Updating my playstation 2
It's worth taking this rumor with a huge pinch of salt as it hasn't been verified that this is an official internal email.In response to a request for comment, a Sony spokesperson stated: "We don’t comment on rumour and speculation". A new patent suggests the PSVR2 track eye movement and head motion. According to the Sony Interactive Entertainment patent, it will enhance immersion by refining what each eye sees - aka ‘parallax images’ - for improved stereoscopic depth.However, Siliconera spotted two new filings relating to Sony's virtual reality headset which could point to the sort of experiences the company is planning for the future.
The email also states that "top management of the marketing team started planning official consultations on the official marketing presentation of the new PSVR 2 device before the start of the fiscal year 2021", suggesting PSVR 2 may not release until late 2020 or 2021.
It’s almost certain that PSVR 2 will work exclusively with the Play Station 5, but we probably won't be seeing the next-generation Play Station until at least mid-2020.
With no official word yet on a Play Station 5 release date it's difficult to pin down exactly when we might get to see a PS5 console or the PSVR 2 - although Sony has confirmed we won't see the PS5 in 2019.
While Sony hasn't officially confirmed that PSVR 2 is in development, Yamauchi's comments suggest that the company will be leaning into VR in a big way when it comes to the upcoming PS5.“VR is something that really depends on the evolution of GPU power, and the hardware for it, like display devices even," Yamauchi continued.
"It’s something where you can never have enough computing power; there’s always going to be that hardware limit, and that limit is never going to be high enough for us!
