Sony Interactive Entertainment has recently shared an early look at the user experience of the PlayStation VR2.
PlayStation VR2 New Features
The latest blog posted on PlayStation Blog revealed new details about the upcoming PlayStation VR2 revealing new features. It includes the See-through view, broadcast feature, customized play area, and VR Mode and Cinematic Mode.
The PS VR2 allows players to see their surrounds while wearing the headset with its new see-through feature. This is possible due to the PS VR2’s embedded front cameras. It will make it easier for them to check where the PS VR2 Sense controllers are in the room without taking off the headset. Just press the function button on the headset or the Card in the Control Center to switch between viewing the surrounds or the content on the PS VR2.
The Card in the Control Center will give players quick access to other PS VR2 settings like adjusting the play area. Note that the See-Through View is only for viewing only and it will not have a record option.
Players can now broadcast their gameplay with the PS VR2 by filming themselves while playing. They can do this by connecting the PS5 HD Camera to the console. Best to show how they react and move during boss battles to the world.
Customized Play Area
Players can now customize the play area for the PS VR2 by using the PS VR2 Sense controllers and the embedded cameras. The cameras will scan the room while the PS VR2 Sense controllers will expand and further customize the play area to fit the play style and room environment.
When players get close to the boundary that they have set up while they play, they will get a warning that they are approaching it. They can modify those settings if they want at any time while the PS VR2 is connected. After setting it up, the settings will get saved unless they move to another location.
VR Mode and Cinematic Mode
There are two modes to choose from, which are the VR Mode and Cinematic Mode. VR Mode allows players to enjoy VR game content in a 360 view in a virtual environment. The content will be displayed in 4000 x 2040 HDR video format, which is 2000 x 2040 per eye, with 90Hz/120Hz frame rate.
