In February, Sony announced its next-generation PSVR headset, confirming that it will have an updated system with better visuals, improved ease of use, and a single cord design.

Sony later revealed more details about the PS5 VR controller, saying that it will “build upon the innovation we introduced with the DualSense wireless controller” as well as sharing brand new images of the device.

The company is yet to reveal official details about the headset which will go alongside the controller, but previously confirmed that there’s “so much more to share about the next-generation of VR on PS5”.

Elsewhere, a PlayStation 5 redesign is reportedly set to go into production in 2022.
