Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) introduced the upgraded designs for its PS5 virtual reality (VR) components, such as the PlayStation VR2 Sense controllers, and PlayStation VR2 headset on Tuesday. According to Sony, the VR2 was created in tandem with the PS5, as seen by the white and black color scheme of the new headset and controller.

The first PlayStation VR headset was released in October of 2016. ShuheiYoshida, president of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios, first debuted the headgear at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) in 2014, then Sony upgraded the device at GDC in March of 2015, as mentioned by the Anime News Network site.
