Sony recently gave us an early look at some of PlayStation VR2’s new user experience features, including its see-through view and broadcasting option, which enables players to view their surroundings while wearing the headset. To activate said feature, users can select the function button on the headset, or use the Card in the Control Center, to seamlessly toggle between viewing their surroundings or what’s currently on the headset.
The Card in the Control center has other functions as well, allowing access to other settings, like adjusting the size of the active play area, which can be customized using the VR2’s Sense controllers and the embedded cameras.
Additionally, the VR2’s has a new broadcast feature which lets users record themselves while playing by connecting a PlayStation 5 HD Camera to the console.
“In VR Mode, players can enjoy VR game content in a 360 view in a virtual environment,” wrote Sony in a blog post unveiling these new features. “Content will be displayed in 4000 x 2040 HDR video format (2000 x 2040 per eye) with 90Hz/120Hz frame rate. In Cinematic Mode, players can view the PS5 system and UI and all non-VR game and media content on a virtual cinema screen. Content in Cinematic Mode will be displayed in 1920×1080 HDR video format with 24/60Hz and also 120Hz frame rate.”
Sony said back in May, that it plans to have more than 20 games ready for the launch of the PlayStation VR2, which has no official release date at the moment, although it’s projected to be in late-2023.
