Although Sony hasn't officially confirmed PlayStation VR 2 as of yet, a new patent could offer some indication of what to expect with the headset.
Keen for an upgrade I love the psvr but as a long term owner the tracking issues are sometimes just not worth the frustration in newer games that are designed for PC hardware games like twd Saints and sinners in particular. Plus the move controller is just not good for VR movement I've never liked it and unfortunately the aim controller never took off outside of a handful of games.
I think PSVR 2 needs inside-out tracking with front, side, and rear sensors. That way there's no cameras to set-up, and you'd always have perfect controller tracking. And they really need proper VR controllers like you get with Oculus and Index.
That's probably why they positioned the controller LED's on top next to the touchpad. The headset will probably have integrated cameras which means the can't see the front of the controller
Agree but the camera during reveal suggests a camera is still involved somehow.
I've always thought just go with a blue light band all the way round if that's possible that is
Sprinter boy that may work, but the downside is it will make it hard for you to go to sleep after playing a game late. https://thesleepdoctor.com/...
YES! The straight up ignorance of the nav controllers existence frusted me to no end with all these terrible ways to navigate
I think I only ever used my nav controllers on like 2 games socom confrontation and killzone I believe. Nothing really used it after them games?
Games like the walking dead saints and sinner is two times harder on Psvr than pcvr because of these horrible move controllers and the camera detection.
Yes absolutely I think the last game with full locomotion I played with move controllers was la noire and the entire experience was painstakingly frustrating because of the move controllers so much so it ruined the game. The only game I've enjoyed my time with while using move controllers have been on rail experiences like rush of blood or blood and truth those were fantastic
Ive always wanted psvr but I have a quest. Would it be too frustrating to try to go to the psvr now? My plan was to get a ps5 and psvr cheap while I wait for psvr 2 and play the exclusives. I already own the move controllers.
It really depends on what you want to play the quest can be used for pcvr if you have a more powerful rig capable of tethering the quest to it then I wouldn't bother with psvr in its current state. However there are some excellent exclusive games like astrobot, firewall, resident evil 7, farpoint and blood and truth which don't have any of these issues in my experience when played with gamepad or aim controller. Those are the game I absolutely loved and make owning the psvr worth it for me the remainder of my library is available on PC and the experience is probably better on PC. but given the low cost of admission psvr gives its pretty incredible that Sony pulled off VR to this level on such limited hardware. I have heard that using the quest on PC is pretty hit and miss plus you still need a VR capable PC if you're missing that then I'd say go psvr but if you have a vr capable PC then tether the quest and try it.
I love the psvr. Hopefully the new one doesn’t have the wire.
There was a interview with a Sony guy last year and he a said athere would likely be a premium model and base model on psvr2 so I'm guessing the premium model will be wireless and base model cables?
Launching November 2021
I wouldnt mind one bit :) butfor some reason I doubt itlll be this soon.
My guess is it'll be around April/May 2022 to give the PS5 two full holiday seasons worth of sales. Could have over 20 million customers to sell to by that point
Yep around Halloween in time for the village
I wonder how much the ps5 will improve psvr right now. I’d think it will be an impressive jump
I doubt it. It won't improve the resolution, you will still have the screen door effect. Perhaps more fidelity but it will not improve the main specs of the current version of PSVR.
I agree with you but I don’t want that. I’m hopeful for magic and better frame rate/gfx.
Please make it wireless this time around.
If you read the patent it sounds like an AR system using a VR headset. Probably nothing to do with PSVR 2...
I remember about a week after they announced the first one, a Sony rep showed up at my local Bestbuy to allow people to demo it. I have to admit, that it was impressive at the time and a hell of alot of fun. I'm sure the next version will bring it up to date. Possibly Half-Life Alex as a launch title?
Cordless? I can’t read the boxes. If it’s a light weight cordless headset man... how dope would that be with haptic feedback controller? Is that tech is even possible right now? Light wireless VR like the picture I mean? I have no idea. The first psvr is a clunkster.
My ask - wireless - eye tracking - 140 FOV - new tracking tech
well that look's like a pain in the butt.
Ps5 will have a VR solution whilst series X won't but they say "who needs VR" anyway..
Make PSVR1 PS5 compatible from Day One and launch PSVR2 on november 2021... with new generation tracking, ARM Cortex-x CPU, 12 hours working batteries, no lag wireless and 5G... for autonomous and connected function like Oculus Quest...
@SirBruce PSVR is already compatible day one with PS5. It was announced a while ago. Here is a quote from the article I have linked: “Speaking to Wired, Mark Cerny (lead system architect at Sony working on the upcoming console) confirmed that all existing versions of the PlayStation VR will be compatible with the next-gen console.“ https://www.google.com/amp/...
Nice... but PSVR2 should be a real next gen hardware and software, not only a new version of the same.
... and $500. Nope. PSVR is a PS add-on and needs just its processing power... for cost sake.
VR/AR hardware is really cheaper every year, as components get standarized. Infrared/RGB/GreyL cameras are the same as on handred of millions smartphones today. 4K/8K capable proccesors are available on medium/low end smartphones totay. 5G chips begin to be standard with smartphones with it in the low 300$, not 1000$. 5/7/60/190GHz wireless video up to 10 meters is a reality with systems under 150$. PS5 promises 90Hz stereo images at 1440p x 2 resolution rock solid, with scale technics to 2160p x 2. 2021 can be a perfect storm for Sony to introduce the first VR/AR system that 99% of population can use with not headache or fatigue.
i hope they get rid of the camera for vr! insideout tracking is a must
I'd love to see the PlayStation VR2 become a big success. The current VR iterations haven't cracked into the mainstream. Perhaps Sony's device will be the one to do it.
We need this
Cordless is what I want
I see wireless!
Probably the most exciting thing about new consoles is what can be done in VR.
I wish it would be compatible with pc and on par with the valve index. I just want one high quality headset for multiple platforms pls
