As the months go by, more and more information about the new generation of hardware comes in the hands of the big manufacturers in the industry. One of these companies is Sony, in addition to working in your future PS5, also develops (and patents) new technology related to virtual reality face a future model of his helmet PlayStation VR.
While recent years have looked at Sony patents related to new motion controls or wireless headphones by VR, retransmission of sporting events in VR or even gloves that "transmit" the contact on virtual realityIt seems like new model of PSVR will not reach stores with the same date as PS5, and we have to wait for something more to see one "PSVR 2"or that's what Dominic Mallinson, Vice President of R&D Sony and head of research and development for PlayStation.
The 20 best PSVR games
In an interview for CNET, head of the Research and Development Division of PlayStation have talked about the future for virtual reality, where he commented that it is not likely that a new model of PSVR simultaneously with the launch of PS5: "There is no reason why we have to match it with a new console. From the consumer's point of view, the fact of being bombarded by many new things, "oh, you have to buy it, you have to buy it", it's a message we don't want to give".
"In one way, it is good to have some breathing space between these things"Mallinson said," So it seems clear that Sony is not planning to start one new model of PSVR at the same time as your future PS5, but choose to accommodate their launches to avoid overwhelming users. Not in vain, the current model for PSVR will be compatible with PS5 when it reaches stores that are confirmed by itself Sony A month ago, it seems as if they are not in a hurry to replace a product that was the best-selling VR helmet in 2018, and already exceeding 4.2 million units sold.
