Secret PS5 headset 'PSVR 2' tested by gamers – and everyone is saying the same thing

THE NEW PlayStation virtual reality headset isn't even out yet but is already blowing fans away.

Some of the first gamers to try out the PSVR2 have shared their thoughts following its appearance at a conference this week.

The device, which allows players to enter immersive, virtual worlds, was playable for the first time at a Sony showcase at GDC in San Francisco.

Attendees heaped praise on the device on social media, with one tester calling it "soooo good".

The plaudits were led by Chet Faliszek, a former Valve worker who is now CEO of U.S. game studio StrayBombay.

He tweeted on Thursday: "Had one of those VR moments today playing in the new PSVR2 hmd.

"You know where the world just feels different when you return? Sooooo good."

Others claimed to have tried the gear out for themselves in responses to his comments on forum site ResetEra.

One fan claimed that Faliszek's words were not "hyperbolic".

It's unclear whether the headset is available to play as part of a public demo at GDC or to specially selected people behind closed doors.

Sony confirmed in February 2021 that it is working on a new version of its PlayStation VR headset designed for the PlayStation 5.

The Japanese tech titan said that the new gear, out later this year, promises "dramatic leaps in performance and interactivity".

Sony's original PSVR system hit shelves four years ago and is now the best-selling high-end VR headset ever.

The wearable gear, which also plugs into the PS5, lets players immerse themselves in virtual reality games processed through their console.

Starting at £260, players can bolster their set-up by paying for extra gear in the form of special VR controllers, which ship for £70 for a pair.

The PSVR2 will boast an OLED display with a 2000 x 2040 pixel resolution per eye, as well as a 120Hz refresh rate.
