Sony has finally revealed the design of the PS VR2 after announcing it earlier this year. The PS5 and Dualsense, as well as the new PlayStation VR2 Sense controller, have the same design language as the headset.
The headset has a “matching orb look” to the PS VR2 Sense controller, according to Hideaki Nishino, Senior Vice President of Platform Experience at SIE. The circular shape represents the 360-degree view that players get when they enter a Virtual Reality world.
Nishino revealed more details about the new VR headset’s design in the same PlayStation Blog post, explaining that more emphasis was placed on adding roundness to the design. Because the headset, like the Dualsense Controller and Pulse 3D headset, is designed to have constant human contact, this is the case.
SIE Finally Reveals the PlayStation VR2 Headset’s Design
The headset was designed with ergonomics in mind, according to SIE, to ensure a comfortable fit for a wide range of head sizes. The first PlayStation VR had a simple, adjustable headband and was designed with care to balance the headset weight, which was carried over to the PlayStation VR2.
A scope that can be moved closer or further away from the user’s face will be included in the headset. The stereo headphone jack will be in the same place as it was on the original PS VR headset.
One of the new features is a lens adjustment dial, which allows users to match the lens distance between their eyes to optimize their view. The headset will be slimmer and lighter than the PS VR, with a new built-in motor for headset feedback.
SIE has not yet confirmed the VR headset’s release date, but it has confirmed that game developers have already received dev kits, ensuring that there will be games for the headset when it launches.
