Today there was news about the PS VR2 virtual reality headset from Sony Playstation, with some new features such as exterior vision and cinematic mode.
With PS VR2, you can see your surroundings while wearing the headset thanks to the new outside view feature. This is useful when you want to easily check where the PS VR2 Sense controllers are in your room without having to take off your headset. Thanks to PS VR2’s built-in front-facing cameras, users can press the function button on the headset or use the card in the control center to toggle between viewing their environment or the content in PS VR2. The card in Control Center also provides quick access to other PS VR2 settings, such as play area settings.
The outside view is for viewing only, so there is no recording option.
Broadcast while you play
A new streaming feature for PS VR2 will allow you to record yourself while you play, using a PS5 HD camera connected to the console. It’s a great way to show off your moves and reactions during a boss battle and share your reactions with other players in real time.
custom play area
The PS VR2 play area can be customized using the PS VR2 Sense controls and built-in cameras. Cameras let you scan the room, while PS VR2 Sense controls let you further expand and customize the play area to suit your style of play and the environment in the room.
If you get close to the set limit while playing, you will receive a warning that you are getting close to the edge of the playing area. You can change the settings at any time while PS VR2 is connected. Once you set the play area, your settings will be saved unless you move to a different play area.
VR Mode and Cinematic Mode
In VR mode, players can enjoy VR game content in a 360° view in a virtual environment. Content will be displayed in 4000 x 2040 (2000 x 2040 per eye) HDR video format with 90Hz/120Hz frame rate.
In Cinematic Mode, gamers can view the PS5 system, user interface, and all non-VR games and media on a virtual theater screen. Content in cinematic mode will be displayed in 1920 x 1080 HDR video format at 24/60Hz and also at 120Hz frame rate.
