According to reports, the Sony PlayStation VR 2 is the best platform for certain VR applications (Virtual Reality). According to a company executive, the system can even outperform high-end PCs equipped with the powerful Nvidia RTX 3090 GPU.
On the tactical military shooter Pavlov, which is the VR version of Counter-Strike, the PS VR 2 outperformed such a capable desktop PC. Furthermore, this is just one of the more than 30 launch titles available for the PlayStation VR 2. This VR title in particular was designed for PC VR systems and was first released on Steam in 2017.
The PlayStation VR 2 version of this title, on the other hand, will be released on February 22nd, 2023, and will even support cross-play with PC users.
David Villarreal, the CEO of the game’s studio, stated that the Sony VR-enabled system is the “pinnacle of virtual reality, especially for shooters.” This was not a statement about raw performance. The new PlayStation also includes adaptive triggers, which make each gun trigger feel distinct and have a different recoil and resistance feel. Villarreal went on to say that the VR game runs about 10% faster on the PS5 and PlayStation VR 2 than it does on a high-end PC with an RTX 3090.
A single RTX 3090 can cost as much as, if not more than, the console and VR headset combined. The performance advantage appears to be due to the fact that the system is a console and is capable of more efficient rendering via foveated rendering.
To put it simply, it is a simple method of rendering based on the user’s eye focus. In other words, eye tracking technology aids performance by requiring the system to only render the area being focused on in high resolution.
