New patent shows Sony considered a screen on the front of a PSVR headset

PSVR 2 is still in the distant horizon as far as a release is concerned, but we may have just discovered a possible spring that could be included, or at least one that Sony considered for a while with a new patent that shows a screen on the outside of your VR headset for those who don’t play to see.

The patent was first noticed by the website VR focus, and it seems that Sony thought of this as a way for those who don’t play to understand what it’s like for those who play, and kind of see what they see. However, this patent dates from 2019, and Sony has a history of patenting plenty of ideas that don’t make it to the final product, so take this with a grain of salt.

We’re unlikely to see it the way it looks in these images here, although it would be interesting to see how a front-facing display would be implemented if they went this route.
