Next-Gen PSVR Specifications Leak - 4K VR for PlayStation 5

Sony's updating its PlayStationVR headset for PS5, aiming to deliver next-generation VR to the gaming masses, offering improvements in practically every area over today's PSVR offerings. 

UploadVR has managed to get some insider information on Sony's next-generation VR headset. The headset is due to release after 2021 and deliver 4K VR to PS5 users. 

4K VR? Yes, Sony's next-generation VR headset is due to offer gamers a screen resolution of 4000x2040, a per-eye resolution of 2000x2020. This change will drastically increase the resolution of Sony's VR gaming experiences, which, when combined with the power of PlayStation 5, should deliver sharper, more immersive VR games. 

Sony's next-generation VR headset is also due to be more comfortable than today's PSVR headset, offering support for features like lens separation adjustment and more. Additional features like support for gaze tracking, foveated rendering, and haptic feedback should also allow developers to deliver next-level VR immersion. 

It has already been confirmed that Sony's next-generation VR controllers will support features like finger position sensing, resistive triggers (like the PS5's DualSense controller), and a grip design that is more comfortable for VR gamers. These changes should allow VR developers to improve the interactivity of VR games/experiences, utilising the features of Sony's controllers to give players more physical feedback and control. 

Sony's next-generation VR headset should also be easier to set up and play. The headset reportedly uses internal cameras for positional tracking and controller tracking, eliminating the need for a PlayStation camera. This system should be more reliable and more accurate. Better still is the fact that this system should make PlayStation VR a more plug-and-play experience. Sony's new headset will also reportedly using the PlayStation 5's front-mounted USB Type-C header for connectivity, simplifying the PSVR setup process further.

Those controllers look pretty wild! But I hope the 4K resolution doesn't come at the expense of refresh rate, and it'll be used for dynamic scaling or something similar. 120Hz is the current industry standard for a good reason.Quote
