The virtual reality (VR) community is no closer to learning the release date and price of the PlayStation VR head-mounted display (HMD) for PlayStation 4, but it appears that Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) is making leaps and bounds with support for the kit. Shahid Kamal Ahmad, the company’s Director of Strategic Content, recently attended the Oculus Connect 2 developer conference in the Loews Hotel in Hollywood, California, and is now teasing that SCE is investing a ‘ton’ of money into some ‘amazing’ PlayStation VR projects.
Ahmad recently said as much on his Twitter account. “I have invested a *ton* of PlayStation’s money into some amazing PSVR projects of late, but the talent was found by Spencer, Ben and Guy,” Ahmad said. He also teased that, earlier this week, the company had signed 2 new PlayStation VR titles: “To make up for two new announcements from PlayStation Strategic Content partners, we also agreed to sign two new PSVR games today.” He didn’t offer any hints as to what these titles might be.
SCE has only revealed a handful of titles for PlayStation VR officially so far, including the likes of Guerrilla Cambridge’s RIGS: Mechanised Combat League, but plenty of third-party developers have noted that they are hoping to or are already working with the device. It will be releasing in the first half of 2016 with a 1080p OLED screen that’s capable of ‘reprojecting’ experiences at 120fps, even if the given software is only run at 60fps natively.
VRFocus will continue to follow PlayStation VR closely, reporting back with any further updates on its progress.
