PSVR2 is getting Updates with see-through mode and how you can map out your room with boundaries for playing
With the impending VR headset, a new PSVR 2 function might enable some experiences that change the game. Sony’s PS5-specific VR headset is called PSVR 2. Some of the future headset’s features, like its simplified design, have previously been made known to us, but Sony’s most recent official update (opens in a new tab) has revealed even more tantalizing information. There is also a brand-new see-through mode included. Users of the PSVR 2 will be able to view their surroundings without removing the headset thanks to this. It’s a first for Sony’s VR output, but some top VR headsets enable comparable passthrough or augmented reality technology.

Your gaming space can be customized entirely with PSVR 2. You can scan your nearby area using the controls and built-in cameras on the headset. You can do this to change the size of your play area, which is helpful if you need a little more room or to section off different pieces of furniture. The new see-through mode is the PSVR 2 feature that, in my opinion, jumps out the most from Sony’s most recent blog post. And not just because it will make tasks like finding controllers and being aware of your surroundings much easier.
There won’t be a recording option while in the see-through mode, according to Sony, which also specifies that it is “for viewing only.” A smart choice, considering they most likely don’t want to broadcast their earthly possessions to others online. When PSVR 2 is released, I can’t help but wonder if this see-through mode will have any other tricks up its sleeve. It might open the door to augmented reality activities. It might be as easy as projecting complete 3D models onto the screen. Or even something more active, like fully functional augmented reality games. Maybe I will build a pool for some virtual fishing or construct a hidden object game.
In the end, the PSVR 2 becomes better with each update Sony releases for the headset. And even while I’m unsure whether or not we’ll be seeing some truly cutting-edge augmented reality experiences, just the idea excites me about the headset’s possibilities in general. The PSVR 2 is shaping up to be a rich feature set when you include ancillary features like a new broadcast mode that will allow you to film yourself with a PS5 HD Camera and support for a complete 360-degree view. Sony ends the blog post by promising that additional details on the PSVR 2 release date will be published in the near future.
