“We’re taking what we’ve learned since launching PS VR on PS4 to develop a next-gen VR system that enhances everything from resolution and field of view to tracking and input,” said Hideaki Nishino, Sony Interactive Entertainment’s platform planning SVP. Sony announced in February that it was working on a “next-generation VR system” for PS5 which is scheduled to launch after 2021. “It will connect to PS5 with a single cord to simplify setup and improve ease-of-use, while enabling a high-fidelity visual experience.”
The headset, which is said to use on board cameras to track the position of Sony’s new VR controllers, will connect to PS5 using a USB Type-C connection. Notice: To display this embed please allow the use of Functional Cookies in Cookie Preferences.
“Taken altogether, the new features define a truly next-generation virtual reality experience planned by Sony for PlayStation 5 owners,” UploadVR reports. It will also include gaze tracking capable of foveated rendering (which is discussed in the timestamped video below), a lens separation adjustment dial, and a vibration motor allowing developers to provide direct haptic feedback, Sony has reportedly informed partners.
“There’s still a lot of development underway for our new VR system, so it won’t be launching in 2021. But we wanted to provide this early update to our fans, as the development community has started to work on creating new worlds for you to explore in virtual reality.” Nishino said the new VR controller will incorporate some of the key features found in the PS5’s DualSense controller, along with a focus on great “ergonomics”.
