Sony Interactive Entertainment has released the first official images of the PlayStation VR2 headset and Sense controllers for the PlayStation 5. Like the PS5, the PSVR2 and its controllers will only be available in white. The headset was designed to be as ergonomic as possible and will feature an adjustment dial for the lens. Ergonomic features from the first PSVR headset like the adjustable scope will also be present on the PSVR2. A release window for the PSVR2 has not yet been revealed.
Here’s what Yujin Morisawa, designer of the PSVR2, had to say:
When I started to work on the design for the PlayStation VR2 headset, one of the areas I wanted to focus on first was the idea of creating a vent in the headset to let air out, similar to the vents on the PS5 console that allows airflow. Our engineers came up with this idea as a good way to allow ventilation and avoid having the lens fog up while players are immersed in their VR games. I worked on many design concepts to achieve this, and in the final design, you can see there is a little space in between the top and front surface of the scope that contains the integrated ventilation. I am really proud of how this turned out and the positive feedback I have gotten so far. I hope our PlayStation fans will also agree, and I can’t wait for them to try it out.
