PSVR 2 Rumored To Have Larger Decision Than Oculus Quest 2
According to a new report, PlayStation VR 2 will support 2000 × 2040 resolution per eye, which is higher than that of Oculus Quest 2.
According to reports, the PlayStation VR 2 supports a resolution of 2000 × 2040 per eye, which is higher than that of the Oculus Quest 2. Sony announced official details on its next-generation PlayStation VR platform in February of this year, with improvements in vision, input, resolution and tracking.
A little less than a month after this initial information hit the Internet, the hardware maker revealed a look at the controllers for its next-generation VR device. In particular, Sony has finally ditched the Move controllers, favoring a VR controller design that takes on some of the best features from DualSense. The left and right controllers feature a unique spherical design and emphasize comfort for a variety of hand sizes. They also have adaptive trigger buttons and haptic feedback. Apparently, Sony’s next generation VR controllers are the only way the company will try to outperform the competition.

In an interview with “reliable sources”, UploadVR is said to have learned that PSVR 2 will achieve a resolution of 4000 × 2040 pixels at 2000 × 2040 per eye. If so, it means that Sony is targeting VR in 4K. In comparison, the Oculus Quest 2 cannot achieve that much with its pixel count of 1832 × 1920 per eye. The report also claims that the new device will include a lens separation dial and gaze tracking with foveated rendering – a method that reduces render quality beyond the player’s peripheral and allows for higher image quality in the center of view. UploadVR’s sources also announced that a motor in the headset allows game developers to provide direct haptic feedback.
This is undoubtedly a huge boost compared to the specs of the original PlayStation VR. The 2016 device came with a single screen aimed at 1080 x 960 pixels per eye. And the foveated rendering in particular should help improve the visual quality and give some edge to the next PSVR headset. There is one key concern, however – pricing.
While next-gen technology is sure to make the PSVR 2 feel like a cut above the other, Sony may find it hard to compete with these Oculus Quest 2 in the cost department. Oculus launched the device last fall with a base model priced at $ 299 and a high-end version priced at $ 399. Will Sony push for a higher price or is the manufacturer planning to sell another PlayStation device at a loss so soon after the PS5 launch? We have to wait and see.
