The distinctive design of the PlayStation buttons has been a basic element since the first console of the company, and it is something that the difference of competitors like Microsoft and Nintendo. This specific design has given the fans a feeling of familiarity between generations of consoles, and incorporating it to other PlayStation designs is an intelligent movement.

Unfortunately, Sony has not revealed a launch date for PlayStation VR2, but it will be interesting to see if it is successful for the company. While the audience of virtual reality has grown since the original PLAYSTATION VR headphones were launched, the technology remains quite specific. A large part of this is reduced to the cost; No price point has been announced for the VR2 peripheral, but the original headset was launched at $ 399. Assuming that follow-up has a similar price, it is a high cost, especially when so many PlayStation fanatics have had difficulty acquiring a PS5 With its $ 499 MSRP. With luck, PlayStation will offer enough support for the peripheral to be worth it!
