A First Look At The PlayStation VR2 Design

The new headset will match the PS5 design perfectly. 

Sony has finally shared a first official look at the PlayStation VR2 headset, which instantly reminds you of the black and white PS5 console.

Hideaki Nishino, Sony senior vice president of platform experience, noted that the look of PSVR 2 was inspired by the curved, white and black look of the PS5. It was also said that the headset was designed to match the "orb" look of the Sense VR controllers Sony revealed earlier. 

Nishino added a key to the design is immersion, allowing users to "almost forget you are using a headset or controller." VR2 is said to retain a balanced weight and adjustable headband, plus there's a lens adjustment dial, a slimmer headset, and a reduced weight.

"When I started to work on the design for the PlayStation VR2 headset, one of the areas I wanted to focus on first was the idea of creating a vent in the headset to let air out, similar to the vents on the PS5 console that allows airflow. Our engineers came up with this idea as a good way to allow ventilation and avoid having the lens fog up while players are immersed in their VR games," said Yujin Morisawa, Senior Art Director, SIE. "I worked on many design concepts to achieve this, and in the final design, you can see there is a little space in between the top and front surface of the scope that contains the integrated ventilation. I am really proud of how this turned out and the positive feedback I have gotten so far. I hope our PlayStation fans will also agree, and I can’t wait for them to try it out."
