Playstation upgrades flagship VR headset
Sony has added a range of new features to its flagship Playstation virtual reality headset.
The new VR2 headset has a range of new features including an air vent, allowing adequate ventilation for gamers.
“When I started to work on the design for the PlayStation VR2 headset, one of the areas I wanted to focus on first was the idea of creating a vent in the headset to let air out, similar to the vents on the PS5 console that allows airflow”, said Yujin Morisawa, senior art director at Sony who led the design of the PS VR2, in an interview with PC Gamer, adding, “Our engineers came up with this idea as a good way to allow ventilation and avoid having the lens fog up while players are immersed in their VR games […] in the final design, you can see there is a little space in between the top and front surface of the scope that contains the integrated ventilation”.
Other than a vent, the new Sony product features 4K HDR and 2,000 x 2,040 resolution per eye, along with a contrast-friendly OLED panel, enhanced inside-out tracking, up to 120Hz refresh rate, headset feedback and other VR2 Sense Technology, and a single cord setup, as reported by PC Gamer.
