PSVR 2 design

PlayStation_VR2_design

Sony revealed the PlayStation VR2 headset design and a final design image for the PlayStation VR2 Sense controller on 22nd February, 2022.

Senior Vice President of Platform Experience, Hideaki Nishino said the ‘circular orb shape represents the 360-degree view that players feel when they enter the virtual reality world’. Nishino said the design was also inspired by the PS5 family of products, including its black and white aesthetic and rounded edges of the DualSense Wireless controller and the Pulse 3D Wireless headset.

While its also not too dissimilar to its predecessor’s design, Sony has confirmed a new vent design promises better airflow and avoids having the lens fog up during game sessions.

The PS VR2 also offers improved comfort thanks to a slimmer, lighter design and an adjustable lens so you can optimize your view.
