Well it seems that Sony has not given up on the PlayStation VR. Today it has been confirmed that they’ll be making a brand new PlayStation VR for the PS5!
Here’s what was said on PlayStation.Blog:
Today I’m pleased to share that our next-generation VR system will be coming to PlayStation 5, enabling the ultimate entertainment experience with dramatic leaps in performance and interactivity. Players will feel an even greater sense of presence and become even more immersed in their game worlds once they put on the new headset.
We’re continuing to innovate with our new VR system so that our fans can continue to enjoy the unique experiences that are synonymous with PlayStation. We’re taking what we’ve learned since launching PS VR on PS4 to develop a next-gen VR system that enhances everything from resolution and field of view to tracking and input. It will connect to PS5 with a single cord to simplify setup and improve ease-of-use, while enabling a high-fidelity visual experience.
One of the innovations we’re excited about is our new VR controller, which will incorporate some of the key features found in the DualSense wireless controller, along with a focus on great ergonomics. That’s just one of the examples of future-proof technology we’re developing to match our vision for a whole new generation of VR games and experiences.
Hopefully, the new PlayStation VR gets the push it deserves. In my opinion, Sony dropped the ball with the original VR and felt more like a quick money scheme to catch up to already popular VR sets. If Sony is series about the new VR headset then I’m sure they’re going to kill it this time. Also, seeing that Sony is being nice when it comes to porting exclusive games on PC, I won’t be surprised that their library for the headset will be better.
