Sony Files a Patent Suggests the PSVR 2 Design Improves on the Original Headset

Based on a New Sony Patent It Seems the PSVR 2 Will Be Innovative

It’s hard to argue that Sony’s PlayStation VR is the most popular gaming headset in the virtual reality realm right now. In fact, the last sales numbers revealed that it has sold over 3 million units, and that was all the way back in August of 2018. Now despite its increasing popularity, Sony is looking to improve its original model and according to a new patent, PSVR 2 is going to be slick.

As many may know, whether you’ve purchased a PSVR or not, the virtual reality headset has a lot of wires, but according to the recently filed patent for the PSVR 2, it seems this will be an issue of the past. That’s right, Sony is looking to make their second iteration of the headset better and more comfortable than ever before by going wireless.

According to the new patent, the upcoming edition of the PlayStation VR will have the capability to switch transmission frequencies to allow the PSVR 2 to have a strong and steady connection without all the hassle of wires. Here’s what the patent says, “A frequency band determination device, a head mount display, a frequency band determination method, and a program capable of switching a frequency band used for communication earlier than before according to a change in an environment in which a communication device or a communication partner is placed.”

Now keep it mind that while a patent has been filed that suggests the PSVR 2 will be wireless doesn’t necessarily mean it will be 100%. Sometimes the patented technology just doesn’t get implemented, so only time will tell what the new Sony virtual reality headset will feature. At this time, there’s been zero mention of the PlayStation VR 2 from Sony, but many fans are speculating that’s because they plan on making the PSVR 2 available to play using the next-generation PlayStation console.
