Vi skriver nu 2022, og allerede få dage inde i det nye år, har vi masser at se frem til. Sony har netop officielt annonceret hvad vi kan forvente af et next-gen VR headset til PlayStation 5. Under CES2022 kunne Sony annoncere: PlayStation VR2 og deres nye VR controller, kaldet PlayStation VR2 Sense.

Hvis du allerede har et PlayStation VR headset til PS4, så ved du sikkert hvor fedt det kan være. Men med det nye headset og controller, så bliver VR taget til nye højder. Her lover Sony en rigtig next-gen oplevelse hvor det visuelle og sanseindtryk er i højsædet. Det bedste af det hele? – kun én ledning.

  • Visual Fidelity: For a high-fidelity visual experience, PS VR2 offers 4K HDR, 110-degree field of view, and foveated rendering. With an OLED display, players can expect a display resolution of 2000×2040 per eye and smooth frame rates of 90/120Hz.
  • Headset-based Controller Tracking: With inside-out tracking, PS VR2 tracks you and your controller through integrated cameras embedded in the VR headset. Your movements and the direction you look at are reflected in-game without the need for an external camera.
  • New Sensory Features: PS VR2 Sense Technology combines eye tracking, headset feedback, 3D Audio, and the innovative PS VR2 Sense controller to create an incredibly deep feeling of immersion. Headset feedback is a new sensory feature that amplifies the sensations of in-game actions from the player. It’s created by a single built-in motor with vibrations that add an intelligent tactile element, bringing players closer to the gameplay experience. For example, gamers can feel a character’s elevated pulse during tense moments, the rush of objects passing close to the character’s head, or the thrust of a vehicle as the character speeds forward. Additionally, PS5’s Tempest 3D AudioTech makes sounds in the player’s surroundings come alive, adding to this new level of immersion.
  • Eye Tracking: With eye tracking, PS VR2 detects the motion of your eyes, so a simple look in a specific direction can create an additional input for the game character. This allows players to interact more intuitively in new and lifelike ways, allowing for a heightened emotional response and enhanced expression that provide a new level of realism in gaming. 

Så du får i den grad en oplevelse udover det sædvanlige. Med muligheden for at kunne tracke ens øjne og de mange muligheder for at være mere mobil, i forhold til udeblivelsen af eksterne kameraer, er i den grad spændende. Men bestemt er det vigtigste at skærmene inde i headsettet kombineret giver et 4K HDR opløsning.
