Was coming here to post this, brilliant! im just glad they are still interested in VR because its been so quiet from them.

Confirmed that its wired, not wireless, but just 1 wire and no breakout box.

Also brand new controllers taking features from the new DuelSense 5 controller , so thats got to be feedback triggers and haptics.

Also no mention of camera, so hopefully its insideout tracking, and no need for a camera and glowy balls on sticks, also makes sense that the ds5 has no light on it but im sure will be used for some games.

A year away at least but pretty happy about this.

Great to hear something even if there is no specs just yet, Still wired is to be expected we are not at the stage for 100% latency-free at AAA levels for wireless, not even PC can do that.

No camera it seems which leads to inside tracking which the patents suggested so that's great, none of the current PSVR issues with relying on the camera to track controllers or the headset, it should make for a much better gameplay experience especially with the new controllers for it.

Not this year for release i expected as much what with the current situation delaying many things I would guess October/November of 2022 around the time the current PSVR released

Great news! I loved the VR experience on the PS4, but sadly it was often too much of a pain to set up and use. I also suffered from sickness on some games which limited my use of it. If they can make it less cumbersome in terms of wires etc. then that will be great. Not using a camera to track will also be a bonus. Other than that, reducing the weight would be great, as well as obviously the screen resolution. The key one is what they can do to reduce the motion sickness aspect as that does limit the audience as a piece of serious gaming kit.

Sony did have some patents around reducing sickness in VR so it will be interesting to see what they can do.

I had very mixed results with games on PSVR. Some games I'd be fine with full smooth movement and others would make me sick in a couple of minutes.

I hope they stick with the halo design, the PSVR is one of the comfyest headsets for me, more comfortable that the quest which is very front heavy.

I’ve held off VR due to it being new tech and gambled that the PS5 will deliver a better all round experience, so I’m very happy to hear this...take my money

YES! absolutely brilliant news. VR takes things to a different level and I honestly didn't know if Sony would continue with it.
I'm over the moon with this news.
I'm fine with a single cable as well, upgraded screen and control system will be awesome.

Some good positive info re the next VR iteration. Ticks the main box the majority would have i'd say in new controllers specifically for VR, which will really open up the immersive and gaming design potential significant;y. Plus hopefully the tracking method not requiring the camera will be a massive improvement. I know many want wireless, but personally a single cable is no issue for me as will no doubt have plenty of length as the current PSVR one does so never a problem. I think it was always inevitable as the perfoirmance will be better wired.

I've not used my PSVR anywhere near enough, much like the PS4 in general really, but some of the experiences had have been fantastic. Have many games bought in sales i've still not even tried. Have been thinking once i get a PS5 i'll dip back in as hope the slight improvements (as for the Pro via back compat) will make it a better experience than on my Slim, even if only slightly. Did feel a bit rough on a few games but never really played enough consistently to get my VR legs to see if it would cease... on that though i've always thought once hardware is capable to produce a clean smooth textured image a lot of the nausea inducing aspects will reduce by default, which can only be a god thing.

Currently in no rush for a PS5 but will grab one as soon as readily available without the hassle, hopefully in a few months. Will definitely be all over this new PSVR when it launches, unless a crazy price early on, in which case i may wait...that said, GT7 with great visuals, full grids and i'm in day one.

Strong rumours of the next Horizon game having some element of VR; maybe not the full game, but perhaps some VR encounters/experiences. Yes please.
 
Not sure how that;s gong to work if Horizon makes its release date and comes out this year and VR isnt coming till 2022 or 2023. Might be a waste of there time.
