After officially announcing PSVR 2, finally there are also the first images on the design of the new PlayStation headset
We are more than a month after the official announcement of PlayStation VR2, the new virtual reality headset belonging to Sony's PlayStastion brand. What happened in January was an announcement that was certainly expected by users, but which nevertheless found itself welcomed with great trepidation from the audience. Together with it, moreover, one of the first exclusive PlayStation VR2 titles was also presented, or Horizon Call of The Mountain, the VR project set in the world created by Guerrilla Games. At the time of its announcement no early images had been provided about the design that would have constituted PSVR 2, but at least some technical specifications of the viewer were revealed, in addition to having officially opened the site. However, in the last few hours Sony has finally wanted to turn the spotlight on this new device, officially presenting its aesthetics on the PlayStation Blog. In addition to this, the company has also unveiled some still unknown innovations of the Sony viewer, which we will go into in depth in the following lines.
The design of PSVR 2, the new PlayStation headset
From the diffused images it can be seen how the viewer takes up the aesthetics that, since the beginning of the next-gen era at Sony, has also characterized its own DualSense console and controller, presenting the predominantly white color and some black details. Going to study it slightly spherical shape, it is easy to see the inspiration given by the 360 ° view, offered by virtual reality technology. Reading the post, it is highlighted how during the development it has lent itself particular attention to ergonomics of the headset itself, with the ultimate aim of making those who use the PlayStation VR2 almost forget that they have worn it. And it seems that this has been made possible thanks to the balance of the weight of the viewer, combined with the adjustable headband that has been included in its structure.
