Sony Announces Next Generation PlayStation VR Headset

Virtual reality is getting more virtual.

Hideaki Nishino, the Senior Vice President, Platform Planning & Management at Sony Interactive Entertainment, has announced the existence of PSVR 2, and it's not coming this year. The next generation of PlayStation Virtual Reality will enhance the resolution, field of view, tracking, input, and essentially everything else. Nishino says that players will "feel an even greater sense of presence and become even more immersed in their game worlds once they put on the new headset," which I guess will have to be seen to be believed in this case.

Compared to PSVR 1, PSVR 2 will be simpler, as it will only connect to the PS5 with a single cord, making it an easier experience to set up and play. It's too bad it's not wireless, though. Maybe an adapter will come out later? We'll have to see. 

There's also a new VR controller that will incorporate some DualSense features, with a focus on ergonomics. Apparently that's just one example of what Sony is attempting to accomplish with the new technology going into PSVR 2.

The "development community" is already working on new games to come onto the PSVR 2, which makes sense but it's lame that they haven't really announced anything to go with this announcement. Just the fact that PSVR 2 exists and its development and nothing else. We'll probably see more going into E3 this year.
