When a gaming company like Sony announces new hardware, the question is always whether or not they will support it with content. It looks like we won’t have to worry about Playstation VR though. Sony has stated that there are roughly “100 or more” VR games that are currently in development for the hardware.
Through an interview with BBC, CEO Kaz Hirai continued that there are more than 200 developers who have already signed up for Sony’s Playstation VR Program. We agree with Hirai that these numbers are a “testament to the kind of support that we’re [Sony] getting from the content creation community on Playstation VR.”
In the interview, Hirai also explains that this advancement of virtual reality will not just be restricted to video games.
“Once we have a lot of people who are really into virtual reality through games I think then we’ll be able to expand beyond gaming, especially because we have a lot of content that we create ourselves at Sony Pictures Entertainment,” says Hirai.
Even as we get closer to the release of Playstation VR in 2016, we still do not know the price-point it will launch at. With Oculus Rift preorders being $599, we hope that Sony will price it competitively.
