Community Download is a weekly discussion-focused articles series published (usually) every Monday in which we pose a single, core question to you all, our readers, in the spirit of fostering discussion and debate. For today’s Community Download, we’re looking to the future to ask you all what you want out of a PSVR 2?
The hype train for PS5 is making its final boarding calls as it prepares to leave the station. The PS5 is slated for Holiday 2020 and the final big hitting PS4 games (like The Last of Us 2 and Ghosts of Tsushima) are nearing release in the next few months. And with the PS5, also comes the promise of the PSVR’s successor as well.
We still don’t know many concrete details about the PSVR 2 just yet, let alone what it’s even going to be called or what the actual PS5 looks like, but there are plenty of informed guesses we can make based off of speculation. It doesn’t sound like the PSVR 2 will be ready for showtime by the time the PS5 launches, but it’s still looking promising. The technology itself is likely going to be a major step up over the now three-year-old headset which was already based off of a generation-old tracking system. Patents suggest the next headset could use a mixture of tracking features and potentially even be wireless. A wider FOV, higher resolution, and potentially even eye tracking are all on the table.
Thankfully it looks like the PS Move Controllers will get redesigned as well for PSVR 2.
With so much potential on the horizon — what matters most to you? What do you want to see out of the PSVR 2 when the time finally comes?
