Virtual reality helmets have eye tracking, as one of their novelties
It kicked off a new generation of virtual reality for PlayStation with the release of the PlayStation VR2 headset, which will have access to games like Horizon: Call of the Mountain, Resident Evil Village, Gran Turismo 7, and No Man’s Sky.
The initial library is anticipated to contain 40 games in total, in addition to the most well-known ones for many.
Its sale price is $599 and it will only be compatible with PlayStation 5, being an ally of the console for the current generation in which the Xbox Series X|S is also present.
What’s New in PlayStation VR 2
This attachment differs from the first generation in a number of ways, the most noticeable of which is that it will only require a single cable to connect to the console, as opposed to the first accessory, which required multiple connections and interfered with the gameplay.
A 2000 x 2040 OLED HDR panel with a field of vision of 110 degrees and refresh rates of 90 and 120 Hz stands out in its technical part. This screen will provide 4K visual quality, which is considerably more fluid and realistic.
The usage of eye tracking technology, which will enable users to view what is around them without having to turn their heads and within the defined field of vision, depending on where their attention is directed, is another crucial component.
Haptic technology is also featured, allowing you to feel what is occurring in the game. This technology is implemented in the viewfinder and the controls, which also have adaptive triggers that adjust their resistance based on how the game is moving and the possibility to detect finger movements.
