in text in . format PS . BlogHideaki Nishino, Senior Vice President of Platform Experience at PlayStation, explained that the headset has a feel-like shape, similar to an orb. According to him, “The shape of the orb represents the 360-degree visuals that players will experience as they enter the VR world“.
Also according to Nishino, the PlayStation VR2 headset model is inspired by a family of products PS5 – You can really see the similarity, especially with black and white. It is completed as follows:
When our design team created the PS5, they also had a VR headset in mind, so you’ll notice some similarities in look and feel. The PlayStation 5 has flat edges that rest on a flat surface, while there has been more emphasis on adding roundness to the PS VR2’s design as it must be in constant contact with the player – similar to the rounded edges of the DualSense and Pulse 3D headset.
Sony also claims to have run several tests to make sure the headset is comfortable for anyone – regardless of their head size. The weight of the device has been balanced, while the headband will be adjustable. Not only that, but the device’s range is also adjustable, meaning you can position the viewfinder closer or further away from your face.
More details about the PlayStation VR2 headset
Hideaki Nishino went on to explain the PlayStation VR2 news. According to him, the comfort has been improved as there is now a lens adjustment control, “So that users have an additional option to match the distance of the lens between their eyes to improve their visionIn addition, the headphone design is slimmer and there is a new built-in headphone feedback engine.
Finally, Sony has implemented a ventilation design on the device. According to Yujin Morisawa, Senior Art Director at SIE, this is his favorite part of the new model.
When I started working on the PlayStation VR2 headset design, one area I wanted to focus on was creating a vent on the headset to let air out, similar to the vents on the PS5 that allow air to flow in. Our engineers came up with this idea as a good way to allow ventilation and prevent lens fogging. In the final design, you can see that there is a small gap between the top surface and the front surface of the screen which has integrated ventilation.
PlayStation VR2 will include 4K HDR visuals, improved tracking, haptic feedback for headphones and Sense controllers, as well as a single cable so gamers can connect to their games instantly.
