Sony jumped into the Virtual Reality market with its PSVR headset and also developed titles exclusive to PSVR, however, while there were some notable exclusives for the Virtual Reality headset, PSVR didn’t get that many titles and Sony Interactive Entertainment is looking to change all that in 2018 with more PSVR Games.
According to Sony, the number of PSVR games will increase by 80% in 2018. According to the company, there are 150 PSVR games in the market and this number will increase to 280 by the end of this year.
This is not the first time Sony has said that the company will support PSVR with new experiences. Speaking during GameStop Expo 2017, Vice President of marketing for Sony, Asad Qizilbash, said that Sony has no intention of leaving the VR market behind and they will work to bring new experiences to PSVR.
According to Qizilbash, the company is “Super Focused” on PSVR and intends to double its efforts to bring “some really good games” to the virtual reality headset.
Also, Sony’s competitor Microsoft has also jumped into the market with Windows Mixed Reality. Microsoft announced that Windows Mixed Reality bundle will be available for $399. However, the system required for smoother experience starts at $499 which makes the buy-in into the Mixed Reality around $900.
Windows Mixed Reality offers both VR and AR experiences and is powered by Windows 10 and the Universal Windows Platform (UWP). The system is quite flexible as it can scale to a variety of hardware.
