GDC begins next week and Sony is holding a special panel on March 18 with SCEA R&D Senior Director Richard Marks, SCEA R&D Senior Software Engineer Anton Mikhailov, and SCE Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida all featured. The panel is called “Driving the Future of Innovation,” and it will begin at 5:45 PM PT.
It is widely rumored that Sony will announce their VR headset at this panel.
According to developers who spoke with Edge, this technology is superior to that of the Oculus Rift, the current VR leader. They believe Sony will display some sort of VR software at the panel, whether it’s a game or just a tech demo.
So far, the Oculus Rift technology has suffered from some setbacks, with one of the major ones being the motion sickness many players experience when they use the technology. Can Sony overcome that? Give us your thoughts and predictions, and we’ll keep you updated.
