The helmet has not yet been unveiled. We do not know the format or the look it will adopt. And if Bloomberg’s information is to be believed, then we’re nowhere near learning more about it. Our colleagues believe that the PlayStation VR 2 will not be marketed before next year, in 2022. Worse still, the launch will rather be planned at the end of the year and the headset should therefore not arrive before a year and a half.
Bloomberg nevertheless specifies that this new headset will be entitled to OLED screens manufactured by Samsung Display, but also to a technology capable of accurately detecting the movements of the eyes of its wearer. The helmet will therefore know in which direction our gaze will be directed, which will at the same time allow it to favor the rendering of certain areas.
