A Sony patent for a PS5 VR headset has gone public, showing us what plans they may have in store for a PSVR 2 device that would likely work with the PlayStation 5.
would make sense to utilize inside out tracking since connecting multiple cameras / sensors to the console isn't feasible.
Would also make your whole house into a vr space. Just walk around and you're always being tracked. Including your hands.
Yep. Oculus Quest does this fantastically.
@above. Not really. Quest is limited to 25’ square. I mean turn your WHOLE house into a VR space. Could make for some revolutionary uses.
@Babadook7 - The Quest uses the same inside out tracking I am referring to. The Rift is the unit that needs to be tethered to your PC, the Quest is completely free of wires.
The two ways is the best option.
Given the latest headsets from occulus and valve use inside out tracking it's highly likely they we would get headset mounted cameras
It would be interesting if the cameras were added to improve tracking and setup. But I definitely hope light isn't a factor unless it's perfect. PSVR is awesome. The movement of the controllers because of the light isn't always awesome. Whatever tech they use, if they can get it around $199/$299 with controllers, it would definitely help sell VR on consoles with the obvious bullet points of better screens, resolution, frame rates, etc. And that new DS5 controller sounds killer.
on the one hand i'm impressed sony has stuck by their tech with psvr but on the other hand i like tv screen gaming more.
That's great to hear because both are about to advance.
Thats not a problem. You dont have to prefer one over the other. VR can exist next to traditional television gaming, not a replacement. Im just looking forward to ease of use improvements.
IR sensors would be more ideal because then the brightness of your room doesn't play as much of a factor. Sadly Sony had to try to shoehorn in existing tech to their VR solution, and while it works pretty darn well most of the time, obviously there are situations that are less than ideal.
It is happening - just not right away. PS5 will support PSVR, Sony just isn't ready to talk about PSVR2. They've clearly stated this multiple times.
Ps5 VR was already happening as the current headset was confirmed compatible. I'm hoping to see a version 2 in time but for the moment in happy with my v1.2 headset. However the option to add more cameras would be welcome to enhance motion tracking What I would like to see is a unified accessory to save having 3 different controller types better 360 tracking and an upres and wider fov display.
The current headset is already set to work.
I heard the sun came up today.
Will it be wireless?
Psvr 2 plz
I hope it's more comfortable my launch headset is too tight even on the loosest setting and it really bothers me during play. Aside from that it's just a hassle to connect and get playing to the point where i don't even want to play anymore by the time I'm done hooking it up lol
I thought PSVR2 was patented ages back? Wasn't it reported on here 6 months or so ago when compatability with PSVR1 was confirmed for PS5?
So long as there are analogue sticks on the Move controllers this time so we can move without clicking, more games could easily support VR and it could get the boom they've been wanting.
