PlayStation VR – The Ultimate Virtual Reality Gaming Display

PlayStation VR Player

Gamers out there talk about PlayStation VR, which is currently creating a buzz in the gaming world. If you are a gamer, then you must be familiar and aware of this virtual reality gaming display.



PlayStation VR – What Is It?

PlayStation VR is the virtual reality gaming display that can be used by wearing it on. It is a head-mounting gaming display, which was developed and introduced by Sony Interactive Entertainment. It was created by Sony and is planned to be launched on October 12 2016.

PlayStation VR has been designed to be completely functional with the PlayStation 4 home video game console. In some demos and games for the VR, the player who wears the headset acts distinctly from some other players with no headset.

With this PlayStation VR, you will find that the video output is projecting differently for the console and headset. And at times, the PlayStation Move controllers will be required.

A Peek on Its Amazing Features

PlayStation VR comes with a host of amazing features. First of all, it comes with a 5.7-inch OLED panel with a RGB sub-pixel matrix resolution of up to 1080p, which is equivalent to 960xGBx1080p per eye.

When it comes to the headset, it features a processor box that lets the headset ‘second screen’ the video output straight to any monitor and then raise the 3D audio effect that is used in a 3.5mm headphone jack.



Apart from that, the headset also comes with nine positional LED’s on the surface of it, so that the PlayStation Camera will be able to track a 360-degree head motion and connect to PlayStation by USB and HDMI.

The Functionalities of PlayStation VR

Cooperative Gameplay

PlayStation VR can render two various images at the same time: one image for the headset, while another different display will be for the television. According to Sony, the purpose for it is to prevent PlayStation VR itself from consistently being an introverted experience.

To make it clearer, Sony’s Japan Studio created a demo that was known as the Monster Escape, which is a 5-player game wherein one player is playing against four.

One player wears the PlayStation VR and according to them, when you are wearing it, you will be the ‘Monster’, controlling the game with just your head movements.

The other 4 players will hold the DualShock 4 and look at the television playing the game against the player wearing the headset.

Another game called Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes features a similar gameplay concept. To keep the person who wears PlayStation VR stabilized, one of the other 4 players must hold the instruction manual and has to guide the player who wears the gaming tool the steps in doing the job.

On the other hand, the one who guides the ‘Monster’ cannot see what the others can see through the PlayStation VR. To enjoy its use, both of them have to communicate to each other effectively.

Cinematic Mode

According to Sony, every regular PlayStation 4 game could be played in the so called ‘cinematic mode’, which simulates the 5-meter screen inside the virtual space. PlayStation VR uses this ‘cinematic mode’ and additionally enables users to view 360-degree photographs and videos, which were captured by devices like an omnidirectional camera over the media player.

Some other features like Share Play & Live from the PlayStation will also be compatible with the headset.
