Sony has today acknowledged the image drifting issues that a number of PlayStation VR users have reported since the unit launched earlier in the month.
After scores of players took to social media to complain that their experiences with the virtual reality headset had been blighted by issue, Sony has finally responded by creating a troubleshooting article on the help section of its website relating to the problem.
In it, the company points to interference with the PlayStation Camera as being the main source of screen drift; it claims that users playing with their DualShock 4 controller plugged in via its charging cable can obstruct the camera’s view of the light bar, while also suggesting that vibrations may be interfering with the camera itself.
Sony recommends that users play their games wirelessly to avoid the first issue, while offering guidance on the optimal distance and angle players should sit or stand at in relation to the camera. In short, it suggests playing directly in front of the camera, which should be set up in a vibration-free area.
