Sony is betting it all of PlayStation VR and the overall growth of the VR market. These devices have been under development for a long time, waiting for the right time to hit the market and introduce a whole new kind of experience to the players.
According to Sony, time has come for VR and Sony is ready. Sony’s Shawn Layden said:
It’s a perfect storm now for VR technology. It’s a concept that’s been kicking around for quite some time. Some of us remember Virtual Boy way back in the day and a lot of different companies have had a go at virtual reality technology.
I think right now we have a combination of the necessary processing power and graphics power inside the machine. We have the display technology which can realize these images at a fidelity which looks natural, if you will. And we have the production technology to create a headset and a rig that is well-suited for the human head that won’t create a tiresome experience.
I think now is the time for VR; its time has come.
