This is not an easy issue to explain and it can be a frustrating issue to properly diagnose and resolve. Sometimes, some PlayStation VR users find a slight rotation in the video or game they are in. The headset wobbles on its axis, even if you are standing or sitting completely still. The essence of this wobble effect lies in the tracking method that Sony uses for PlayStation VR. As cool as these futuristic lights seem to be, when you’re in the middle of a game, using a single camera system to track this lighting in a room can get you into trouble.
Here are some of the best ways to eliminate wobble on PlayStation VR.
Make sure your camera is not wobbly.
If your camera is moving, the VR world will wobble with it. While your camera may be positioned at the top or bottom of your TV to best capture your activities, sometimes strong movements can cause the TV itself to vibrate. Big TVs on small entertainment stands, or a room that shakes as you stomp in a game will make your camera shake along with everything else.
The easiest way to diagnose this is when someone is looking at the camera while you are playing a game. If they notice the wobble, you’ll need a firmer surface for your camera to ditch the wobble.
Coat reflective surfaces
Your PlayStation Eye camera reads these blue lights and uses this information to figure out where you are in the room and how you move. It’s not a perfect system, especially if you’re in a well lit room. Even if you dim the lights to get better tracking, reflective surfaces in the room you’re playing in can ruin your PlayStation Eye camera. When blue light bounces, the camera picks up the reflection and tries to adjust tracking. For some, this causes the image to wobble.
Look around your room in low light with PSVR on. If you see any obvious reflections from, say, photo frames or windows with no painted tints, cover or remove those surfaces and see if that fixes your wobble.
