For the uninitiated, the PSVR2 features two 2000 x 2040 OLED screens that give almost four times the resolution of the original PlayStation VR headset, as well as up to 120 frames per second. Players will be able to enjoy comfortable play sessions through a vast 110 degree field of view and a light, well-balanced Fresnel lens. The lens adjustment dial allows players to customize spacing between lenses to match their eye position for an optimal onscreen image. The headset also includes a vent that allows airflow to the lenses, reducing fogging and improving player comfort.
The PSVR2 headset detects the motion of your eyes, allowing for heightened emotional response and enhanced expression when meeting fellow players online. Eye tracking cameras follow your line of sight when aiming or looking around, while advanced foveated rendering techniques improve the visual experience by adjusting resolutions to pinpoint and enhance whatever you’re focusing on. The PlayStation VR2 tracks its user and their controllers through four cameras embedded in the headset. The user’s movements and the direction they look towards are reflected in-game without the need for an external camera. The VR headset supports subtle, responsive headset vibrations at key moments during gameplay. Created by a single built-in motor, these vibrations add an intelligent tactile element to the sensory immersion experienced by the player.
