The head-mounted display will boast a 90-degree field of view with 1080p resolution, accurately tracking the user's head movement in real time using a built-in accelerometer and gyroscopic sensors. The headset will be fully compatible with the PS4's DuelShock 4 wireless controller as well as PlayStation Move, to create an easy plug-in-and-go VR experience. The device will also utilize Sony's 3D audio technology designed to create stereoscopic directional sound, changing as the user moves their head.
The prototype is set to be used as an initial development kit for Sony console game developers. Mr Yoshida believes that the new system will "deliver a sense of presence, where you as the player actually feel like you’re inside the game and your emotions feel that much more real."
