One point that particularly caught our attention is that the screen of the future virtual reality headset support a refresh rate of 120 Hz, where competition (Oculus Rift, HTC Vive Pre), reach 90 Hz, but on two screens instead of one.

    Helmets "high end" will therefore be better refreshed, but still 120 Hz will have "real" games at 60 frames per second and Sony insists that framerate offer to its customers. "The framerate is really important (...) 60 fps is the minimum acceptable" explained Chris Norden, an engineer at Sony in charge of relations with developers Gamasutra quoted, then no drop hammering would not be tolerated.

    120 fps simulated

    The firm, however, a technique to increase "artificially" rate the number of images per second reprojection. Basically, between two images calculated by the machine, a third is inserted and the latter is an average of the other two. A much less demanding processing resources and to "simulate" 120 fps. Note that on undemanding games, we can actually calculate all the images at this rate.

    As for the rest of the technical specifications, it will have an OLED 5.7 inch with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels (960 x 1080 per eye) with an RGB LED array for an optimal view HD images and providing a field of view to 100 degrees. PS VR arrive in October 2016 for $ 400 (excluding accessories).
