With Sony obviously gearing up for the next-gen PlayStation (which could be called the PlayStation 5), there are a lot of things to be excited for, but one thing that has been missing from next-gen discussing is the future of Sony’s VR headset, the PSVR.

Now, a new interview from CNET looks to shed some light on the future of virtual reality and the next PlayStation console.

What to expect from PSVR with Sony’s PlayStation 5

The virtual reality headset has done surprisingly well, but with so many new offerings from Oculus and other companies, the next iteration will really need to step it up. Here’s a rundown of what we could see from the future version:

  • Eye tracking could be present on the new headset (something no one else is currently putting into production)
  • Talks of a wireless version (expensive, but for those who hate cords, worth it)
  • New PlayStation Move controllers
  • Will most likely not launch beside the console

The other major takeaway from CNET’s interview with Sony’s Global Head of R&D for PlayStation, Dominic Mallinson, is that the current PSVR unit will be compatible with the next PlayStation console.

Overall, the future of VR on PlayStation seems promising, the big question remains, however – are people about dat VR life?
