Though the PS5 is mosting likely to stick with the current PSVR for now, most would assume (and hope) that a next-gen Virtual Reality headset is something that will at some point come from Sony, specifically seeing as they appear to want to maintain investing in Virtual Reality as they have actually been doing for a while now.
However when (or if) that theoretical PSVR 2 does occur, what improvements are we anticipating to see with it? According to nDreams’ Lewis Brundish– game supervisor on the just recently released Oculus-exclusive stealth shooter Phantom: Covert Ops — what Sony needs to focus on is convenience of use for the players as opposed to concentrating much more on refining power as well as far better visuals.
” I think among the largest obstacles to entrance for new players into VR is the configuration– connecting wires right into the back of gaming consoles, positioning electronic cameras etc,” Brundish told GamingBolt in a current meeting. “The Oculus Quest has taken a fantastic action in removing those obstacles, and I wish that a lot of future VR technology follows suit. Producing an experience which is simple for gamers to interact with is more crucial to me than graphical or handling power alone.”
It’s hard to disagree keeping that. Several others have actually additionally talked about the PSVR and also how it needs substantial upgrades with future variations, whenever that takes place.
A variety of licenses from Sony have actually suggested that they might be purchasing some such improvements for PlayStation Virtual Reality, including a wireless headset and controllers similar to Valve Index– though these are just patents, of course, which isn’t much using confirmation.
Our complete meeting with Brundish will certainly be going live quickly, so remain tuned for that.
