Sony Patent Reveals PlayStation VR 2 Headset

Share

One of the things that was seemingly lost in among the recent deluge of PS5 flavoured news was the tidbit that, at present, the PS5's backwards compatibility with PS4 games is now incomplete.

Sony usually the price under the wraps until the last moment and you can bet it won't be any different with their upcoming next-generation console PlayStation 5.

Following months of anticipation and suspicion after skipping E3, Sony confirms the PlayStation 5 console is set for a release in 2020 with loads of all-new tech-savvy features. According to a report from VGC, American directors visited the Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe office on Tuesday, where they announced the restructuring of several departments. The new PSVR 2 controller will even come with a camera, with it all detailed in a recently-published patent that was approved, and published on October 3, 2019.

Another advancement they're bringing for the controller is the adaptive triggers. WIRED magazine covered these updates and more in a story that posted this morning.

No word yet on things such as specs, performance, graphics, and specific games in development, although Sony has confirmed the console will be backward compatible with PS4 titles.

The PlayStation 5 announcement has mostly overshadowed the news of the redundancies. Game creators have started to receive early versions of the new controller, and we can't wait to see where their imagination goes with these new features at their disposal.

It's official - the PlayStation 5 is coming during the holidays next year, and it's called - surprise, surprise - the PlayStation 5, or PS5.

"Developers can program the resistance of the triggers so that you feel the tactile sensation of drawing a bow and arrow or accelerating an off-road vehicle through rocky terrain".

From the images LetsGoDigital published, the next-generation PSVR (if that's what this is) looks a lot like the current-gen PSVR.
