    PS5 PSVR Reportedly Features 4K and Eye-Tracking

    While the PS5 PSVR hasn’t received the typical “big reveal” treatment, it seems more information about its specs is trickling out ahead of its inevitable release.According to UploadVR, sources say Sony has shared details for its refresh of PlayStation VR. This includes a 4K resolution, a lens separation adjustment dial, eye-tracking, and a motor in the headset to give haptic feedback.The resolution of the PS5 PSVR headset will be 4000×2080 pixels, which works out to being 2000×2040 per eye. This amounts to around 8.3 million total pixels which is slightly more than a typical 4K display outputs. The device will also use USB Type-C to connect the headset to the console. Unlike its predecessor, the new headset will use onboard cameras to track the controllers which will seemingly simplify setup for the PSVR.RELATED: Sony Warns PlayStation 5 Supply Could Be Scarce Until 2022The article also speculates that the new PSVR headset’s alleged eye-tracking capabilities may be a game-changer for virtual reality. UploadVR speculates that the inclusion of foveated rendering, which is a rendering technique specific to eye-tracking equipment that reduces the quality of images in the peripherals, will improve the perceived sharpness of an image by supersampling the focus area. They also speculate that eye-tracking can greatly affect the overall VR experience such as improved throwing mechanics and more life-like interactions between people within an online space.Back in March, Sony revealed the new controllers for the PS5 PSVR. Rather than using PlayStation Move controllers, the newly designed, orb-like VR controllers look more akin to the current Oculus controllers. The controllers will feature adaptive triggers, haptic feedback, finger touch detection, tracking, and the typical action buttons and analog sticks. To put it simply, it includes all the key features of the PS5’s DualSense controller but with a more ergonomic design for virtual reality.There is no current release date for the PS5 PSVR. However, Sony has stated it will not be launching in 2021.

    Sony Warns PlayStation 5 Supply COULD POSSIBLY BE Scarce Until 2022

    As relayed by Bloomberg, Sony has warned investors that the PlayStation 5 may be hard to come by for consumers until at least 2022.The system, which first debuted on November 12, 2020, has been extremely limited in supply for its entire six months on store shelves. Players hoping to secure the system to play Returnal, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, or any number of other Sony first-party experiences have had to wait on online queues in order to get a chance at purchasing the hardware.RELATED: Lost Judgment Trailer Released, Yakuza Will Be an RPG Going ForwardDespite the limited availability, the system has sold 7.8 million units through March 31, and Sony CFO Hiroki Totoki stated that this high demand is part of the reason for the lack of systems.“I don’t think demand is calming down this year,” Totoki said. “Even if we secure a lot more devices and produce many more units of the PlayStation 5 next year, our supply wouldn’t be able to catch up with demand.”He also compared the console to the PlayStation 4’s success, saying that the proven track record of Sony’s gaming efforts means that the demand isn’t going away anytime soon. Elsewhere in his statement, Totoki also listed the stay-at-home demands of consumers amidst the pandemic as a cause of this unusually long drought of PlayStations.RELATED: Returnal’s Latest Patch Fixes Trophies, Rebalances BiomesReturnal is one of the first games from Sony to run exclusively on PlayStation 5, with many of their launch titles coming out simultaneously on PlayStation 4. New games that don’t run on old hardware could make the PS5 even more desirable for players, which will squeeze the supply line even more as the months roll on.
