Sony has unveiled the design of its PlayStation VR2 headset

Sony has finally released the first images of the PlayStation VR 2 and revealed what the new generation of VR headsets should look like. We’ve already seen the controllers, but now we have the final design so we can see that the controllers on the outside will be white, modeled on the standard PlayStation 5 console model. It's the same with the headset itself.

Ergonomically, the PS VR2 will be of the same philosophy as the first part. Unlike most other VR headsets that are placed directly on the face, the PlayStation VR2 will continue to be the mainstay of the user’s forehead, so the glasses themselves don’t have to be pinned to the face. The device will still have a wheel on the back to adjust the tension, ie adjust to the size of the user's head. It will also be possible to adjust the distance of the lenses from the face/eyes again.

But there are also new things that the first PS VR didn't have. It has been confirmed that the distance between the lenses will be able to be adjusted so that the user has an optimal view inside the headset. This is available on several other VR headsets so the good thing is that Sony has also adopted this for the PS VR2.


Another thing, above the lenses themselves, ie just above the nose area, there is an "exhaust valve", ie a hole through which air exits. This was introduced to prevent fogging of the lens when using the device.
