Sony is reportedly planning to continue using the OLED screen for its next-gen PlayStation VR headsets, which are reportedly ready for a 2022 Christmas launch.

After all, PSVR is the best-selling virtual reality headset, having sold more than three million units in two years. Those sales rose to five million in early 2020, according to Sony.

In addition to showing and detailing the drivers for the new headsets, the hardware manufacturer has revealed some concrete pieces of information about its next-generation virtual reality system.
