When you wear a VR headset, you cannot see the real world at the cost of being able to see the virtual world.
Some people may dive into the virtual world for this purpose, but as human beings, we still have trouble seeing the real world.
With the new "see-through view" feature, you can see your surroundings even when wearing the headset!
This is handy if you drop the controller or just want a quick drink!
This function can be easily activated by pressing the function button or from the control center.

Walk around the room! Customize your play area

While the PS VR required players to stay within the range of the PS Camera, the PS VR2 uses inside-out tracking, allowing players to customize the PS VR2 play area using the headset camera and the PS VR2 Sense controller. The "PS VR2" uses inside-out tracking and allows you to customize the PS VR2 play area using the headset camera and the PS VR2 Sense controller!
Of course, once you set the play area, it is saved, so you don't have to re-set it in the same place!
During gameplay, you'll be alerted when approaching the boundaries of your set play area, so you can walk around the room without worry!

For distributors? Record yourself playing!

By connecting the separately sold HD camera for PS5 to the PS5 console, you can record and stream yourself while wearing the "PS VR2" headset!
The great thing about VR games is that you can enjoy the reactions of the players not only while playing, but also from the outside!
If you are a distributor, why not give it a try?

Even your regular games are in VR! Cinematic Mode

PS VR2" supports 4K resolution ( 4000x2040 ) while "PS VR" supports "1920x1080".
You can enjoy VR contents in 360 degrees with ultra-high image quality.

In addition, using the cinematic mode, you can play " non-VR " games and watch media content on a huge screen in a virtual space!
As the word "cinematic" suggests, the image you get is something like a movie theater.
It is often difficult to concentrate when there are things on the desk that distract you, isn't it?
If you can enjoy a virtual large screen while eliminating such hassles, it is a feature I would like to try!
In cinematic mode, you can enjoy content at 1920x1080, 24/60Hz or 120Hz.

That's all we have to say about the new features that have been unveiled this time around, but we can't wait to see what the price and release date will be!
Let's look forward to more news on the PS VR2!
