What’s more, the Sense controller is capable of detecting your fingers’ location, allowing you to make natural gestures. It comes with the following buttons:

  • Right: PS button, Options button, Circle, and Cross action buttons, R1 button, R2 button, and the Right Stick with R3 button.
  • Left: PS button, Create button, Triangle, and Square action buttons, L1 button, L2 button, and the Left Stick with L3 button.

The Headset

The PS VR2 headset allows you to truly escape into the world of gaming. With the addition of a headband adjustment dial, it also allows you to tighten the band. What’s more, you can also adjust the scope and expand or tighten the width of the band with the headband release button.

The headset also features a power button, a built-in microphone, and a function button that you can use to mute/unmute the microphone or switch to See Through View.

With a few adjustments and upgrades, Sony has managed to make both the PS VR 2 headset and controllers more functional, comfortable, and easier to use.

Why do the PSVR 2 sense contorllers both have a PS button? Is there a difference?

No, they both do the same thing: taking you to the quick menu. Presumably Sony put one of each controller in so the user could pick whichever one was the comfiest.

What is the battery life of the PSVR 2 controllers?

The controllers last around 4 -5 hours of gameplay. Though, this can be extended by turning off force feedback and other superfluous features.
