Sony’s PS5 will include a next-generation VR headset which would have 4K resolution, haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, eye-tracking, and a vibration motor in the headset. These details are sent from Sony to its partners, which made it easy for the leaks, but the company has not confirmed anything.
As per UploadVR, the headset would have a resolution of 4000 x 2040, giving each eye 2000 x 2040 pixels. The original PlayStation VR gave a resolution of 960 x 1080 per eye. This indicates that the new PlayStation VR would be offering twice the resolution as the original one. The Oculus Quest 2 gives 1832 x 1920 pixels per eye, which is less than the new Sony headset.
Sony had previously cleared that the new PlayStation headset will be wired, using a single USB-C cable to connect to the PS5 system. Sources suggest that the new headset will track the user’s eyes for foveated rendering which greatly reduces the image quality in the peripheral vision and increases the quality, where you are looking at.
UploadVR also suggests that the next-generation headset would have inside-out tracking, which requires a fixed camera that tracks your head and hands when you hold a pair of glowing sticks in a fairly small area between you and the console.
It will be interesting to see that the new Sony PlayStation VR would have all these rumored features, making which would make it a good PlayStation.
