PS VR2 Details New Features; See-Through Option, Cinematic Mode & More

Sony has shared new details regarding the upcoming PS VR2, revealing the see-through feature, providing obvious benefits. Users will be able to switch between game view and real-life view by pressing a specific button on the headset or via the Control Center Card. However, no recording functionality will be available while using the see-through feature.

If one has a PS5 HD camera, they can use it to record themselves while using the PS VR2. Moreover, the play area can be configured so users can set up space boundaries. A warning will set off if a PS VR2 user approaches their boundary’s end.

VR and Cinematic modes were also detailed, quoted below:

In VR Mode, players can enjoy VR game content in a 360 view in a virtual environment. Content will be displayed in 4000 x 2040 HDR video format (2000 x 2040 per eye) with 90Hz/120Hz frame rate.

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