PSVR2 PlayStation VR Sony 1

If your only experience with virtual reality is the original PSVR headset, then Sony’s successor is going to be a huge step forward. While much of the discussion has centred on visuals and performance improvements, the new PSVR2 Sense Controllers are going to make a massive difference from a tactile perspective. Honestly, those PS Move controllers simply don’t cut it anymore.

One of the features that Sony’s crammed into the new handsets is finger tracking, and you can see it in action courtesy of the video embedded above. As the player gestures with his hands in real-life, you can see his movements replicated in-game. This is going to make a profound difference when it comes to actually picking up items and holding them.

Other mind-blowing features that PSVR2 has include eye-tracking, so in Firewall Ultra, for example, you’ll be able to select weapons by looking around. And, perhaps even more fascinatingly, in The Dark Pictures: Switchback VR, the scene will actually change each time you blink! Terrifying stuff, but another demonstration of just how advanced this new headset is shaping up to be.
