The features of the new PSVR 2, or what Sony prefers to call it as Next-Gen VR (NGVR), were already leaked before by various reliable insiders in the gaming industry.

On the other hand, WCCF Tech reported that the new VR headset of Sony will drastically enhance the virtual reality experiences of many players who own the in-demand PlayStation 5.
The new gaming device is planning to achieve this by using the so-called Flexible Scaling Resolution and Foveated Rendering. Sony explained that when these two features are worked together, they could let the headset scale resolution to generate VR outputs based on the operator's field of view.
Thanks to this innovation, interested consumers could expect better VR gaming experiences. Aside from these, the new PSVR 2 could also have haptics, which is specifically designed to improve immersion and reduce motion sickness of those who are not used to playing VR games, especially PS5 titles with a lot of movement visuals.
When Will PSVR 2 Arrive?
As of the moment, Sony still hasn't confirmed the actual release date of its new PlayStation VR 2. However, some leakers, including PSVR Without Parole, claimed that this new gaming gadget could arrive early this coming 2022.
If their claims are true, then that means the new virtual gaming tech would be released around January or February. However, you need to remember that this could still change depending on the production status of Sony.
