Sony PlayStation released the first look at its updated version of a “virtual reality” headset design on Tuesday.

A press release from PlayStation shows various images of the new “PlayStation VR2” design and describes how it will stand out compared to other headsets.

“Our goal is to create a headset that will not only become an attractive part of your living room decor but will also keep you immersed in your game world, to the point where you almost forget you are using a headset or controller,” Senior Vice President Hideaki Nishino said in the release.

The move comes as hype for the development of the “Metaverse” progresses. Meta has committed $10 billion to the creation of its virtual reality world to be fully developed within the next year. The PlayStation VR2 will be assembled for the PlayStation and for the Metaverse.

Multiple companies have realized the potential of the Metaverse and want to offer devoted users tools for the upcoming virtual world through its branding. Apple is expected to release its version of a virtual reality headset as well, according to reports.

Sony wants its devoted users to be attracted to its headset due to its ability of dual-use between the PlayStation and the Metaverse.

The new Sony virtual headset will also be the launch of the brand's own advanced virtual reality games and gaming effects.

“When PS VR2 launches, it’ll take a giant leap forward in the way we play games in virtual reality,” Nishino said in the release.

This will include effects like, “visual fidelity in 4K HDR and state-of-art graphical rendering, enhanced tracking such as inside-out camera tracking, new PlayStation VR2 Sense Technology features such as headset feedback, and the new, intuitive PS VR2 Sense controller that creates an incredibly deep feeling of immersion,” Nishino added.

The official release date and pricing of the PlayStation VR2 headset is still unknown but is expected to be released within the next year.

"PS VR2 development kits are already in the hands of game creators, and we are excited for what they’ll come up with to truly make virtual reality a remarkable experience for gamers. We look forward to sharing more details with you about PS VR2. Stay tuned!" Nishino said in the release.
