CES 22> PlayStation VR2, features and first game unveiled (trailer)

Sony is taking advantage of CES in Las Vegas 2022 to reveal, via Jim Ryan, CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, the technical specifications of its next virtual reality headset for PlayStation 5.

Sony announces that the virtual reality headset for PlayStation 5 will be called - without too many surprises - PSVR2.

Sony PlayStation VR2, main specifications

No images yet unveiled (even if we have known for a while what the controllers will look like) but the manufacturer has released some technical characteristics, starting with the presence of OLED screens with a resolution of 2,000 x 2,040 pixels per eye, a refresh rate of 90 Hz to 120 Hz and a viewing angle of approximately 110 degrees.

Sony PlayStation VR2, interaction possible via gaze

We also learn that the movement of the eyes is tracked in real time and that the gaze will allow, in particular, to interact with elements on the screen. The controllers, now called PS VR2 Sense, have haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, like on the DualSense PS5. Also note a 3D audio reproduction through the headphones, and a connection to the console via a simple USB cable, all without the need for an external camera for tracking. A big plus compared to the first PS VR.

Sony also takes the opportunity to announce the first game in development. This is Horizon Call of the Mountain, Spin-Off from the Horizon series on PlayStation. Here's a short trailer to whet your appetite.
