During their late evening CES 2022 conference, Sony revealed technical specs for PlayStation VR2 and the PlayStation VR2 Sense controller.

Sony says that PSVR2 will offer a "true next-gen experience with high-fidelity visuals, new sensory features, and enhanced tracking." Given the impressive specifications that they revealed tonight, we're inclined to believe it.

This thing will feature an impressive display resolution of 2000x2040 pixels per eye. The OLED displays will also be capable of outputting an HDR image at a 110-degree field of view.

The headset will also incorporate eye tracking, foveated rendering, and haptic feedback built into the headset itself. All of this is done through a single wired connection to the PlayStation 5 console. Haptic feedback and vibrations in the headset itself might sound weird at first but it's apparently super useful for reducing motion sickness.

Foveated rendering is a technique that utilizes eye tracking within the VR headset to reduce image quality in your peripheral vision. Wherever you aren't actually looking will be rendered at a greatly reduced image quality to reduce the workload on the hardware. Think about how your eye works and it makes a lot of sense. You only clearly see what you're looking at directly. Everything else around that point is there but blurry.

The full specs for both PlayStation VR2 and the VR2 Sense controllers can be found below.
