I thought PSVR 2 would solve motion sickness… I was wrong

I've been eagerly awaiting PSVR 2 for some time because of one promise; this next-gen VR headset for PlayStation 5 will finally see-off motion sickness. One of the reasons VR has been bubbling under everyone's radar but never fully taking off is because it can cause nausea. PSVR 2 has the advanced tech to solve this queasiness, or so I thought.

Let's recap a little. Having owned and regularly played on PSVR for PS4 I had the misfortune to play Fracked for a review, a game so poorly optimised I needed to lie in a dark room for nearly two hours to let my stomach settle. Like a kind of VR aversion therapy, even the idea of picking up PSVR again made me ill.
