A few weeks ago, the portal UploadVR he brought to light an exclusive about what the new PlayStation VR of the new generation consoles would be like. The arrival of the PS5, although slow, is on the right track. Even when delays are a constant since its release on the market, the brand has had good sales numbers, and they hope to at least compete with those achieved by PS4 in its first year of life on the market.
To achieve this goal, from Sony they have put the batteries and are fighting to get not only the best console possible, but also the importance that they are giving to the peripherals and the “added ones” is equal or greater if it fits. Therefore, if the UploadVR exclusive about the new PS5 virtual reality glasses is true, we would be facing an excellent quality leap.
Apparently, these new VR would go on the market with a resolution of 4000 x 2040 pixels (2000 x 2040 per eye), which would mean a 4K resolution. In addition, it would have dials to adjust the separation of the lenses and ability to use foveated rendering.
The new PlayStation VR would arrive from 2022
In addition, Sony has already confirmed that they were working on the development of a new generation wired VR headset for your PS5 console, and that it would arrive in the near future. If that wasn’t enough, also reveal what would the controls look like for this device, with analog sticks, detecting the position of your fingers and resistive triggers in the style of the PS5 DualSense.

The resolution of this new VR “helmet” should be a little lower than the market leader (HP Reverb G2), but better than the Oculus Quest 2. Other data we know is that the viewer will use USB type-C connection between the viewer and the console. On this occasion, users will have greater freedom of movement thanks to the built-in cameras to track the position of the new controllers.
Sony’s PSVR before this one sold more than five million of units until the end of 2019, but the intention is to exceed these numbers. In addition to against themselves, Sony must fight against Facebook and the Oculus Quest 2 wireless or Apple and HTC. We’ll see what happens as of 2022, the year in which the new PlayStation VR of the Japanese company should supposedly go on sale.
