KGrizzly spotted a PlayStation VR Safety Notice in the PS4 Firmware v3.50 Beta 2 for Sony's upcoming virtual reality platform geared towards PlayStation consoles.
With a release expected later this year, today's poll question is... Do you plan to get Sony's PlayStation Virtual Reality headset?
Below are some of the accessory's features from Sony's official site:
PlayStation VR Headset Key Features:
- Advanced Display
PlayStation VR combines a landscape-scanning, full-HD LCD 1080p display and a uniquely developed optical unit with an approximate 100 degree field of view to create a vast 3D space in front of your eyes.
- Built for PlayStation
PlayStation VR allows you to experience the future of gaming through virtual reality with just the visor, your PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation Camera.
- 360 Degrees of Audio
Utilizing technology developed for the platform, PlayStation VR delivers a deeply immersive audio experience, putting you in the middle of the world with sound that comes from any direction in a 360-degree sphere.
- Industrial Design
PlayStation VR features a visor-style design, engineered to be balanced and comfortable for extended use. Its dual-banded form also adjusts to fit comfortably around various head sizes and over glasses.
- Movement and Position Tracking
The visor’s high-sensitivity accelerometer and gyroscope run at a frequency of 1000Hz, allowing PlayStation VR to detect your head’s movement with almost no latency. When used with a PlayStation Camera, your head’s movement, and the movement of controller can be tracked and reflected in the game’s images in real time.
- Multiplayer Gaming
Multiple PlayStation VR units connected to PS4 systems can be networked to play in the same virtual world. Additionally, PlayStation VR can also display what you’re looking at as a 2D image on your TV screen, allowing others to participate.
