Well folks, it's official. The name of the new VR headset from Sony IS Playstation VR2. I know this is a PC forum, but PSVR can be used on PC unofficially, and I'm sure someone will figure out this one as well.

  • Visual Fidelity: For a high-fidelity visual experience, PS VR2 offers 4K HDR, 110-degree field of view, and foveated rendering. With an OLED display, players can expect a display resolution of 2000×2040 per eye and smooth frame rates of 90/120Hz.
  • Headset-based Controller Tracking: With inside-out tracking, PS VR2 tracks you and your controller through integrated cameras embedded in the VR headset. Your movements and the direction you look at are reflected in-game without the need for an external camera.
  • New Sensory Features: PS VR2 Sense Technology combines eye tracking, headset feedback, 3D Audio, and the innovative PS VR2 Sense controller to create an incredibly deep feeling of immersion. Headset feedback is a new sensory feature that amplifies the sensations of in-game actions from the player. It’s created by a single built-in motor with vibrations that add an intelligent tactile element, bringing players closer to the gameplay experience. For example, gamers can feel a character’s elevated pulse during tense moments, the rush of objects passing close to the character’s head, or the thrust of a vehicle as the character speeds forward. Additionally, PS5’s Tempest 3D AudioTech makes sounds in the player’s surroundings come alive, adding to this new level of immersion.
  • Eye Tracking: With eye tracking, PS VR2 detects the motion of your eyes, so a simple look in a specific direction can create an additional input for the game character. This allows players to interact more intuitively in new and lifelike ways, allowing for a heightened emotional response and enhanced expression that provide a new level of realism in gaming.

Wow! Yeah, I just saw this earlier this morning! This looks really good. This is starting to feel like this will be the year for VR/AR. The new lenses and mini-led and micro OLED will be amazing for VR. This specs for PSVR2 are amazing. I just want to know price now. lol I bet we hear more about Project Cambria very soon after this announcement. I know FB doesn't want anything to take the winds out of it's sails for Quest 2. This might even push Valve to show us something as well, but I doubt it. lol Honestly though Horizon could dethrone HLA from being the best VR game. I mean it probably won't for me but for most it might.

Sony has made some really good games for the old PSVR. I can only imagine they will keep that going with PSVR2. Hopefully, we hear about more games soon. Sony had a pretty good lineup for PSVR. This is very exciting. I hope I can get a PS5 before this launches.

Unfortunately, when talking about Horizon, they keep mentioning the word "experience." And it looks like some pretty on rails experience, rather than actual game where you are free to explore about. I hope they prove me wrong.

I caught that too and the trailer implies it is like that as well. The PSVR 2 claims to have foveated rendering which is a game changer and they could do wonders with the hardware it has. If they make it wireless then it really is a game changer.

The problem with HLA is the hardware needed to have a great experience with the game. So far nothing remotely compares to the WOW factor I got from my first time launching HLA.

Nice catch, I did not see that part.

EDIT: I just watched the ces event and it says full game built for PSVR2 from the ground up, check out this video.

Yeah, HLA is amazing. The hardware isn't as bad as one might think. I just tried HLA using a GTX 970 and Quest 2 over Airlink and it was amazing. Now, not as good as my RTX 2070 and Rift S setup. I bought a usb cable to use link with Quest 2. I need to test it out as well. I didn't get the official cable. I'm just super surprised I can even play HLA with a GTX 970 and Quest 2. Airlink works really well and for the most part looks great. I think we will see HLA announced for PSVR2 before launch. It will be the premier way to play it unless Valve announces their new HMD.

I bought a PSVR when it was first released as a birthday gift for my Son. It wasn’t cheep. After seeing how the prices dropped over time I think I can say that I’ll give the PSVR2 a miss when it’s first released and wait it out at least a season or two before buying.

im guessing it will be a fairly good VR HMD but it will probably be a bit on the expensive side.

I expect it will go ror €650-700 here in Croatia. Same situation with the console. If you manage to find it. Scalpers have them. I have never seen a single one available in stores here. Offline or online.
XBOX series is relatively easy to find. Especially Series S which s always available.
I need to see how much support with good games will this headset have. I am postponing my playtrough of Resident Evil 8 in hopes it will get proper VR support with full motion controler integration like RE 4 for Quest 2.
I played a bit of HL:Alyx back when i had Rift S, but decided to postpone it in order to play on a better headset. My favorite game is Lone Echo. But we will sadly never see that on PSVR because Meta bought the development studio.
So far confired ports (that i know of) are Pavlov and boneworks. devs tweeted about it a while back.

I got to say I thought HLA was fantastic on my Rift S. What part of the Rift S did you not like? Visually it's not that far behind Index. The only real negative I can say is that it's lock at 80hz but even then it was fine. Honestly, I don't know how you could stop playing it. lol It's that good for me. I'm replaying it now a little here and there. I'm in the middle of RE4 on Quest 2 and it's really good so far. Also, don't forget you can add your VR/AR HMD to your specs now when you get your new HMD. :toast:

Well I'm a kind of person who will complain abut everyting :D. I had PSVR, Lenovo Explorer and Rift S. S was the best. And somehow the only headset that didn't give me any motion sickness. Idk why. I didn't like those fresnel lenses. They introduced a lot of godrays. I was very careful about cleaning them with micro fiber cloth, but over time even that caused micro scratches and made godrays even worse. Sweetspot is tiny and it doesn't have any manual IPD adjustment. Controllers are fantastic compared to PSVR and Lenovo explorer. But still I would say this is the first VR headset that was "good enough" to me. I'm just waiting for something better.
I hope PSVR 2 will have automatic lens adjustment since it has eye tracking. It could measure precise IPD and adjust lense separation on its own. If Sony doesn't cheap out and not include motors that can do that.

Anyone concerned with micro scratches or otherwise can probably just buy lens protectors. Similar to prescription lenses but in this case just for protection rather then vision correction. Sounds like a worthwhile investment for someone who has already reported such damage.

I have a number of family members that were professional photographers so I've had a lot of expensive glass around me even at a young age. My Wife also bought a ~$1000 USD Canon DSLR (forget which model) some years ago which is still in great shape. What I know is that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. So ideally don't let anything touch the lens and you'll never have to worry about cleaning it.

If you have to clean it, get a professional cleaning kit, use said kit properly and hopefully sparingly.

BTW, before physically applying anything to a lens, attempt to dislodge any possible debris by way of compressed air or air bulb. Sometimes fine unseen particles can scratch lenses so ideally this should be removed with a zero contact method before actual contact cleaning. After the air, you can move on to lens cleaning paper (disposable), microfiber or lens brush. A lens cleaning pen is also a good investment if used properly. Typically these have a fine brush built in on the opposite side.

While the PSVR2, sony produce now the PS4 Slim and PRO till the end of 22 cause the PS5 robbery from scalpers, this isnt good for Sony.
Scalpers buy, but dont subscribe PS Plus or PS Now and even dont Buy Games in the Store/ Disc Store.

It's difficult to get a PS5 at or near MSRP but not impossible. It requires sound methodology, perseverance and a wee bit of luck. My Wife and I managed to buy three PS5 units. We kept 2 and gave one to my Niece (she reimbursed us the cost). I wanted to keep only one but,....

You make a good point though.

Keep in mind that PSVR demand was no where near the demand for the PS4 in its various forms (slim / pro). Not everyone with a PS4 wanted the PSVR and the MSRP was steep. Therefore the actual user demand for the PSVR2 would have to be a subset of the prerequisite PS5 unless Sony does something special like making it quasi Oculus Quest stand alone + PC + PS5 support.
