Sony reveals PlayStation VR2's headset and controller specifications

PlayStation's staring off 2022 with a bang by revealing the hardware specification of their PSVR2 headset, the company's next-generation virtual reality system for PlayStation 5. 

Sony's PlayStation VR2 system will include a new headset and new VR controllers, taking Sony's VR ecosystem to the next level with greater precision, higher quality screens, more user feedback, and new features like eye tracking. 

Improving upon the design of PSVR, Sony will be making their PlayStation VR2 headset an "inside-out" VR headset, using tracking sensors on the headset to deliver tacking and sensory data. This simplifies setup by removing the need for Sony's PlayStation camera and makes Sony's new PlayStation VR headset more similar to Oculus' (now Meta's) Rift S and Quest 2 VR headsets in design. 

With PSVR2, Sony will be using a 4K HDR OLED screen to deliver a resolution of 2,000 x 2,040 per eye at refresh rates of 90Hz or 120Hz. The headset will offer users a Field of View of 110 degrees, which is wider than PSVR's 96-degree FoV.
