PS4 Update 3.50 Might Have Made PlayStation VR Related Backend Changes Already

There already are rumors that PlayStation VR might get a price tag this month, suggesting that things are about to get hot for Sony’s own virtual reality adventures. Now, we have picked up some more information suggesting they might have already started preparing the PlayStation 4 for the headset thanks to the PS4 update 3.50 that came out a couple of days ago.

It is a fact that there are a number of unannounced features included in the firmware update apart from those that have been detailed by Sony Computer Entertainment. We have a list but surely there are a number of changes that could have been made under the hood.

So when we stumbled upon a “VR Headset Safety Notice” and guidelines dedicated to the PlayStation VR inside the Health and Safety Section of the new update, it immediately brought our attention to the fact that Sony has probably made a number of virtual reality related changes to the console too.

It would make sense not to let us know about them yet as well because most probably they are making some backend changes that will prepare the console for the launch of their VR headset. And since it takes time to get things smoothed out, the PS4 update 3.50 might not be such a bad option to start rolling out the changes.

As of the notice and guidelines are concerned, you can check them out below:

VR Headset Safety Notice: Before using, read the health and safety warnings in the VR headset instruction manual. Carefully follow all instructions for setup and use.

  • The VR Headset is not for use by children under age 12.
  • Review surroundings and clear obstacles before use. Take steps to prevent pets, children, or other obstacles entering the area during use.
  • Some people may experience motion sickness, nausea, disorientation, blurred vision or another discomfort while viewing virtual reality content. If you experience any of these symptoms, stop using immediately and remove the VR headset.

How long before the PlayStation VR finally stops staying backstage then?
