Sony’s 2016 PS4 DevCon Will Focus on PlayStation VR

PlayStation VR, the virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD) for PlayStation 4 from Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE), has taken a backseat at this 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada this week. In its place the Oculus Rift has launched pre-orders and the HTC Vive has revealed its second development kit, the Vive Pre. However, it looks like the kit will be a big focus at SCE’s upcoming developer conference for its popular console – which has now sold over 36.9 million units – in PS4 DevCon.

IGN is reporting that SCE is ‘building up an agenda that will focus on PlayStation VR’ at the event which takes place at the Loews Hotel in Hollywood, California from 10th – 11th May 2016. VR fans will know this to be the venue that Oculus VR uses for its developer conference, Oculus Connect, later on in the year. The company will plan to provide ‘essential information’ for those looking to work on the device.

PlayStation VR is set to release in the first half of this year, though a specific price and launch date are yet to be revealed. It’s quite possible, then, that the device could even be commercially available by the time PS4 DevCon rolls around.

For that latest updates on PlayStation VR, keep following VRFocus.

  1. May 11th? How is Sony missing the oportunity to announce along side all the other VR’s

    1. All others? As far as I know only Oculus have come out clean… Seems Valve and Sony are playing their cards safe.

    2. that is a DevCon, don’t expect it to talk to the consumer. I still believe that they will announce the release date and price in a Feb/Mar event!

  2. correction: the PS4 sold 35.9 million units, not 36.9.

    any way, a bit offtopic, but what was the ‘big breakthrough’ that Vive talked about? I only saw the Vive Pre, but nothing about the breakthrough! Is it not announced yet? or did I simply miss that news?

    1. The big reveal or breakthrough was simply the addition/inclusion of the pass-through camera on the front of the new Vive devkit2. Typical marketing b******* hype.
