A Sony patent could have revealed a killer new feature for the upcoming PSVR 2 controller.
The original PSVR launched way back in 2016 and VR technology has moved on a lot since then. While it is possible to use your PSVR on PS5, many PlayStation fans are hoping that a true next-gen VR experience will be coming soon.
A key component of the VR experience is the controllers. A new patent filed by Sony could give fans a glimpse of a future PSVR controller.
Sony Patent Could Be PSVR 2 Controller
A new patent filed by Sony in America describes some of the features that could be making their way into the next-gen PSVR 2 controller. Even if it hasn't been announced yet, the PSVR 2 could also be coming sooner than expected.
The main new feature that the patent details are inbuilt proximity sensors. This would make the new controller a huge upgrade over the PS Move controllers.
For players wanting to use VR on PS5, Sony is offering free PS5 camera adapters for PSVR.
The proximity sensors will apparently be able to detect any movement and bending of fingers. This controller would make games on the PSVR 2 far more immersive than on the current PSVR.
This controller would also be similar to the Oculus Quest 2. That controller can track the movements of players' hands and fingers using similar sensors.
However, it is important to remember that technology companies like Sony file patents for experimental devices all of the time.
Plus, Sony has not even announced the PSVR 2 yet. Even if this patent is for the future PSVR 2 controller, the components and technology they use in the final version could be totally different.
