Sony has revealed the PlayStation VR2 UX features. This includes See-Through View, Custom Play Area, an option to broadcast yourself and two visual modes viz. VR and Cinematic. This announcement comes a month or so after the company revealed the roster of games supported by it. We also have a good idea about the design of PS VR2. The only thing that most PlayStation fans must be wishing to know would be the price. Unfortunately, that’s not here yet. In any case, let’s uncover the details that were disclosed the other day.
Sony PlayStation VR2: See-Through View
With the help of the embedded cameras, you can see the PS VR2 Sense controllers without taking the headset off. To control this, you just have to click the function button on the headset, or tap on the Card in the Control Center.
Another use case of this Control Center Card is that it brings up other PS VR2 settings like the option to adjust the play area.
Note that there’s no recording option here.
Sony PlayStation VR2: Broadcast Yourself While Playing
You get to broadcast your surroundings and your own movements while playing with the PS VR2. In order to make this happen, you have to plug in a PS5 HD Camera to the console.
Sony PlayStation VR2: Customized Play Area
As mentioned already, you get to customize the play area using the embedded camera and the PS VR2 controller. With the cameras, you scan the room and with the controller, you expand and push the perimeter if needed be. So, while playing if you are about to cross the boundaries, you will be alerted. Don’t worry as you can expand and customize the border in the settings.
