Sony Shared PlayStation VR2's See-Through View & Other Features

The headset will also have a broadcasting option, customized play area, Cinematic Mode, and more.

Sony revealed some features of its upcoming PlayStation VR2, including the new see-through view, broadcasting option, customized play area, and VR and Cinematic Modes.

The see-through view allows you to see your surroundings while wearing the headset, which is useful when you want to, for example, check where the PS VR2 Sense controllers are without taking the headset off. You can press the function button on the headset or use the Card in the Control Center to switch between the views. The function doesn't support recording.

What does support it is the new broadcasting feature, which allows you to film yourself while playing by connecting a PS5 HD Camera to the console.

Another handy feature is the customizable play area. Using the PS VR2 Sense controllers and the embedded cameras, you can scan the room and expand and further change the play area. If you get close to the boundary while playing, you will receive a warning.

One more interesting change is the VR and Cinematic modes. In the first, you can experience VR game content in a 360 view in a virtual environment. Content will be displayed in 4000 x 2040 HDR video format with a 90Hz/120Hz frame rate.

In Cinematic Mode, you can view all non-VR game and media content, including the PS5 system and UI, on a virtual cinema screen. Content in Cinematic Mode will be displayed in 1920×1080 HDR video format with 24/60Hz and 120Hz frame rates.

The features will become available for PS VR2 game developers soon as part of the ongoing development. Sony also promised to share more information soon, including the launch date and games coming to the platform. You can read the blog post here.
