PSVR 2 has revealed one of its great strengths that will place it above its competitors in terms of graphics. The device will offer twice the pixel density of the Oculus Quest 2.
PlayStation VR 2 has been officially confirmed by Sony and the first details about the virtual reality generation leap for the company have already been read while waiting for a launch date.
PSVR 2 is expected to arrive in 2022but until the moment it is announced we still know some of the most important details of the device. This is going to present a few improvements over the PS4 model.
The most recent that has been revealed has to do with the screen. As reported Display Supply Chain Consultants, PSVR 2’s screen will have a density of over 800 pixels per inch per eye.
This basically translates into a great improvement in the graphic section of the device. To put this “upgrade” in context, PSVR offered 200 PPI per eye and now PSVR 2 will feature twice as much as the leading virtual reality device, Oculus Quest 2.
To achieve this improvement, Sony has used a thinner thin metal skin and the use of direct view OLED screens with RGB stripesallowing you to expand the capabilities of your new VR system.
Therefore, PS VR2 has a resolution of 2000 x 2040 per eye vs. 1832 x 1920 per Oculus Quest 2 eye. What applications will this have? A higher graphical fidelity that we hope to see in the new projects that are announced as the year progresses.
