In the same interview with Famitsu that provided some interesting advances on the possible arrival of a new PlayStation 5 model in 2023, Sony’s Hideaki Nishino discussed the benefits offered by the common design between PlayStation VR2 and PS5.
SIE Senior Vice President of Platform Experience explains to Japanese journalists the strategy adopted by Sony designers in shaping PlayStation 5 and the Virtual Reality headset that will debut on the market next February 22nd.
According to Nishino, PS VR2 was designed in parallel with PS5 to “unify its user experience” and overcome the problems faced by fans of VR games on PS4. In this regard, the Sony representative mentions the great simplification in managing the cables, the absence of external boxes and the possibility of connect PS VR2 to the front of PlayStation 5.
In fact, the Sony executive explains that “there is a USB-C port on the front of PlayStation 5 because we thought of it from the beginning as a connection port to PlayStation VR2. You see, the system adopted at the time to connect PS VR to PS4 had some issues, so to simplify things we decided to designing PlayStation VR2 together with PS5 from the beginning“.
