Sony

The next iteration of Sony's VR ventures, the PS VR2, is set to launch this year, bringing with it a number of games throughout its launch window.

Announced during the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show, the PS VR2 is the upcoming VR headset made for the PlayStation 5. The headset will improve on a number of features seen in the PS VR, including the use of haptic feedback, adaptive triggers and OLED display.

The first generation PS VR tracked player movements through an external PlayStation Camera. The PS VR2 will track movements by four cameras mounted on the headset.

Regarding the headset's design, in a PlayStation Blog SIE Vice President of Brand, Hardware and Peripherals said, "We’ve created the PS VR2 headset with comfort in mind, in a slightly slimmer and lighter design compared to our previous headset. We’ve also included an integrated vent for extra air flow, and a lens adjustment dial for a more customized feel. We hope players will enjoy this new design."

So, when does the headset release?
