NOW READ: PSVR 2 review

The vibration of the controllers, as well as of the headset, is quite unreal. The looks of it are quite catchy, and people are falling in love with it already as it offers a wider range of game selections. PSVR 2 is not only for playing games, it can be used in many other ways. But here we’ll discuss whether this advanced tech can be used as a screen.

Using PSVR 2 as a Screen

An exciting fact about this product is that a cinematic function is available for which Sony provides two modes of display. The 4K one is listed as one of its features, and the other one is HD,  which can be used to play 2-dimensional games as well as watch movies. But according to the reviews, using it for your games is better than watching a movie.

Another feature it can work as is a replacement for your television. You can connect it directly to your PS5 via a USB cable and play on it as well.

PSVR 2, being plugged directly into a PC, works as a second screen. But the resolution drops to 1080p. It can be used as a second screen for desktops as well.
