All About PlayStation Virtual Reality
Virtual Reality (VR) is an environment created using software and the user will see this environment as real. VR is experienced through sight and sound. The PlayStation (PS) VR system provides users with a VR experience using 360 degrees tracking of the head and a wide angled view of images delivered at a rate of 120Hz and uses 3D audio and all this allows the user to feel as though they have been transported to a whole new world or environment.
Players will need to have a PS VR system, PS4 console and PS Camera. The majority of PS VR games can use the DualShock 4 controller but if players would like to enhance their gaming experience they can purchase the PS Move motion controllers.
How Does it Work?
The PS VR is a VR headset that displays a different image to each of the eyes generated by the PS4 system. The VR headset has both LED lights and motion sensors and when combined with the PS camera the system will track the position of the head. The games and applications make use of this tracking and provide 3D visuals and audio to the user who will be transported to an immersive and virtual world. The DualShock 4, PS Move and PS VR Aim controllers are also tracked and allows the user to interact with the created virtual world. The PS Move and PS VR Aim controllers allows users to interact and control the games which gives them a feeling of an even greater presence in the created world. Most players will agree that having the Move controllers with enhanced hand-tracking will increase the immersive feeling of the game. Some PS VR games will also require players to have the Move controllers.
Players can use their PS VR to watch content in 2D by using the “cinematic mode”. This means that they can watch movies and play PS4 games on a huge virtual screen while wearing the VR headset. Players will need to use their PS Camera to set this up, but it is not needed when the cinematic mode is actively being used.
