New images related to PlayStation VR2, Sony’s suite of virtual reality equipment, have been released.
Sony has revealed its first look at the design of its PlayStation VR2 consoles. In addition to being elegant, it can be said that appearance is not the only thing that this second generation of VR gear brings. In a post published on PlayStation BlogSony’s Senior Vice President of Platform Experience Hideaki Nishino said that the PlayStation VR2 is designed to have a similar look to the brand’s premium consoles. The PS VR2 Sense controller has an orbital shape, and the rounded edges are similar to what Sony did with the DualSense and Pulse headphones.
But the changes are not only of an aesthetic nature. Nishino writes that Sony has taken into consideration reactions About the ergonomics of the headphones, which served to balance the weight of the surround device. There will also be ways to adjust the lenses and an overall slimmer, sleeker design.
Amid all the changes and modifications, the PlayStation VR2 headset also received an air vent. Sony’s chief technical officer, Eugene Morisawa, said he wanted to create a kind of fan in the headphones, between the top surface and the front surface of the device, similar to the vents already on the PlayStation 5. The idea is to allow air to circulate and prevent lens fogging while gaming. It’s fine, especially for those who play more intense titles like “Beat Saber” or “Pistol Whip”.
Unfortunately, and while you can already pre-order the products, no release date has been set for Sony’s second VR device.
