Whether you like it or not (or play it or not), VR technology is an indispensable step forward in the future of the gaming industry. Not long ago, Valve announced the game Half-Life: Alyx, a compilation of two things that were supposed to never appear: a great VR game, and content directly related to the Half-Life game universe.

Sony is also reluctant to lag behind in VR technology development: not long after announcing the PSVR’s descendants for the PlayStation 5, Sony announced two new handsets with a new design.

These two handles also feature unique technologies that only the PS5 hand has: an adaptive trigger button that allows the controller to simulate game elements, such as the tension of the bowstring or many other details. other; haptic feedback technology “optimize related factors“, Not only pure vibration but also enhances every feeling that the game brings. At least Sony is promoting new VR controllers like that.

The PSVR handle also has the ability to “finger detection“, Will automatically recognize the thumb, index finger and middle finger of the player placed on the handle. On the controller’s body is also a “pawn” button, designed for the middle finger, allowing you to interact and move objects in virtual reality space.

We don’t yet know the official launch date of Sony’s VR device, but CEO Jim Ryan told The Washington Post in late 2020, we have reason to expect: “PlayStation believes in VR. Sony believes in VR, and we firmly believe that the time will come when VR will be the great ambassador of the interactive entertainment industry. Will be released this year? Not. What about next year? Not even. But when will it come? I believe so“.

As of 2016, Sony has sold more than 5 million PlayStation VR sets, surpassing 4.2 million units in early 2019. This figure shows that PSVR is one of the best-selling virtual reality glasses to date, until Oculus Quest glasses outperformed PSVR sales in recent months.
