Sony Reveals New Playstation VR 2 Controllers

Shadowmask72
Level 16

Interesting, but somehow remind me a little of the Pimax sword controllers. I wonder how susceptible to damage these will be when bringing controllers to face for things like aiming with a bow etc or hitting the headset/solid surfaces?

Features

The new VR controller enables players to feel and interact with games in a much more visceral way. There are several features, including key features from the DualSense controller, which match our vision for what next-generation VR games can be.

●      Adaptive triggers: Each VR controller (Left and Right) includes an adaptive trigger button that adds palpable tension when pressed, similar to what’s found in the DualSense controller. If you’ve played a PS5 game, you’ll be familiar with the tension in the L2 or R2 buttons when you press them, such as when you’re drawing your bow to fire an arrow. When you take that kind of mechanic and apply it to VR, the experience is amplified to the next level.

●       Haptic feedback: The new controller will have haptic feedback optimized for its form factor, making every sensation in the game world more impactful, textured and nuanced. When you’re traversing through rocky desert or trading blows in melee combat, you’ll feel the difference, magnifying the extraordinary visual and audio experience that’s so central to VR.

●       Finger touch detection: The controller can detect your fingers without any pressing in the areas where you place your thumb, index, or middle fingers. This enables you to make more natural gestures with your hands during gameplay.

●       Tracking: The VR controller is tracked by the new VR headset through a tracking ring across the bottom of the controller.

●       Action buttons / analog sticks: The Left controller contains one analog stick, the triangle and square buttons, a “grip” button (L1), trigger button (L2) and Create button. The Right controller contains one analog stick, the cross and circle buttons, a “grip” button (R1), trigger button (R2) and Options button. The “grip” button can be used to pick up in-game objects, as one example.



System Specs: ASUS NVIDIA RTX 3090 TUF GAMING OC 24GB , i9 9900K CPU, 16 GB DDR 4 RAM, Win 10 64 Bit OS.

It does look like it has one extra button per controller compared to Touch, and no analog grip (just a vive style button). But we'll have to wait to see the true specs I guess.

After the utter nighmare that are the present PSmove controllers, these look like a gift from god himself, so can't wait, plus by the time the world is able to get back to normal the PS5 and no doubt the PSVR2 will be at arms reach for everyone.

Now we only need Sony to stick with Oled and the PSVR2 might be the perfect system, and slap me with a kipper and call me Susan if some smart modder does not make the PSVR2 work with PCVR seeing as it is now using inside out tracking with a one cable solution, this could be a very interesting HMD and controllers for PCVR.

What extra button? They each have a stick, grip button and trigger, two face buttons, and a small button (Create/Options) that I assumed corresponds to the menu buttons on Touch.

Seems the PS2VR controllers will have finger touch detection, not full finger tracking. PS2VR may work like Touch with the thumb detection (on/off) and not for all fingers (I read thumb + index + middle fingers, so 3/5 fingers on each hand) - thus not the full Monty like this:

 

 

- But Index controllers cost about 75% of Sony's intended PS5 price. 

i7 7700K (4.5GHz); MSI GTX 1080 8GB Gaming X (oc 2100MHz gpu boost, 11GHz mem speed); 16GB 3200MHz; MSI Z270I (VR-Ready) mainboard; Samsung 961 NVMe 128GB (OS) + Samsung 860 4TB SSD (games) + Toshiba P300 HDD 3TB (games); Win10; Valve Index and Oculus Rift CV1 using super sampling 2.0.      "Ask not what VR can do for you – ask what you can do for VR"

I guess they've broken the standard set by the Dual Shock 2, Dual Shock 3, Dual Shock 4, PS Move and Dual Sense of having a button with the PS logo for home. The PS5 Dual Sense (I have one) has the same looking glossy PS logo as on these new controllers as a button, so I assumed theirs is a button too. But I guess not.
