When you compare the Sony PlayStation VR to the Oculus Quest 2 you can see which VR Headset is better. Let's take a look of the comparison, and see which model of VR Headset out ontop.
Having had the pleasure of reviewing both the Sony PlayStation VR and the Oculus Quest 2, I am in a position to provide a thorough comparison between the two. Starting with their respective type, the Sony Playstation VR is designed for PC use whereas the Oculus Quest 2 is a standalone device with an integrated processor and operating system (Android 10).
In terms of field of view, the PlayStation VR offers 100° while the Quest 2 offers 97°. This gives users on both headsets wide angle views but Sony's offering wins out here. When it comes to resolution however, it's almost a draw as they offer 1920 × 1080 px and 1832 x 1920 px respectively.
Moving onto tracking technology, both headsets are equipped with 360 tracking sensors so no real differences there. However when it comes to refresh rates this is where we see greater differences; PlayStation VR has 120 Hz while Oculus Quest 2 has 72 Hz which impacts performance in higher-end graphics applications that require more frames per second than what you'd get from 72 Hz refresh rate. So if you're looking for higher graphical performance then PlayStation may be a better choice overall.
Lastly let’s talk about room scale which can make all the difference for gamers who enjoy immersion in their experiences. The PSVR headset requires additional set up time due to cables connecting your TV or monitor and console - whereas Oculus uses its own processing power allowing you total freedom of movement without needing external wiring or setup time - giving it an advantage here over its competitor.
For me personally I found that gaming on both headsets was enjoyable though each had their own unique advantages - particularly when it came to freedom of movement offered by Quest's room scale capability versus PSVR's immersive visuals delivered by its superior refresh rate capabilities making sure high end games were smooth running on my setup. Ultimately deciding between them will come down to personal preference and your individual needs but hopefully this review will help give some insight into what separates these two headsets apart from one another.
