Sony look to be planning a VR headset of their own for PS4, to be compatible with games such as DriveClub and rival the growing popularity found with the Oculus Rift headset.
Eurogamer are reporting that the headset will be revealed next year, and has been demonstrated internally, allowing players to look around the cockpit of their car in DriveClub, which is developed by Evolution Studios.
Evolution includes the Worldwide Studios Stereoscopic 3D team, which has previously worked on 3D game development and has remained relatively quiet since Sony’s 3D push never really kicked off.
Quite interestingly, it is also being reported that they were aiming to show the headset at their Gamescom conference but it was pulled, perhaps in favour of more development time and a release next year.
It’ll be interesting to see whether this takes off or is left behind like 3D and Move support arguably were with the PS3.
