PlayStation VR Release Date Announced, Developer Support is Insane
PlayStation VR has been in the news for a long time and we already knew it is releasing on October. At Sony’s E3 2016 press conference, the company confirmed that PSVR is releasing on October 13.
Those interested to get their hands on the device would be able to do so for $399. VR is a growing market and Sony is right in the middle of it with its PlayStation VR. The best part of PSVR is the developer support it is getting.
Big publishers are releasing their mainstream AAA titles for PlayStation VR. At E3 Sony confirmed that by the end of the year 50 games will release for PSVR. EA DICE is bringing an X-Wing mission for Star Wars Battlefront VR that is exclusive to PSVR.
There is a new Batman Arkham game in development for PlayStation VR. Mark Hamill is back as The Joker in the new game. But probably the biggest highlight of Sony PSVR section of E3 presser was Resident Evil 7. The game is fully playable in PlayStation VR.
Sony is betting big on PlayStation VR and with its massive PS4 install base, Sony should be able to finally bring VR to the limelight in the console gaming scene.
Not only does PSVR has developer support, it is without any direct competition in the market. Its rivals Oculus Rift and HTC VIVE are PC compatible only and are much more expensive when you consider the all-in cost of the device itself and a PC capable of running it.
Sony is considering PC compatibility with PlayStation VR. Nothing is finalized yet but if Sony manages to achieve this, Oculus Rift and HTC VIVE makers would be losing some sleep.
PlayStation VR release date is just a few months away so be ready to experience the world of VR gaming.
