Sony hosted ‘The Future of Gaming’ event earlier this month to unveil its brand new piece of technology, the PS5. Although it didn’t feature any details for PlayStation VR 2, a new patent could offer some indication of what to expect with the next-gen headset.
A while ago, Sony Interactive Entertainment filed a patent that hints at sickness reduction for PlayStation VR 2.
Now, the company has filed a new patent that seems to target a “highly enjoyable viewing experience” for the headset.
As unearthed by Gaming INTEL, Sony’s latest patent filing is for a new information processing system, method, and computer program.
The patent hints at a new information processing system that will “provide a user who views a virtual space with a viewing experience with high entertainment characteristics.”
This new patent also proposes a way to allow players to feel more immersed while using the head mounted display. Wherever the user rotates their head, a panoramic image according to the line-of-sight direction is displayed.
Sony has remained tight-lipped regarding their next-gen VR headset. While it hasn’t been officially confirmed as of yet, it will likely launch sometime after the PS5.
