VR enhances PlayStation gaming experience

With virtual reality becoming bigger and bigger every week and having a bigger demand now days, PlayStation have announced its own VR. Meet PlayStation VR, the upcoming virtual reality platform designed to deliver exciting and innovative gaming experiences to PlayStation.

The VR combines a landscape-scanning, full-HD LCD 1080p display and a uniquely developed optical unit with an approximate 100º field of view to create a vast 3D space in front of the users eyes. The VR allows users to experience the future of gaming through virtual reality with just the visor, a PlayStation4 and the PlayStationCamera.

Utilising technology developed for the platform, PlayStation VR delivers a deeply immersive audio experience, putting users in the middle of the world with sound that comes from any direction in a 360º sphere. PlayStation VR features a visor-style design, engineered to be balanced and comfortable for extended use. Its dual-banded form also adjusts to fit comfortably around various head sizes and over glasses.

The visor’s high-sensitivity accelerometer and gyroscope run at a frequency of 1000Hz, allowing PlayStation VR to detect head’s movement with almost no latency. When used with a PlayStation Camera, the users head’s movement and the movement of controller can be tracked and reflected in the game’s images in real time.

Multiple PlayStation VR units connected to PS4 systems can be networked to play in the same virtual world. Additionally, PlayStation VR can also display what the user is looking at as a 2D image on a TV screen, allowing others to participate.
