The wait was already long, but it ended (in part). Sony has finally unveiled the PlayStation VR2 virtual reality headset which, unsurprisingly, has a similar design to the PlayStation 5 and its derivatives. It is important to remember that the Japanese manufacturer had already shown the special controls that come with the helmet and some of its main features. “Our goal is to create a headset that not only fits well into our living room decor, but will also allow users to immerse themselves in game worlds to the point of forgetting they are wearing a headset or a headset. controller.” explains Hideaki Nishino, Vice President of Platform Experience at Sony.

The installation of its own motor to generate feedback directly from the headset is also confirmed, which was one of the main design challenges. Also in the design, new air intakes are confirmed, for greater circulation to keep players’ faces ventilated and, at the same time, to avoid visor fogging, which was one of the main complaints regarding the first model. Also note a remote setting, more or less distant from the face of the user, as well as the placement of the headphone socket, inherited from the first generation.
