The final design for Sony’s upcoming PSVR 2 headset and Sense controllers, which look similar to the PS5’s design aesthetic, has been revealed. The virtual reality hardware, like the console, has a white finish, soft curves, and a matching “orb” motif. The circular orb shape, according to Sony, represents the 360-degree view that players get when they enter the world of virtual reality, and it fits in with the PS5 family of products’ design aesthetic. # Sony finally reveals the PlayStation VR2’s design

Other highlights of the headset include a lens adjustment dial that allows users to adjust the distance between their eyes and the lenses, a slight weight reduction compared to the previous PSVR model, and a new vent design.
In a PS Blog post, SIE senior art director Yujin Morisawa explained, “When I first started working on the design for the PlayStation VR2 headset, one of the areas I wanted to focus on first was the idea of creating a vent in the headset to let air out, similar to the vents on the PS5 console that allow airflow.”
“Our engineers came up with this idea as a way to allow ventilation while players are immersed in their VR games and avoid the lens fogging up. To achieve this, I worked on a number of design concepts, and as you can see in the final design, there is a small space between the top and front surfaces of the scope that houses the integrated ventilation. I’m really pleased with how it turned out and the positive feedback I’ve received thus far. I’m hoping our PlayStation fans will agree, and I can’t wait to see what they think.”
If you like the texture on the PS5 and DualSense controllers, you’ll be happy to know that the PSVR 2 headset now has thousands of tiny PlayStation symbols on the front and back bands to make it more comfortable.
