He continues stating: “PS VR2 has much more advanced features like the new controllers with haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, eye tracking, 3D audio. This means that developing PS VR2 games requires a completely different approach than the original PS VR. ”
This is the motivation given by Sony due to the fact that PS VR2 will not be compatible with games from the original PS VR. What do you think? Is this a problem for you, or is the new headset especially valuable for new games and not old ones?
