AR/VR Weekly | April 17, 2019
Sony gave virtual reality a boost Tuesday when it confirmed that VR would indeed be a part of the next generation of Sony PlayStation home gaming consoles.
In an interview with Wired, Sony’s Mark Cerny talked about the next PlayStation console. It’s the first time that Sony has said anything about this device, and we learned some enticing details about this successor to the PlayStation 4 — including its backward compatibility with PlayStation VR.
Now, this doesn’t confirm that Sony is working on a successor to PSVR (at least, not yet). But it does show PSVR game developers that Sony will continue to support this platform.
PSVR is virtual reality’s most successful platform. It’s sold more than 4.2 million headsets so far, and this is thanks to the wide audience a home gaming system reaches and the ease that comes with just plugging devices into a console. It helps that PSVR has a great library and has the support of one of gaming’s biggest brands behind it as well.
I’m happy PSVR is going to be relevant going forward. Here’s to enjoying another generation of VR in your living room.
