However, these seem not to be used by Sony, which prefers to rely on the products OLED from Samsung Display for the new generation of PlayStation VR on PS5, which should therefore take advantage of this technology for its integrated screens.
According to the state of production, according to Bloomberg the launch should take place in the course of 2022. The first model of PlayStation VR has reached 5 million units sold for some time, which represents a small fraction of the more than 115 million PS4s sold. but which in its market segment has a significant value, considering the adoption rate of these devices, so much so as to convince Sony to continue on this path with a new PlayStation VR for PS5.
Meanwhile, in recent months we have seen the first images of the new controllers designed by Sony for the next gen viewer, waiting to see the rest.
