Sony today announced its next-generation of VR headset for the PS5. The new move comes after more than four years when it launched the PlayStation VR to offer a transformative new way to play games on PS4.
The company in a statement said the new VR headset for PS5 will only be available next year, as there’s still a lot of development underway for its new VR system and they just wanted to provide this early update so that the development community can start work on creating new content.
Hideaki Nishino, Senior Vice President, Platform Planning & Management at Sony said, “Today I’m pleased to share that our next-generation VR system will be coming to PlayStation 5, enabling the ultimate entertainment experience with dramatic leaps in performance and interactivity. Players will feel an even greater sense of presence and become even more immersed in their game worlds once they put on the new headset.”
“We’re continuing to innovate with our new VR system so that our fans can continue to enjoy the unique experiences that are synonymous with PlayStation. We’re taking what we’ve learned since launching PS VR on PS4 to develop a next-gen VR system that enhances everything from resolution and field of view to tracking and input. It will connect to PS5 with a single cord to simplify setup and improve ease-of-use, while enabling a high-fidelity visual experience.” he said.
“One of the innovations we’re excited about is our new VR controller, which will incorporate some of the key features found in the DualSense wireless controller, along with a focus on great ergonomics. That’s just one of the examples of future-proof technology we’re developing to match our vision for a whole new generation of VR games and experiences.” Nishino concluded.
