With 2016 being a huge year for PlayStation VR, we’ve been given more news by Kaz Hirai (Chief Executive of Media at Sony) that over 100 games are under development along with 200+ developers! Although his statement may or may not be completely accurate, I’ll be taking what he said with a pinch of salt.
Kaz Hirai said during an interview with the BBC: “Well I think that we have more than 200 developers signed up for the PlayStation VR program, who are working on probably a hundred or more titles that will play on PlayStation VR, is a testament to the kind of support that we’re getting from the content creation community.”

PlayStation VR is said to be released in the first half of 2016 so there’s not long to go! Personally I’d wait until bugs and other issues that may occur to be fixed and also to see what games are actually going to be released. Will they be good or bad? Would the VR set break easily or is it durable enough? And also, the price. How much will this thing cost? I’ve been hearing rumours of it being at least $400 (£275) or even more, which is insane because it requires a PS4 to run, therefore setting you back another $363 (£250) or so and that’s not even including the price of any games. This is one of the reasons why I definitely won’t be getting my hands on a PlayStation VR set anytime soon.
Another reason why I think this whole VR thing isn’t such a great idea is because I think it’s too soon for consoles. The PS4 requires additional power to even run VR, which is why I think it should wait and even beastly gaming PCs will have a hard time running VR. Because of this, things have to be sacrificed so the games can actually run at a decent frame rate. These consoles just aren’t ready yet.
What do you think of the PlayStation VR and will you be the owner of one this year? Let me know in the comments.
