PS5 VR could happen as ‘PSVR 2’ patent emerges



Just hours after Sony announced the final name and release window for the PlayStation 5, LetsGoDigital unearthed a patent filing for what might be the next PlayStation VR headset. While there is plenty of excitement for Sony's next-gen console right now, there are also worries that it won't be particularly affordable.

VGC reports that the move may in part be due to the shift in influence to Sony Interactive Entertainment's North American division.

The folks at LetsGoDigital don't seem to sleep, posting up details on the new PSVR 2 headset reporting that it will come with built-in cameras and even a transparent mode, something that is very, very interesting.

On top of that, the patent also details how the device features three cameras, two on the front of the headset and one on the back, that can be used to show you your surroundings while wearing the headset or display "stereoscopic images", which would would be a 3D image.

However, those at PlayStation are so talented that we see them getting back in the industry soon, and that could even happen at Xbox, the biggest competitor in the gaming business for Sony. This too would be used for tracking the position of the device, although innovative developers could potentially use it for something cool as well. VRFocus has seen recent patents appear for a virtual reality (VR) floor mat by Microsoft and a new headset design for Nintendo Switch. Previously each was able to run relatively independently, green-lighting games such as Driveclub that were then more heavily focussed and marketed to a European audience, but in recent times SIEE has had too follow SIEA's lead much more closely and they are apparently kept out of the loop over what will feature in the new State of Play streams and unaware that the USA team were giving exclusive details over the PlayStation 5 to Wired this week.
