With the latest generation of VR technology, Sony hopes to increase the range of their virtual reality products on the Platform PlayStation.

"We launched PlayStation VR over four years ago to provide a revolutionary alternative way to play games on PS4", giving players a much stronger sense of presence and immersion than traditional games. In that time, we've seen incredible experiences like Astro Bot: Rescue Mission, Tetris Effect, Blood & Truth, Moss, Beat Saber, and Resident Evil 7 biohazard, all of which have helped to propel virtual reality gaming forward. On PS4 Pro and PlayStation 5, we've also improved the experience for some PS VR games.

Today, I'm excited to announce that our next-generation VR system will be available on PlayStation 5, allowing for the ultimate entertainment experience with dramatic performance and interactivity improvements. When players put on the new headset, they will feel a stronger sense of presence and will be more immersed in their game worlds.

With our new VR system, we're continuing to innovate so that our fans can continue to enjoy the one-of-a-kind experiences that are synonymous with PlayStation. We're using what we've learned since launching PS VR on PS4 to create a next-generation VR system with improved resolution, field of view, tracking, and input. It will connect to PS5 via a single cord, making setup and use easier while providing a high-fidelity visual experience.

Our new VR controller, which will incorporate some key features found in the DualSense wireless controller, and a focus on great ergonomics, is one innovation we're excited about. That's just one example of the future-proof technology we're working on to support our vision for a new generation of virtual reality games and experiences.

Our new virtual reality system is still in development, so it won't be available until 2021. However, we wanted to give our fans an early update because the development community has worked on new virtual reality worlds for you to explore.

We'd also like to thank all of our PS VR players for their continued support — with games like After The Fall, Sniper Elite VR, and Humanity on the way, there's plenty more to come for PS VR, whether you're on PS4 or PS5. Our commitment to virtual reality as a gaming medium is stronger than ever, thanks to PlayStation VR and the next-generation VR system we're developing. We hope to provide more information in the future!
