A new report outlining what to expect from Sony's PS5 VR headset has been released with information on the display, rendering results, and the controls.
Sony announced in February that it was working on a new The VR headset for the PS5, and the The PS5 VR features sharper resolution, wider field of view, enhanced tracking, and it can connect to the PS5 with a single cord that will simplify set up and improve easy-of-use.
Additional information on the headset was not provided at the time, but a new report has come out with details about what to expect from Sony's next VR offering .
According to PSVR Without Parole, Sony held a private conference yesterday where it gave developers the headset (thanks, Upload VR).
The report, confirming an UploadVR report from May, states that the device features a resolution of 4000 × 2040 pixels (2000 × 2040 per eye) and eye tracking support that provides fewer pixels in the surrounding areas.
PSVR Without Parole is also stated on the unnamed device, coden NGVR, featuring an HDR OLED display with a 110-degree field of view Because it provides fewer pixels in the surrounding areas (foveated rendering), the PS5 headset can also use flexible resolution scaling that will increase the performance of games released for the device.
Headset controllers are also discussed in the report, and they are said to feature "capacitive touch sensors for the thumb, index, and middle fingers." The sensors can tell both when the touch is touched and how far a user’s fingers are from it. Sony has previously confirmed that the controller will incorporate some of the key features found in the DualSense wireless controller, along with a focus on ergonomics.
Sony is also looking to release triple-A titles for the headset and wants the PS5 titles to feature hybrid VR Support, allowing gamers to choose between downloading the traditional version of a game or the VR version.
The company said back in February that it did not expect the headset to be released this year, but today's report states that the new VR offering will be unveiled in early 2022.
PS5 VR post headset has an HDR OLED display, 110 -degree FOV, will support AAA hybrid games – the report first appeared on VG247.
