At 560g, the PS VR2 is lighter than the previous PS VR headset but packs in more tech. The Inside Out cameras on the PS VR2 mean you don’t need an external camera to track your movements. It uses all sorts of sensors and cameras within the headset to track your position. The PS VR2 will also let you see your surroundings in real-time thanks to those cameras embedded in the PS VR2 and there’s a dedicated button for the See-Through View feature.
The See-Through View feature also lets you customise the size of your play area. However, you can also play the games in three different VR play styles. Roomscale allows for more movement and needs a minimum play area of 2m × 2m (6 ft 7 in × 6 ft 7 in) in the room. In this play style, you can go about moving and flailing your arms. Sitting is for exactly how it sounds and requires a minimum play area of 1m × 1m (3ft 4in × 3ft 4in) so that you can move your arms freely. The third is the Standing play style which needs a minimum play area of 1m × 1m (3ft 4in × 3ft 4in).
The PS VR2 is not completely cord-free. You get a single 4.5m (14.7ft) USB Type-C cable that connects directly to the PS5. It’s a pretty long cable so you don’t have multiple cables hanging from your head like the Predator. The headset also has in-built microphones for chat and a headphone jack.
