Thanks to a new PSVR 2 leak, we know more than ever before about PlayStation’s upcoming VR headset.
PlayStation VR was a huge hit for the PS4, making virtual reality accessible and affordable for gamers everywhere. Nowadays, thanks to devices like the Oculus Quest 2, anyone can have VR in their homes with ease – and Sony’s got some catching up to do.
It looks like the PS5 VR system has some major improvements over its predecessor. Sony is already revealing what the PSVR 2 controllers will look like, after all.
But that’s not all that gamers can look forward to seeing in the next iteration of PlayStation VR. According to the official PlayStation VR 2 reveal, the system will feature “dramatic leaps in performance and interactivity.”
And now a new leak spills the beans on some incredible next-gen PSVR 2 features.
New PlayStation 5 VR Will Be 4K, Leak Suggests
Thanks to a new leak, we know more about the upcoming PSVR 2 system and the possibility of a 4K headset.
According to an insider source at UploadVR, the PSVR 2 will feature a 4K resolution inside its new headset. What’s more, the device reportedly boasts new eye-tracking functionality, allowing players to simply look at the game work to interact with it.
Should this prove correct, Sony’s new virtual reality machine for the PS5 will be one of the highest resolution devices on the market, just behind the HP Reverb G2.
If that wasn’t enough, a new motor will allow the DualSense’s incredible haptic feedback to take place inside your headset for added immersion. And onboard cameras inside the device will manually track controller position, eliminating the need for a complex setup.
Although past rumors suggest that the PlayStation VR 2 may be wireless, this new leak suggests the opposite. Thankfully, it seems that we’ll only require a single USB Type-C connection between the console and the PSVR 2.
Of course, it’s likely that the PSVR 2 will be a PS5 exclusive, thanks to its need for more power. Thankfully, there’s a new update on when the PS5 will be back in stock for good!
What’s more, we’ve got new PS5 restocks dropping this week for those still searching!
Another major PlayStation leak reveals that two more colors of PS5 controller are on the way very soon. And, indeed, an entirely new PS5 redesign is coming in 2022, despite the console being in short supply.
As for which games will be arriving on the PSVR 2, we have little doubt about one candidate. Given its predecessor’s success, we imagine you’ll be seeing Resident Evil Village on PS5’s VR in no time.
