On February 23, Sony Interactive Entertainment lifted the veil on the new generation of PlayStation headsets VR coming to PS5. Without warning, the manufacturer announced the first information and its new ambitions with the desire to give players an even stronger sense of presence in order to immerse themselves in their game world once they have put on the new headset.
Today, our colleagues at Bloomberg unveil new information about the next headset from Sony that could arrive next year with an OLED screen.
PSVR 2 – PS5 – OLED – DualSense
According to our colleagues at Bloomberg, Sony should opt for two Samsung OLED screens to equip the PlayStation VR 2. Rather well informed about the plans of the Japanese firm, Bloomberg is able to confirm that the release of this new headset is for the time set for the second half of the year 2022 (between July and December 31, 2022). The first version of the PSVR headset was released on October 16, 2016 for the PS4.
On March 18, Sony unveiled the first details about the new controllers for the PSVR2. This new generation will be well oriented towards the “senses” since the new controllers will benefit from all the features of the DualSense. We will therefore find the haptic vibrations, but also the adaptive triggers.
Sony confirms the presence of finger contact detection in the areas where you place your thumb, index finger or middle finger. So the controller can detect your fingers without you having to press any button.
In terms of rumors, many sources indicate that Sony could opt for wireless headphones (perhaps even standalone) and that 4K is on the program. On these points, caution remains in order. Today, the main thing to remember is that PlayStation should offer OLED panels for its next headset, the release of which is set (for the moment) at the end of the year 2022. We should thus have enough new information. quickly.
