order to not crash into things. Just like it does on Oculus, you’ll get a warning if you get too close to the boundary. This will be locked to your room, so that it stays the same each and every time you play, which will be super useful unless you change rooms, and then you can quickly change the play area.
PlayStation has also confirmed that you’ll be able to play all PS5 games as well the regular PS5 UI in a virtual cinema room in 1920×1080 HDR with a 24/60/120HZ frame rate. In VR mode, you’ll be able to play VR content in 4000×2040 HDR video with 90/120Hz.
Sony also said that we’d get more information about PlayStation VR2 including the launch date and more games coming to the platform soon, which to me sounds like we’ll have these details before the end of the year for potentially an early 2023 release.
