On Tuesday, Sony revealed the PSVR 2, the latest generation of their virtual reality device for the Playstation 5. The new VR system boasts improved images, improved tracking, additional sensory functions, and a single-cord setup via USB-C.

The superior graphics come from 4K HDR foveated rendering with a 110-degree field of view, as well as 4K HDR foveated rendering. The headset also has an OLED display with a resolution of 2000 x 2040 pixels and a refresh rate of 90 or 120Hz.

The new console also comes with a new set of controllers that are better than the original PSVR controllers. Haptic feedback and adjustable triggers are included in the PSVR 2 Sense controllers, giving gamers extra control choices in-game.

Inside-out tracking is a feature of the new headset, which means it monitors you and your controllers using built-in cameras in the headset, eliminating the need for an external camera. Aside from that, there’s eye-tracking, as well as 3D audio and headset feedback.

A single in-built motor in the headset provides headset feedback, which contributes to the player’s immersion. Players will be able to detect things like a character’s raised pulse, vehicle propulsion if they’re traveling fast, and the rush of items moving near to the in-game character’s head, for example.
