- Lamps (switch them off or dim them).
- Direct sunlight (close your blinds).
- TV screens.
- Flashing lights.
- LEDs on other devices (e.g. laptops).
- Mirrors catching the reflection of headset or controller tracking lights or off-camera light sources.
Make sure you configure PlayStation VR (PS VR) every time you play. This is because changes in player position or room lighting need to be taken into account.
Some users may experience dizziness or motion sickness. We recommend:
Check that your room is set up for the best possible VR experience:
The darker your room is, the better. To make sure the PlayStation Camera (PS Camera) can correctly track the PS VR headset lights, DualShock 4 wireless controller light bar and PlayStation Move or PlayStation Aim lights, make sure it can’t see:
If you think the headset or controller lights aren’t tracking correctly:
If the screen shifts to one side, press and hold the Options button on your DualShock 4 wireless controller to re-centre the screen.
At times the camera may not properly track the position, direction, or movement of your VR headset or controller.
Go to [Settings] > [Devices] > [PlayStation VR] on your PS4 system, and try these adjustments:
Position your camera so that it properly recognizes your face.
Adjust the lights on your VR headset or controller so that the camera can properly track them.
When you pause a VR-compatible game and the PS4 system home screen appears, the quality of the video output to your TV will be temporarily reduced. This is expected. Image quality will return to normal when you quit the game.
You can wear the VR headset over your glasses but take care when adjusting the scope. Having your glasses touch the lens could result in damage to your glasses, VR headset lens or both. Do not push in or pull out the scope excessively.
If you notice that PS VR environments are unclear or fuzzy while you’re wearing your glasses, try taking them off and readjust the scope position before you start play. Try playing with and without your glasses to find out what works best for you.
