Sony recently shared new information about its upcoming PlayStation VR2 headset and gave an early look at the user interface of the virtual reality gaming console. The new features include a see-through view that lets players see their surroundings without taking off the console headset and a broadcast mode that lets players stream their gameplay on sites like Twitch.
Sony hasn’t said when will be PlayStation VR2 release date, but they have shown off a few new features. PS VR2 will have a new “see-through” feature that uses the built-in front cameras to let players see what’s going on around them without taking off the headset. By connecting a PS5 HD camera to their console and using the new broadcast feature, PS VR2 players will be able to live stream themselves. It also showed that these PS VR2 headsets will have features like a customizable play area, VR Mode, and Cinematic Mode.
All the new information about the Sony PlayStation VR 2 is explained in detail here.
Users of the PlayStation VR2 will be able to see what’s going on around them even when they’re wearing the headset. This will work like the transparency mode on noise-canceling headphones, and it will be powered by the PlayStation VR2’s built-in front cameras.
Sony says this will help you quickly check on small things around the house or find your PS VR2 controllers if you’re wearing the headset with your hands. Sony also says that the see-through view won’t be able to be used to record anything.
With the PlayStation VR2’s new broadcasting feature, players can connect a PS5 HD camera to the console and record themselves playing a game. Sony says, “It’s a great way to show your movements and reactions during a boss battle and share them in real time with other gamers.”
Customisable play area
With the PlayStation VR2, players will be able to change the settings on the built-in cameras and look around the room. Then, they can change the experience to fit their needs and get limits if they get close to one of the pre-set limits. When the PlayStation VR2 is connected, you can also change the settings at any time.
VR mode and Cinematic mode
There will also be a VR mode and a Cinematic mode on the PlayStation VR2. The first one will give players a virtual 360-degree view of VR game content, which will be shown in a 40002040 HDR video format. You can enjoy this at both 90Hz and 120Hz.
With Cinematic mode, players can see the PS5 system, the user interface, and all non-PlayStation VR2 games on a virtual movie screen. The screen is 1920×1080 HDR and supports 24Hz, 60Hz, and 120Hz.
Sony also said that more information about the PlayStation VR2 release date, and when more PlayStation VR2 games would also be announced soon.
