Though the PS5 does feature support for the existing PSVR headset, that’s just possible through backwards compatibility instead than natively, leading numerous to question whether a new headset developed specifically for the PS5 is in the jobs.
That headset is indeed in the works, and also Sony have actually officially confirmed that in a recent update on the PlayStation blog.
The brand-new PSVR headset will boast improvements to various things, including resolution, field of view, tracking, and input, while Sony are also highlighting higher accessibility as well as simplicity of use. Crucially, it will certainly attach to the PS5 with simply a single cord, which is a big enhancement over the cumbersome arrangement process of the present PSVR.
Sony is additionally servicing brand-new Virtual Reality controllers, which, Nishino claims, will include a few of the DualSense’s special features (presumably the flexible triggers and also haptic comments) as well as will “focus on wonderful comfort designs.”
Nishino goes on to make clear that there’s still a long way to opt for the new PSVR’s advancement, and also the statement makes it pretty clear that this is a rather early upgrade. Neither a name, neither any kind of pictures, neither an exact release day have been verified, though Nishino does confirm that it’s not mosting likely to launch in 2021.
