How to fix Switchback VR blurry and low resolution graphics

When playing Switchback VR on the PlayStation VR2, you may notice that the graphics look very blurry. To see how you can fix this low resolution problem, you can take a look at this troubleshooting article from Seeking Tech.

1. If you haven’t done so already, make sure you downloaded the latest patch for Switchback VR.

A member of the development team has addressed the graphical shortcomings of the game, which includes low-resolution visuals, textures pop-ins and long load times. A new patch should fix these problems. It should also add graphical enhancements such as better lighting, improved textures. Last but not least, the title update will introduce FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) and foveated rendering.

This new patch is slated to arrive by the end of June 2023. You can read more details about the update with this Reddit post.
