Sony unveiled the PSVR 2 a few days ago and we’re excited.
One of the most important things about any VR headset is the display and Sony has come with a 4K OLED screen, 2000×2040 pixels-per-eye, HDR support, 90Hz / 120Hz refresh rate, 110-degree field of view, eye tracking, and four inside-out cameras (for environmental monitoring).
Sony will bundle two updated Sense controllers that offer even more precision and help immerse yourself in games.
The price of the PSVR 2 is unknown, but you have to factor in when buying a PS5 (and games) as the PSVR 2 only works over a wired connection, unlike Quest 2.

Oculus Quest 2 specifications
The Oculus Quest 2 was released some time ago and so the specs are generally inferior to Sony’s PSVR 2, which has not yet been released or even has a release date.
Still, the Quest 2 has a lot going for it, especially if you want to use the headset wirelessly (i.e. away from a PC). This is a killer feature and makes VR seem a lot more real instead of being tied to a legacy device.
Oculus Quest 2 contains 1832 × 1920 pixels per eye via an LCD display without HDR, 72 Hz / 90 Hz / 120 Hz refresh rate, a 90-degree field of view, four inside-out cameras, no eye tracking, hand tracking , a microphone and bundle Oculus Touch controller.
The specs are by no means shoddy and deliver crisp games that feel immersive. Plus, you can actually buy Oculus Quest 2 now.

In terms of raw data, the PSVR 2 is better in most objective ways: higher resolution, better field of view, OLED and so on. But you can’t really buy the PSVR 2 right now, which means the Oculus Quest 2 (or the expiring PSVR) is the obvious choice for anyone looking to jump into VR gaming right away or not owning a PS5 console.
The range of games also differs and it will be interesting to see which exclusive Sony managers will set up for PSVR 2 buyers in the future.
