Sony bets big on PSVR 2, expects record demand

Our colleagues at Bloomberg report that Sony is gearing up for record demand for the second iteration of its PSVR 2 VR headset so that its customers don’t experience the same shortage as the PS5. The brand’s goal is to have 2 million PlayStation VR 2s in stock by March.

According to the economic newspaper, despite the tense international environment, Sony will not see any delays in production. Many manufacturers of equipment had to struggle for months with a shortage of electronic components. The problem mainly affects segments such as cars and smartphones. In addition, Sony would be able to solve all the difficulties that still prevent you from easily getting a PlayStation 5.

Sony promises: when PSVR 2 comes out, there will be no shortage anymore

Bloomberg sources claim that the presentation of the virtual reality headset “will coincide with the removal of bottlenecks that limit the availability of PS5 consoles on sale.” It is absolutely necessary to sell the maximum number of devices: console ownership is really necessary to work with the headset.

Gamers expect a lot from the PSVR 2 headset. The original PlayStation VR was indeed launched in 2016 – in other words, many years ago, especially in virtual reality, where technological advances are frequent and fast. The first helmet was still a very imperfect product. Several cables had to be connected to the helmets, connected to the box – in addition to the PlayStation Camera.

The user experience should be greatly improved on PlayStation VR 2. The next version of the Sony headset will require only one USB Type-C cable for everything. Motion tracking will be done directly from the headset. Most likely, an additional tracking device is not required.

In addition, PSVR 2 should offer much better, higher resolution screens. As well as compatibility with HDR streams. The new lens system should provide an expanded field of view. The device should also improve eye movement detection and provide tactile vibration feedback.

The new controllers will offer joysticks, be more ergonomic and feature high-definition haptic feedback similar to that found on the PlayStation 5 DualSense controllers. Current PSVR games will not be compatible with the new headset. But many developers are expected to release special PSVR 2 versions of their VR games right out of the box.

Sony has already assured its investors that there will be “more than 20 home games and third-party studios” when PlayStation VR 2 launches, including titles like Horizon Call of The Mountain and Resident Evil Village.
