Operate a company Sony On developing the next generation VR glasses for the PlayStation 5 (5 PS5), which includes the new VR glasses with improved field of view and resolution and even a single wire to make it easier to use.
Although Sony won’t launch this year, the company is announcing early plans to make it available via PS5 at some point in the future.
Sony will begin releasing development kits for the next-generation VR glasses soon, but the company hasn’t clarified the full specifications or release dates yet.
Says Hideaki Nishino, Chairman of the platform Play Station And planning at Sony: We’re taking what we’ve learned since the launch of PS VR via PS4 to develop a next-generation VR system that boosts everything from resolution and field of view to tracking and input.
He added: The next-generation VR headset connects to the PS5 platform with a single wire to simplify setup and improve ease of use, while enabling a high-definition visual experience.

Sony is also working on a new VR controller, which uses some of the features found on the DualSense PS5 controller.
“There’s still a lot of development underway for our new virtual reality system, so it won’t launch in 2021,” says Nishino.
“We wanted to introduce this early update to our fans, as the development community started working on creating new worlds for you to explore in virtual reality,” he added.
The VR controller is also focused on improving ergonomics, and this new hardware device is clearly designed to improve some of the limitations of the original PlayStation VR.
“Given that this was our first entry into the field of virtual reality, it gives us an opportunity to apply the lessons learned,” says PlayStation President Jim Ryan.
“One very clear example of this is that we’re jumping into a very easy setup over a single wire.
Sony’s original PlayStation VR headset first appeared more than four years ago, and it requires a special camera adapter to use it on the PS5.
