The PSVR2 headset and Sense controller are separated in dual teardown videos



With the PSVR2 available from February 22 just around the corner, anticipation for Sony’s latest piece of hardware is quickly approaching fever pitch. We went hands-on with the device and were impressed with what we were shown.

Today, we have something a little more overtly technical to whet your appetite; How would you like to see Takamasa Araki, lead designer on the PSVR and PSVR2 headsets, break down an incredible piece of technology into its component parts? Just make sure to turn on the subtitles.

Araki discusses how the mechanical design team incorporated feedback from PSVR into PSVR2, designing the symmetrical headset in mind. Light and compact, it was also designed to be robust in case of accidents, but we’d recommend not dropping it just to be sure.

Additionally, we get to see Takeshi Igarashi, the designer of both the PSVR2’s next-gen Sense controllers as well as DullSense, giving the PSVR’s awkward Move controller the same treatment for a cool-looking replacement.

Igarashi explains the features that take the Sense controller to the next level. First, enhanced tracking technology is used to enhance the sense of immersion, using finger touch detection to allow for more natural-feeling hand gestures during gameplay. Of course, the Sense controller enjoys the advanced haptic feedback and customizable triggers of its DualSense cousin, which are carefully used to bring you further into the gaming experience.

Are you just as excited to get to grips with PSVR2? Will you pick one up on launch day? Get lost in a virtual world in the comments section below.
