The PSVR and the Oculus Quest 2 are two of the hottest-selling and highly-raved products in the VR realm. However, there is a distinct difference between the two – one is a VR extension or accessory, and the other is a VR console. The Oculus Quest 2 is designed to be a standalone VR headset that features an in-built Snapdragon XR2 processor, while the PSVR is intended to be more of an extension of the PS4 or PS5.
Graphic Performance and Resolution Quality
While the OLED screens are more premium and higher quality than the LCD screens featured in the Oculus Quest 2, the standalone headset offers users a significantly better VR visual experience than the PSVR.
Many critics have lauded the Quest 2's sharper and cleaner graphic quality due to its higher resolution quality of 1832 x 1920 each eye with the PenTile display arrangement. However, as LCD screens feature a separate backlight embedded in the headset, the Quest 2 will not deliver true black pixels. At the same time, the Sony OLED of the PSVR will be able to, as pixels illuminate by themselves.
The Quest 2 also features smoother and more seamless fluidity in movement due to its higher refresh rate of 120 Hz (when plugged in), while the PSVR supports only a 90Hz refresh rate. In contrast, the PSVR displays a larger field of view of up to 100 degrees, while the Quest 2 only features up to 89 degrees.
Ease of Setup and Operation
The Oculus Quest 2 provides users a uniquewireless VR experience that allows them to define their play area's boundaries around the space. It provides a completely portable mobile experience, allowing users that free-roaming and sensory experience that many are looking for. Additionally, the Oculus Quest 2 enables users to look at their surroundings without physically removing their headset, as they can choose to look at the room through the in-built cameras and sensors.
However, the PSVR will have to be tethered to the console. The setup and operation will prove to be a challenge due to the additional cables and accessories required to function. This makes the PSVR headset extremely unportable and immobile and will confine the user to one dedicated area. Furthermore, users will have to remove their headsets to view their surroundings physically. Compared to the Quest 2, you will never have to worry about its battery life running out as it is constantly plugged into the console.
The Oculus Quest 2 has add-ons and accessories that can be used to expand the variety of games for users beyond the Oculus store. The brand launched Oculus Link, which allows users to connect the headset to their PC and play more cross-buy compatible games traditionally only available on PC. While the Oculus Quest 2 comprises an impressive array of games, this added-on feature significantly expanded the library of games and applications available to users.
In contrast, the PSVR offers a more limited experience, as it is not compatible with a PC and can be only be used with the PS4 or PS5 consoles, thereby limiting the variety of games that the user has access to. However, one can argue PSVR offers more immersion in the VR experience. It provides users the option of a social screen that provides the spectator's view of someone playing and a cinematic mode that allows them to watch 2-D videos and films in a more engaging and interactive way.
