Is My PSVR2 Still Broken?!

By Kireth | Mar 29, 2023

As a passionate gamer and content creator, I've been loving my time with the PSVR2 headset. But lately, I've been facing a persistent issue that's affecting my gaming experience, and I'm determined to find a solution. So, buckle up and join me on this journey as I document my struggles and attempts to resolve the tracking issues I'm experiencing with the PSVR2.

Ever since I started receiving comments asking about my PSVR2 headset's performance, I've been eager to find a fix for its tracking issues. Due to my busy work schedule, I haven't had as much time to play as I'd like. However, I recently managed to sit down in a well-lit area, rescanned the room, and tested the headset with the infrared light on, hoping for a better result.

Unfortunately, my vision continued to shift in PSVR2, with objects and the in-game view rotating even though the headset remained stationary. This was particularly noticeable while playing Gran Turismo 7, where the shifting made it difficult to focus on the race.

In my quest to find a solution, I received valuable suggestions from my viewers. One possible culprit was the microphone I use to create my videos, which I suspected could be causing interference with the headset's tracking. To test this theory, I tried using a ModMic sent to me by Antlion Audio. The ModMic attaches to the side of the headset, allowing me to move the original microphone out of the way.

With the ModMic in place, I tested the headset again. Sadly, the tracking issues persisted, and the problem didn't seem to be related to the microphone. However, I did appreciate the freedom the ModMic provided, and I might continue using it for my VR content if the audio quality is satisfactory.

At this point, I decided to try a different game, Swordsman, to see if the problem was specific to Gran Turismo 7. Unfortunately, the same shifting issues were present in Swordsman as well, which led me to believe that the problem might be a defect in the headset itself.

As much as I'd like to return the headset and get a replacement, I'm committed to finding a solution for those who may not have that option. I'm determined to continue troubleshooting and experimenting with different methods to resolve the tracking issues. 

In the meantime, I'll keep striving to fix my PSVR2 headset so that I can fully enjoy the world of virtual reality gaming and create more exciting content for my viewers. Thank you for your support, and I'll see you next time!
