Where is the Radar in Gran Turismo 7 if I’m using PSVR?
Look to the right during the race. Yes, every time you need to check your position radar, weather radar, traction control levels, or brake bias, just look to the right and a mini UI will appear.
It’s one element of the information on the screen, and it takes some getting used to, but you get used to it over time.
Items like speed, rpm, gear – it’s up to you to look inside the car and use the real instruments!
how does it look from the back?
When using the PSVR2 in Gran Turismo, all you have to do is move your head and look in the rearview or door mirrors.
If you’re in a race car with a monitor instead of a rearview mirror, look at it. There is no “look behind” button in VR. The same applies when checking to see if a car is approaching your side.
Tell me about eye tracking
Gran Turismo 7 Achieve foveal rendering using PSVR2’s eye-tracking system.
After completing a simple eye-tracking setup procedure reminiscent of an optician’s appointment, the game will be able to track your eyes. This means that processing power is allocated to what you are looking at rather than your surroundings.
In this application, during a quick hands-on preview, the effect is so subtle and focused on the race that the change in peripheral resolution is negligible.
