Sony has so far largely owed official details on the planned PlayStation VR 2, but a new report now brings a potential release period and other technical details into play.
The renowned business magazine Bloomberg recently picked up Sony’s new VR headset PlayStation VR 2 in a report and revealed some new details. The magazine, which is usually well-informed, claims, among other things, that Sony will bring the good piece onto the market for the Christmas business in 2022 – in autumn of next year.
That in turn fits at least with the only official statement made so far in this regard, because Sony has so far announced an unspecified time window after 2021 as the release period for PSVR 2. Fall 2022 is therefore likely to be the biggest favorite when it comes to this topic anyway.
Also interesting: on the part Bloomberg it also says that the new VR headset will continue to rely on OLED panels, which are to be used in the actual headset. This is the same technology as in the first PSVR headset, but it should be further developed.
Sony is probably going against the trend in the VR area, because other manufacturers are switching to LCD technology more and more frequently. This is not as well positioned in terms of color fidelity, but LCD panels are cheaper to manufacture and can achieve an overall better image quality and higher refresh rates in the VR area – and the latter is extremely important in the VR area.
Earlier PSVR 2 rumors said that the new headset will get a 4K panel and improved rendering. In addition, inside-out tracking is to be supported, with which controllers can be tracked without external sensors.
