PlayStation Say PSVR Will Change ‘Dramatically’


One of the few true areas of ‘oneupmanship’ that Sony has over Microsoft in the current console generation is that the PlayStation has a VR capable headset. Admittedly, the fact that the PS4 has outsold the Xbox One at something around 2:1 (and possibly greater) is also a good reason for Sony to be feeling happy with themselves.

Despite VR technology still being a somewhat shaky market, however, the PSVR headset has proven to be very popular. In a report via The Verge, however, PlayStation has made clear indications that it is not a fad and forms a very significant role in their future.

‘Dramatic Changes’

Shawn Layden, who is the current head of PlayStation has given a very strong endorsement of the future use of VR technology with their console. He has said: “you look at PSVR right now, none of us are going to be able to imagine what it will look like 10 years from now, but the change will be that dramatic. You can’t get to 5.0 until you do 1.0. It’s just the nature of the thing.”


To make the comparison, he suggested that people should consider the currently PVSR technology today as to something akin to the Nokia 3310. It’s popular, but in terms of technology represents only the start of what he feels can be a much more significant development of it in the future.

Personally, while I think VR does have a role to play in the future, I’m not certain how big this is. Owning an Oculus Rift, I must admit that it spends more time gathering dust than being played. I still, personally, see VR as a niche product. In 10 years time, however, I freely admit that could change quite significantly.

What do you think? Will VR gaming be a part of the future? – Let us know in the comments!
