Sony has today announced that they are developing a spiritual successor to the PlayStation VR headset and it will be coming to the PS5 at an unspecified time.

The PlayStation VR headset was Sony’s first proper foray into virtual reality gaming and it did a great job. The sophisticated piece of technology was able to seamlessly create a virtual 3D playground for you to immerse yourself in, and there was plenty of top titles that accompanied it.

From critically-acclaimed games such as Astro Bot, Beat Saber, and Blood & Truth, to games that translated excellently into VR such as Tetris Effect and Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, PSVR delivered on its potential.

PSVR 2: New games, VR Controller, release date

The announcement of the follow-up to PlayStation VR came via the Official PlayStation blog as it dropped the bombshell news.

The post said: “Today I’m pleased to share that our next-generation VR system will be coming to PlayStation 5, enabling the ultimate entertainment experience with dramatic leaps in performance and interactivity. Players will feel an even greater sense of presence and become even more immersed in their game worlds once they put on the new headset.

We’re continuing to innovate with our new VR system so that our fans can continue to enjoy the unique experiences that are synonymous with PlayStation. We’re taking what we’ve learned since launching PS VR on PS4 to develop a next-gen VR system that enhances everything from resolution and field of view to tracking and input. It will connect to PS5 with a single cord to simplify setup and improve ease-of-use, while enabling a high-fidelity visual experience. 

One of the innovations we’re excited about is our new VR controller, which will incorporate some of the key features found in the DualSense wireless controller, along with a focus on great ergonomics. That’s just one of the examples of future-proof technology we’re developing to match our vision for a whole new generation of VR games and experiences. 

There’s still a lot of development underway for our new VR system, so it won’t be launching in 2021. But we wanted to provide this early update to our fans, as the development community has started to work on creating new worlds for you to explore in virtual reality.”

This is sudden news but it was to be expected given how well PSVR sold, and it was heavily rumored that Sony would commission work on a newer model for the PS5.

We already had lots of big games to look forward to in 2021, and this announcement will only fuel speculation on what else could be announced.

Obviously, it could still be sometime before we get our hands on the latest piece of virtual reality tech from Sony. But given how thorough they are with regards to development, it should hopefully be worth the wait.

Lautaro Martinez is a fantastic ST in FIFA 22, and FUT players are going to want to complete his TOTY Honourable Mentions SBC.

Martinez Honourable Mentions SBC

Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez has received an Honourable Mentions SBC to go along with the 15 players included in the promo’s squad. Here’s how you can complete the Lautaro Martinez FIFA 22 TOTY Honourable Mentions SBC.

The Honourable Mentions promo is set to accompany the TOTY by highlighting incredible players that just missed the cut. Cristiano Ronaldo joins the TOTY as the 12th Man, while 15 players make up the Honourable Mentions squad.

In addition to these 15 players, FUT fans will have the chance to snap up more Honourable Mentions via Objectives and SBCs. Argentine striker Lautaro Martinez is one of the players up for grabs.

Ultimate Team players will be required to submit three squads to get their hands on this well-rounded ST, and we’ve got the cheapest solution to give you a hand.

Martinez may lack the ability to set up your forward players as a shoot-first striker but he’ll certainly bag a lot of goals thanks to his impressive finishing stats and dynamic feel in-game. Martinez also benefits from 4* skills and 4* weak foot which adds to his bag of tricks.

Considering the price, players are getting a top-tier finisher at fair value. His agility and dribbling will not let you down. However, his Serie A allegiance makes him difficult to fit into meta squads if you don’t also use some Argentine players.

To complete this SBC players will need to give up three squads: Tactical Emulation, Argentina, and Serie A TIM. With a value of around 236,000 coins, Martinez should be well within reach for the majority of Ultimate Team players. This FIFA 22 SBC is a must for Serie A enthusiasts.

You can check out the cheapest solutions below.

  • # of players from Inter Milan: Min 1
  • # of TOTW players: Min 1
