THE NEW PlayStation virtual reality headset isn’t even out yet, but it’s already blowing fans away.
Some of the first players to try PSVR2 have shared their thoughts following its appearance at a conference this week.
The device, which allows gamers to enter immersive, virtual worlds, was first playable at a Sony showcase at GDC in San Francisco.
Participants praised the device on social media, with one tester calling it “soooo good.”
The hymns of praise were led by Chet Faliszek, a former Valve employee who is now CEO of US games studio StrayBombay.
He tweeted on Thursday: “Played one of those VR moments today in the new PSVR2 hmd.
“You know where the world just feels different when you come back? Sooooo good.”
Others claimed to have tried the equipment themselves in response to his comments on the forums page reset era.
One fan claimed that Faliszek’s words weren’t “hyperbolic.”
It’s unclear if the headset will be playable as part of a public demo at GDC, or behind closed doors for specially selected individuals.
Sony confirmed in February 2021 that it was working on a new version of its PlayStation VR headset designed for the PlayStation 5.
The Japanese tech titan said the new gear, due out later this year, promises “dramatic leaps in performance and interactivity”.
Sony’s original PSVR system hit store shelves four years ago and is now the best-selling, high-end VR headset of all time.
The wearable gear, which can also be connected to the PS5, immerses players in virtual reality games processed through their console.
Starting at £260, players can upgrade their setup by paying for additional gear in the form of dedicated VR controllers, which come at £70 a pair.
The PSVR2 will feature an OLED display with a resolution of 2000 x 2040 pixels per eye and a refresh rate of 120Hz.
That should bring the tech up to date with the graphical capabilities of the PS5, Sony’s next-gen console.
The PSVR2 is still in development and Sony has yet to announce a price or release date.
