Today Sony shared an early look at the PlayStation VR2 user experience, featuring a new PS VR2 see-through view and PSVR2 broadcasting option for their next-generation virtual reality device. :cool:

This comes following the PSVR Secure Boot Hacked With All Keys Extracted, the PVR2 Sense Controller on PS5, PlayStation VR2 Headset Design details, last month's PS VR2 PlayStation State of Play Reveals and from SIE Staff Senior Product Manager Yasuo Takahashi to quote:

The road to launch for PlayStation VR2 is in full swing, and we can’t wait for you to try the exciting new games and experiences you’ll be able to explore with our next-generation virtual reality headset.

As we continue with our launch efforts, today, we’d like to offer a quick peek at some of the user experience features you’ll discover on PS VR2. Let’s take a look.

See-Through View

With PS VR2, you can see your surroundings while wearing the headset with our new see-through feature. It comes in handy when you want to easily check where the PS VR2 Sense controllers are in your room without taking the headset off.

Thanks to PS VR2’s embedded front cameras, users can press the function button on the headset, or use the Card in the Control Center, to switch between viewing your surroundings, or viewing the content on PS VR2. The Card in the Control Center also gives quick access to other PS VR2 settings, such as adjusting your play area.

The see-through view is just for viewing only, so there’s no recording option.

Broadcast Yourself While Playing

A new broadcast feature for PS VR2 will allow you to film yourself while playing, by connecting a PS5 HD Camera to the console. It’s a great way to show your movements and reactions during a boss battle and share your reactions with your fellow gamers as it happens!

Customized Play Area

The play area for PS VR2 can be customized by using the PS VR2 Sense controllers and the embedded cameras. The cameras will allow you to scan the room, while the PS VR2 Sense controllers allow you to expand and further customize the play area to fit your play style and room environment.

While playing, if you get close to the boundary you have set up, you will receive a warning that you are closely approaching the play area boundary. You can modify your settings at any time while PS VR2 is connected. Once you set up your play area, the settings will be saved unless you move into a different play area.

VR Mode and Cinematic Mode

In VR Mode, players can enjoy VR game content in a 360 view in a virtual environment. Content will be displayed in 4000 x 2040 HDR video format (2000 x 2040 per eye) with 90Hz/120Hz frame rate.

In Cinematic Mode, players can view the PS5 system and UI and all non-VR game and media content on a virtual cinema screen. Content in Cinematic Mode will be displayed in 1920×1080 HDR video format with 24/60Hz and also 120Hz frame rate.

PS VR2 game developers will begin to access the latest user experience for PS VR2 in a new system software release coming soon as part of the ongoing development. There are lots of exciting things to look forward to for PS VR2, and we can’t wait to share more details about our next-generation virtual reality headset that takes a dramatic leap forward in gameplay innovation.

We’ll share more information soon, including launch date and additional games coming to the platform.

Still no VR for me... although I will admit this 3D billboard caught my interest, so maybe will reconsider it in the future. :eek:

@PSXHAX im extremely motion sick, specially when games doesnt have a good image stabilization and not correct aspect ratios (the latest happened more in gear vr from samsung for example but still does) so im waiting for a good VR i can test one day and doesnt make me puke my insides and nausea lol

the first psvr has an extremely bad quality for example and i can notice the texture of the glass in the lenses, it annoys me a bit. Also makes sweat drip into them which makes all clogged its painful :D

@CyB1K I use an old cotton tshirt sleeve torn off and worn on the hand like a bandana (or franga, whatever takes your fancy!) so it takes all the forehead sweat (and oil) and doesn't fog up the lenses. Helps to for multiple users like the kids.

For the motion sickness i'd just build up in increments of use time as I don't get sea sick at all yet Borderlands 2 will have me at vomit status in a half hour or so... I use mine from my bed (electric fully sat upright) so I'm not standing and can't destroy anything lol
