Will PlayStation VR2 Come With An Amazing Cinematic Mode?!

TECH NEWS – Ahead of the launch of PlayStation VR2, Sony has detailed the VR headset’s stunning cinematic mode for PlayStation 5 games.



Sony Interactive Entertainment has published an official FAQ detailing the features of PlayStation VR2. Among them, it highlights the impressive movie mode for PlayStation 5 gamers. PS VR2 will be released towards the end of the month, with a staggering array of features and a diverse launch line-up of first and third-party games.

PlayStation VR2 is Sony’s next foray into VR gaming following the success of the first-generation PlayStation VR headset.

The PS VR2 headset harnesses the technical capabilities of the PlayStation 5 to deliver vivid, high refresh rate gameplay at 2000×2040 resolution per eye. Players control PlayStation VR2 games with the all-new Sense controllers, which include DualSense features such as haptic feedback and adaptive triggers. PS VR2’s launch line-up includes brand new games such as Horizon Call of the Mountain and Hello Neighbor: Search and Rescue. VR support is also available for existing PlayStation 5 games, including Gran Turismo 7 and Resident Evil Village. The PS VR 2 has a list price of $549.99, which is more than a PlayStation 5 console. But the headset could prove to be a real generational leap for Sony’s VR gaming efforts on launch day.

Sony has published the “final” FAQ for the PlayStation VR2. In it, it reveals new details about viewing modes. Among other things, the returning movie mode. Players can enjoy PS VR2 game content in VR mode, which displays up to 2000×2040 resolution per eye with HD support and a refresh rate of 90Hz to 120Hz. In movie mode, players can enjoy the non-VR game and media content on a virtual cinema screen. Video content in Cinema mode can be displayed in 1080p resolution with HDR support and a refresh rate of 24Hz-60Hz. PS VR2 supports a refresh rate of 120Hz for PlayStation 5 games when playing in cinematic mode.

PlayStation 5 audio and video are only displayed in cinematic mode through the PS VR2 headset: this is because there is no output from the TV side, as the image is displayed directly in the headset.

As a result, the cinematic mode is dedicated to the standalone viewing of video and game content.

Cinematic mode is beneficial for PS VR2 players who want to take a break from moving around in VR. This gives them a relaxing, cinematic experience. Additionally, cinematic mode provides an excellent opportunity for players to catch up on recent first-party PlayStation 5 releases such as God of War Ragnarok and Horizon Forbidden West.

PlayStation VR2 launches on 22 February, with more than 30 launch window titles to choose from. Sony will likely add VR2 support for more PlayStation 5 games shortly as it develops new titles. Third-party studios like Capcom and Hello Games are no strangers to PlayStation VR2 hardware. The future of the new VR headset already looks bright.
