During CES 2022, Sony officially revealed the hardware specifications of PSVR 2 and the new dedicated controllers to the gaming audience

Less than a year ago, Sony had confirmed that it was working on its successor virtual reality headset dedicated to PS5, but beyond that and a few scant images of the new controllers, not much else had been revealed. The rumor we proposed yesterday, according to which the production of the viewer should start shortly, and as if to confirm these rumors, the Japanese giant unveiled, during the course of the CES 2022, the hardware specifications of PSVR 2 and new controllers dedicated to it.

The viewer will connect to the console via a single cable (unfortunately no wireless connection) and promises numerous technical implementations that will obviously make it much better than its first incarnation. Will present the full 4K and HDR support, as well as hosting one schermo OLED with a resolution of 2000 × 2040 pixels per eye, with a refresh rate of 90 / 120Hz. Also confirmed a 110-degree FoV, improved rendering, inside-out tracking thanks to built-in cameras and eye tracking.

The viewer will also accommodate a single vibration motor, which will guarantee direct feedback to the user, so as to add tactile elements able to further amplify the sense of immersion. The PlayStation Blog reports that the player will be able to feel the beat of their avatar during the most intense moments, the movement of objects that pass near the head, or the acceleration of a vehicle.
