The release of PS VR2 is still some time away but Playstation (PS) has decided to offer us a sneak peek of what the virtual reality headset can do and how it can enhance your VR gaming experience.
First of all, there are two modes for gaming and non-gaming content. Players may enjoy 360-degree virtual environments and VR game content in VR Mode. The content will be shown in a 4000×2040 HDR video format, 2000×2040 for each eye (that’s a lot of pixels) with a 90Hz/120Hz frame rate.
The PS5 system, user interface, and all non-VR games and media contents are viewable to players in Cinematic Mode on a virtual movie screen. The 1920×1080 HDR video format with 24/60Hz and 120Hz frame rates is used to display content in cinematic mode.
Secondly, you can see through the headset without having to take it off to look for something or to see if something is in front of you. This option is only for you to see your surroundings, not for recording.
Thirdly, you can broadcast yourself playing games by connecting PS5 HD camera to the console. So you can show yourself and the movement you make while gaming to the world, if that is what you want.
Last but not least, you can scan your room using the embedded camera on the headset and customise your play area.
You will get a warning that you are very close to the play area border while you are playing if you go too close to the boundary you have put up. While PS VR2 is connected, you may always change your settings. If you stay in the same play area after setting it up, the settings will be retained.
