PlayStation Announces Next Gen VR System for PS5

Given that they're talking up a new controller, what are the odds that it's possible to run this standalone for wireless games, and tethered for higher end stuff?  Basically, a Sony-branded Oculus Quest with Link capability? 

Since they mention that it will have a corded connection..... zero chance?


It’ll probably have inside out tracking to avoid having to use a camera, but I doubt there would be stuff inside to actually run games without a PS5.


I’m excited that they’re talking about it, and glad to hear that they are using what they’ve learned to improve the tracking and controllers. I loved my PSVR but the tracking and move controllers was the worst thing about it.

 I saw the mention of the corded connection, but that doesn't preclude a hybrid.  I don't think they'd do it, but it'd be an interesting path for a console maker to take (using a console to drive higher fidelity VR experiences, while still allowing mobile VR at lower quality). 


Glad to see that they're interested in more VR though!

Honestly, I’m mostly excited that they are officially acknowledging its existence instead of being somewhat coy about it. 

I’m not sure what my desire for this will be in the end. I loved my PSVR, but I don’t use it much anymore. There are a few reasons why, but I think the biggest one is that the novelty of VR has worn off a bit. Where once it felt like I was in another world, now it feels more like I’m just strapping a screen to my head. It’s still a very cool experience, but it’s almost just a normal one now. 

I still feel like I’ll want it (I still want a Quest), but I don’t know how much.
