Virtual Reality headsets have made immense strides in recent years towards becoming an actual consumer item, Sony’s VR set among the strongest contenders. With PlayStation VR, previously known as Project Morpheus, coming to stores in the first half of 2016, Shuhei Yoshida spoke out about his views on the new gaming medium.
Speaking at the Tokyo Games Show with Stuff, the PlayStation boss said, “Every game developer tries to create something new, amazing, and innovative to wow people.” With this in mind, “Using VR tech, it’s so easy, it’s almost unfair. It’s like an ultimate weapon.”
“I think it’s going to be a hugely powerful weapon for game developers to create new and exciting experiences for consumers,” Yoshida explained, “Because VR is such a new media, you can create totally amazing experiences with very very limited resources if you have the right idea.”
While there is no firm release date or price for Sony’s VR headset, in a recent interview, PlayStation Executive Andrew House stated PlayStation VR would be priced as a new console.
