PSVR 2: Everything We Know So Far About New PSVR for PS5

Sony has announced that a next generation PSVR headset for PS5 is in development. Generally referred to as PSVR 2 (though that’s not the official name), the company has said this new device will be a big improvement, providing the “ultimate entertainment experience with dramatic leaps in performance and interactivity”. There’s no release date attached to the new PSVR just yet.

Will the New PSVR 2 for PS5 Use New Controllers?

Yes! A major feature of PSVR 2 is its brand new VR controllers. These new controllers, built especially for virtual reality games, will feature haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, just like PS5’s DualSense controller. They also feature an analog stick for each hand, finger touch detection technology, and far improved motion tracking that doesn’t rely on a separate camera.

Will the New PSVR 2 for PS5 Be Wireless Like Oculus Quest?

Sony has stated that the new PSVR headset won’t be completely wireless, but it will have far fewer cables than the current device. PSVR 2 will feature one single wire, connecting the headset to your PS5 console, and that’s it — no breakout box, no external cameras. It sounds like setting it up will be much more straightforward.
