PlayStation VR 'out later this year,' says Hirai; developers working on over 100 games


Sony's chief executive has told the BBC that developers are working on 100 or more titles for its forthcoming virtual reality headset.

Kaz Hirai told the BBC's Rory Cellan-Jones that the PlayStation VR had attracted a lot of support from third-party games developers, although surprisingly Sony opted not to price or date the device at CES. 

Hirai did add that the PlayStation VR is 'coming out later this year,' so that perhaps suggests that it won't be soon.

Perhaps Sony is giving Oculus Rift some time in the spotlight first?

more than 100 titles in dev, isn't that more than the number of non-vr titles in dev atm? I don't see VR sticking tbh. It would have to be an affordable price, have a decent line-up and compatibility and not knock people sick. How many people complained at the 3DS when that come out saying the 3D was making them sick so they couldn't' do it for long periods... Personally I always use the 3D mode on my 3DS and have no issues - I love it, but I can see a lot of people getting 'ill' from long periods of use

I don't think you can compare the Nintendo 3DS to VR. The 3DS made me sick because it was/is a piss poor console.

3d does knock me a bit to be honest. Used the glasses on our Tv about 4 times in the year we have owned it. Looks good but makes me tired and eyes tender.

It's the same concept though - giving you a depth perception of the game/surroundings. True - Early 3DS' you had to look straight at it - not in later models which have the eye tracking camera so you can look from nay angle and get the 3D - but like Philip said - I have a 3D tv and some people don't like that and the 3D cinema - people don't like that after a while. I see the HTC and Sony as a rushed job to compete with the Rift. VR has been tried in the past and failed - I feel too many companies may just go for the '3D effect' rather than full VR - unless they are games where you usually play 1st person anyway - as most of the demos shown at E3 were just 3rd person so technically just a 3D game. Will wait for reviews before even thinking about any of these headsets, I just don't understand the comment on over 100 games currently being developed for it - I think that number is highly exaggerated unless Sony has told devs they have to support VR in some form - like how every 3DS game can be played in 2D but MUST have 3D in there as well
