The Sony PlayStation VR2 virtual reality glasses for the PlayStation 5 that were announced at the beginning of the year will not be launched until next year, as the manufacturer has now officially announced via its Japanese PlayStation account on Twitter.
Thus, we finally have an estimated time of when we can get our hands — and eyes — on the PlayStation VR2. However, at the moment, there is no specific date, so we will have to settle for this information.
The device will receive OLED displays with support for 4K resolution and a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz. The field of view will be 110 degrees. Sony says the headset will connect to the console with just a USB-C cable.
The company also presented VR controllers in the form of spheres with tactile response and a touch recognition system — the device will “understand” where the player’s thumb, index or middle fingers are located without having to press the buttons.
Sony has already announced that the virtual reality viewer will be accompanied by about twenty major titles at its debut. Among them are games in the Horizon franchise and Walking Dead universes, as well as VR versions of No Man’s Sky and Resident Evil Village.
The headset will only be compatible with the PlayStation 5 console. The price of the PlayStation VR2 has not yet been announced.
