On top of the new games news, there is also news of an actual new PlayStation VR. A patent for a new PlayStation VR headset was recently discovered by LetsGoDigital.

This may be launched alongside, or just after, the PS5, as Eurogamer reports. The filing is from February 2019 but was only discovered earlier this week.

Images from the patent filing show a design for a PSVR headset that includes two front cameras and one camera at the rear.

Another camera is included on a controller that resembles the one for the PlayStation Move. A microphone will again be included.

Overall, the new iteration looks very much like the current version of Playstation VR.
