COG writes: Does the PlayStation VR 2 have what it takes to bring VR gaming to AAA levels? Let's take a look at what we know.
Agreed. The specs of the headset combined with the power of PS5 + foveated rendering combined with eye tracking = massive leap forward. Sony already spoke of their hybrid AAA gaming plans - and now we know they have the tools to deliver.
Yeah the foveated rendering combined with the eye tracking is a generational leap on top of a generational leap.
The tech sounds amazing to be fair, im more curious about the cost ps vr 1 cost about 700 here in australia and id be very suprised if this doesnt cost more. I never purchased the original but just of the tech it sounds like sony has nailed this and with new studios aquisitions i think itll have great content also, i just hope its 700 or under however unlikely that may be
I think $599 to $699
Can't cost more than PS5.
Why do people keep thinking this will cost higher than one with a computer and storage built in? It will not cost more than a ps5 ($500) and Im fairly certain they will release at $400. The only thing that could make pricing interesting is if they make it compatible with pc. In that case it could be higher priced.
Can we get a browser that streams video? Asking for a friend.
Lol, of course you are
Or a cinema mode that we never got for psvr.
The original PSVR already did with several full length AAA titles but obviously the improved fidelity of PSVR2 will only further push the medium to new heights.
True. Most people don't realise that not only did Skyrim and RE7 were full VR, but there was also Doom 3 and Borderlands 2 and wipeout
Blood and Truth, Farpoint, Moss, and Astro I would also call AAA.
Also Spiderman, Rick & Morty, Iron Man, Rush of Blood, Sniper Elite, The last Guardian, EVE Valkyrie, etc
It will be phenomenal
It definitely has the ability to, hopefully Sony gives it the support it deserves.
Yup and tripleA vr games like god of war,RE8,batman vr2, just to name a few
A step closer for sure but another gen away imo VR3
Imagine if people said that when we got pixelated 3D for the first time. Lol
Some believe that PS1 and PS2 shouldn't have existed and Sony should have started or jumped to PS3. Which wouldn't make any sense. Same with modern headsets. It's only ready when it's glasses, wireless and looks real. VR is here now across PC, mobile and console. But it still gets, "it's not there yet." Basically this https://preview.redd.it/pt5...
Lol that is so right on the money.
Honestly PSVR2 will help but i don't think so because 70% of people could careless about VR
70% of who. 30% is still HUGE.
70% of people who fart and watch SpongeBob SquarePants thats who 😂😂😂
I remeber the same comment last gen, except back then the claim was “less than 1% care” In the meantime I enjoyed the heck out of the games that I did play on VR.
Looking forward to the unveiling, hopefully in the next couple of months.
As others have said above, OF COURSE IT WILL. If the hardware launches as stated, it will vault over most if not all the best headsets. Very few high end headsets have eye tracking or any games taking advantage of it. We know Sony will take advantage of it. Same with HDR. Same with headset rumble. Sony's Sense haptics are not found on any other controller. With Dual Sense being a hit, it too will dominate the immersion factor for controllers. Sony's sound engine in PS5 has already wowed gamers in flat games like Returnal. That's going to be standard in the top games of PSVR 2. PSVR 1 has 3D sound. But Tempest will dwarf that sound. Sony's in-house developers are some of the best and have been awarded for their efforts. It's expected that they will continue their success. And with 3RD Party connections, we can expect a high level of games from them too. PC and mobile don't have that level of expertise. But they'll benefit from Sony's push for high quality as developers release across platforms. PSVR 2 only helps them because there's a drought of high quality games. Sony's high tide will raise all boats. But you're going to have to pay for that quality. It's not going to be cheap. Hybrid games or not. Expect $40-70 dollar high end games.
Yeah im excepting PSVR2 to be $500 even that is too much in today's time because of covid-19
I'm expecting $399. $499 at the most. But if gamers want better games, those games are not going to be $10 or $20. Indie Games maybe. But it's not just the headset that gamers need to pay for. A hybrid game is a flat game. So that's $60-70. A game built from the ground up tells me $40 and up.
@ApocalypseShadow noway will PSVR2 $400 because the first one cost that much plus another thing this one will be more powerful 4kHDR you should know by now Sony not gonna put out more powerful system and charge the same price
yes and no. It will take console VR to another level, but unless the devs put in the work, then the answer will always be a grey area.
no its not VRs just a gimmick actually gamers don't care for it
Not even close to true. You may as well call the original Nintendo "just a gimmick". The hardware is improving. When done right, games benefit substantially from VR. Play Half Life Alyx from start to finish and see if you still consider VR to be a gimmick. If everyone thought the way you do about the very first gaming consoles, we wouldn't have PS5 of Xbox series X or gaming pc today.
I think the controller is gonna change a lot for PSVR players. Having L3 and R3 will make all the difference in game play. You can technically play any style of game with those additions
The tech seems impressive but I might be one of the few gamers that have 0 interest in VR.
If it's not wireless I don't care.
We have Half life alex that game is AA A
I need more games like Moss. I like the implementation of a god-like presence interacting with the world set in a traditional game environment
That's a potential problem with SONY's policies. They might be quite tight when it comes to external 360 movie viewing and VR PORN which I am sure many people would love to view on PSVR 2. Hopefully there is a workaround for those who are determined like there is now for PSVR 1. VR Porn is quite the driver for VR headsets any way. People seem to get caught up in "VR = gaming only" when in fact it has many uses outside of gaming.
