New PlayStation VR Trailer Reveals Some Technical Details

By   /   12 months ago

With the slow rise of Virtual Reality people are waiting to see what the headsets can do for the real players. Sony have released a trailer revealing some of the technical details about the headset, and what it will bring to the gaming experience.

As you can see from the trailer they don’t actually reveal any game footage, but they focus on how good the PlayStation VR headset looks, though they do hide the cable that will be connected to it. They did reveal these facts though:


  • 5.7″ OLED display
  • 1920xRBGx1080 resolution (960xRBGx1080 per eye)
  • 120Hz refresh rate
  • Super low latency (under 18ms)
  • Approximately 100-degree field of view
  • Accelerometer and gyroscope
  • Positional tracking with 9 LEDs (360-degree head tracking)
  • 3D audio (with stereo mini jack and mic input)
  • HDMI and USB interface

PlayStation VR is Social

  • Gameplay is output to both the VR headset and TV

What will please PlayStation 4 players who are looking forward to moving to Virtual Reality is that they once again confirmed that the launch window for PlayStation VR will be the first half of 2016. While that may be vague, at least we know that it is coming soon.

What wasn’t revealed was the price, though there are plenty of rumours as to how much it will be. This is probably the one stumbling block for the headset when it comes to owners of the PlayStation 4 console. If they’ve paid so much already how much more will they be willing to spend?

It is good to see that Sony are working hard to make VR a success, even if it is going to be a hard sell. Can the PlayStation VR really work in a home environment?
