There’s been no shortage of chatter about the price of PSVR2, but while the timing of the headset’s release may be unfortunate with the current financial crisis, there’s no question you’re getting a lot of bang for your buck. The next-gen device is lightyears ahead of its predecessor, and is pound-for-pound the best HMD on the market. And now devs are beginning to open up about just how good it is.
“It’s the pinnacle of VR,” one dev working on first-person shooter Pavlov VR explained, adding that his team has used the PSVR2 Sense Controllers’ adaptive triggers to create unique textures for each weapon. He continued: “It’s probably [performing] 10 per cent above PCVR because it’s a console and rendering is more efficient.” Asked to clarify what benchmark he was comparing to, he pointed to NVidia’s flagship ~$1,200 RTX 3090 Ti.
