Sony preparing for virtual reality on the PS4

Last Updated: September 4, 2013


Sony is apparently working on a virtual reality device for the Playstation 4 and has plans to introduce it in 2014.

The Oculus Rift VR headset has been doing well in the development community and also within a smaller group of gamers, and several sources have said to EuroGamer that Sony has plans to start competing with that device by introducing it’s own.

Some sort of prototype has apparently been demonstrated internally at Sony using the launch title racer DriveClub and players being able to look around inside the car cockpit. The VR device was also meant to be shown at Gamescom in Germany, but was pulled. Now it is not expected to be publicly revealed until some time next year.

“We don’t talk about that” was also literally all Sony boss Shuhei Yoshida would say when quizzed about the issue at Gamescom (and usually he’s so forthcoming, being the source of a lot of new information about the PS4, often via Twitter).

So to conclude, information is pretty slim at the moment, but if EuroGamer’s sources are correct then we expect to see lots more revealed about this exciting and potentially game changing device next year.
