Sony has finally unveiled the PSVR2 design for the headset and its controllers, showing off the next generation of the platform in virtual reality. Check out the image below posted via the PlayStation Blog, along with the first details on the PlayStation VR2.
Here is the design of the PSVR2 headset and its controllers:
Hideaki Nishino, the senior vice president of Platform Experience, had this to say about the design of PSVR2:
The design of the PS VR2 headset was also inspired by the look of the PS5 product family. When our design team created the PS5 console, they also had the next-gen VR headset in mind, so you’ll notice some similarities in look and feel. The PS5 console has flat edges as it is meant to be displayed on a flat surface, while the focus was more on adding roundness to the design of the PS VR2 headset as it is meant to have constant human contact, similar to the rounded edges of the DualSense Controller and Pulse 3D headset.
Our goal is to create a headset that will not only become an eye-catching part of your living room decor, but will also keep you immersed in your gaming world, so much so that you’ll almost forget you’re using a headset or a controller. That’s why we paid close attention to the ergonomics of the helmet and performed extensive testing to ensure a comfortable feel for a variety of head sizes. We’ve already had a lot of positive feedback on the ergonomics of the first PS VR headset by carefully balancing the weight of the headset and having a simple, adjustable headband, so we’ve kept the same concept for the PS VR2 headset. Other features such as the adjustable headset reach that places the reach area closer or farther from the face and the placement of the stereo headset jack also remain the same, so gamers will become familiar with it.
At first glance, it’s obvious that the PSVR2 is very much inspired by the PlayStation 5, not only in terms of the black and white color scheme, but also the overall aesthetic.
Pleasant designs aren’t the only thing the PSVR2 has to offer, as it has a number of cool features. Find out how it compares to other VR headsets in comparison here.
