Sony PS5 VR2 Headset

Following the announcement back in January that a new VR headset was on the way for PS5, Sony have now officially unveiled the design for the PlayStation VR2 which is likely to launch later this year.

The design of the actual headset won’t come as too much of a surprise, but focus has been around comfort and control, with the hand controllers looking similar to that of Meta’s Oculus Rift.

Rounded, smooth edges and contours are the overall theme here, with a matt-white finish to match that of the PS5 console, controller and Pulse 3D Headset.

Sony stated in their official blog “Our goal is to create a headset that will not only become an attractive part of your living room decor, but will also keep you immersed in your game world, to the point where you almost forget you are using a headset or controller. That’s why we paid very close attention to the ergonomics of the headset and conducted extensive testing to ensure a comfortable feel for a variety of head sizes.”

They’ve added a lens adjustment dial so users can further customise the set up for their head. The overall headset is slightly lighter  and slimmer than the previous model, and that’s despite the addition of a new built-in motor for headset feedback.

The design also incorporates a vent to help keep the headset cool and avoid fogging up the lenses during those important gaming sessions. To be honest, we never seemed to have a problem with this on the current VR headset, but anything that helps keep you cool is a welcome addition.

The VR2 unfortunately isn’t totally wireless – requiring one cable to connect to your PS5 console.

In terms of power, the PlayStation VR2 will be capable of 4K HDR video and improved rendering which means games and films should look sharper than ever, closer to what you see on your TV.

Sony have promised more details on games, hardware specs and more very soon – we’ll have all the updates right here on BuzzHut.
