PlayStation VR 2: back to first press impressions

Some of our colleagues had the opportunity to try out the PlayStation VR 2. Here are their first impressions of the highly anticipated next-gen VR headset from sony.

At this point, we still don’t know the official launch date for the PlayStation VR 2. However, Japanese emerging tech giant Sony recently announced that it will hit the market. early 2023. Even though it’s still a few months away from its release, it’s worth the wait given its specifications what we have seen so far. Our colleagues who have had the opportunity to try it have also confirmed how powerful it is.

PlayStation VR 2 tested with four demos

Since the PlayStation VR 2 won’t hit the market until next year, testing was of course done on a prototype. So maybe some things change again then. In any case, Sony has given the opportunity to try out the VR hardware with four expected game demos.

These include Horizon Call of the Mountain, The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2, Resident Evil Village and Star Wars: Tales From the Galaxy’s Edge – Enhanced Edition. These VR games have allowedTo have an idea the overall performance of the famous VR headset, and that’s the least we can say.

Impressive visual quality

According to one of our colleagues, the first thing you’ll notice when you put on Sony’s next generation VR headset is the impressive visual quality it offers. Hardware HDR OLED display offers unsurpassed contrastand the lenses remain clear throughout the user’s field of vision.

Unlike LCD helmets that display dark gray, the VR device can also display deep black thanks to the OLED screen. This means that when you find yourself in the dark world of games like Resident Evil Village and The Walking Dead, you feel like you really are in the dark.

The problem with this new screen is that you may encounter fixed background noise. Sometimes known as mura, this may be annoying for people sensitive to visual details. However, with its wider field of view than PSVR original and helmets like Meta Quest 2PSVR 2 provides the best immersion.

Immersive haptic technology and comfortable eye tracking

The new haptic technology built into PlayStation VR 2 brings you an unparalleled experience. Thanks to the high-precision vibration of PSVR 2 Sense, we have, among other things, the possibility feel the tension strings when shooting in Horizon Call Of The Mountain.

The headset’s built-in vibration motor also looks like it’s for real. hit enemies. In addition, the hardware eye tracking system helps the user to position it correctly on the face. In fact, it can help him adjust the position of the lenses perfectly.

Accurate pass

Unlike its predecessor, Sony’s new VR device has built-in tracking cameras. They are also used to monitor real world. They also allow the user to customize their play space, for which they have the option to activate the transparent view if necessary.

The PSVR 2 walkthrough has no color. However, he offers significantly higher resolution compared to Meta Quest 2. When setting up a new play space, the system is also capable of automatically analyzing the room and suggesting reasonable limits. Note, however, that the result is not always perfect. If this is the case, you can always fix it manually using the VR headset controllers.

PlayStation VR 2 review

Double image problem

According to one of our colleagues who had the opportunity to try out the PlayStation VR 2, its controllers offered “perfect” accompaniment in all the demos he played. He quickly added that he was sure they would do just fine with any Quest 2 game.

Despite the performance of PSVR 2 Sense, the VR headset itself still had an issue with double vision and halo effect. Unfortunately, this makes it difficult to read texts in motion, which has a certain impact on its smoothness.

Apparently the double image problem is due to projection mode 60 FPS @ 120Hz from a VR device. At the moment, it is not yet known how many VR games will use this mode. In any case, it’s a pity that the hardware is wired. The fact that it doesn’t have a built-in audio system is also pretty unfortunate. We are always required to wear two helmets at the same time when using them.
