Let Us Take A Closer Look!
As briefly mentioned above Sony have today brought a long-anticipated announcement for their VR hardware. Hideaki Nishino, Senior Vice President (Platform Experience), today posted the updated and final designs for the Playstation VR2 Headset and the Playstation VR2 Sense Controller. The design has been focused around the “orb”, symbolising the 360 degrees that players will feel in the PSVR world.
Having never owned the first PSVR, on looks the PSVR2 is for me a huge improvement. The shapes that it captures and along with the clean lines look stunning. The concertinerd eye piece looks like it will be quite comfortable for all face shapes and I love the orb design element that has been brought into the controllers. So far, this is an item that is on my wish list despite me already owning a Quest 2.
Yujin Morisawa, the Senior Art Director has received alot of positive feedback re the design work and stated;
“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. 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.”
