Because the headset didn’t excite the players

There are reasons why the viewer PS VR 2 did not enjoy the hoped-for success. First of all because there aren’t many virtual reality video games, especially the high budget ones. When First Contact Entertainment, developer of the Firewall series, announced the closure, it did so by taking a few pebbles out of its shoes and asserting that as an industry there is a lack of support for virtual reality.

Features of the PS VR 2 headset

Here are some features of the latest PlayStation headset:

  • Visual fidelity: for a high-fidelity viewing experience, PS VR2 offers 4K HDR and a 110-degree field of view. With an OLED display, gamers can expect a resolution of 2000×2040 per eye and smooth frame rates of 90/120Hz.
  • Headset-based controller tracking: PS VR2 tracks the player and controller through the cameras built into the VR headset. Your movements and the direction you look are reflected in the game without the need for an external camera.
  • New sensory features: PS VR2 Sense technology combines eye tracking, headset feedback, 3D audio and the innovative PS VR2 Sense controller to create an incredibly deep feeling of immersion. Headset feedback is a new sensory feature that amplifies the sensations of the player’s in-game actions. It is created by a single integrated motor with vibrations that add an intelligent tactile element, bringing players closer to the gaming experience. For example, players can feel a character’s high pulse during tense moments, the rush of objects passing by the character’s head, or the thrust of a vehicle as the character accelerates forward. Additionally, PS5’s Tempest 3D AudioTech brings sounds in the player’s surroundings alive, adding to this new level of immersion.
  • Eye Tracking : With eye tracking, PS VR2 detects the movement of your eyes, so a simple glance in a specific direction can create additional input for the game character. This allows players to interact more intuitively in new and realistic ways, allowing for greater emotional response and enhanced expression that provide a new level of realism in the game.
