PlayStation VR Allows for “Amazing Experiences” With Limited Resources
Shuhei Yoshida says VR tech is “so easy, it’s almost unfair.”
PlayStation VR, formerly Project Morpheus, is still without a release date or official price but SCE Worldwide Studios’ Shuhei Yoshida is already talking up how VR technology will be a big game changer for all developers.
Speaking to Stuff at this year’s Tokyo Game Show, Yoshida emphasized on the PlayStation VR when he said, “Using VR tech, it’s so easy, it’s almost unfair. It’s like an ultimate weapon. I think it’s going to be a hugely powerful weapon for game developers to create new and exciting experiences for consumers.”
Even smaller developers with limited resources can create amazing games, provided the concept is compelling enough. “You can create totally amazing experiences with very very limited resources if you have the right idea. One of the examples is a soccer game called Headmaster. Its developed by a small indie developer, but everybody still really enjoyed it.”
PlayStation VR is expected to release in early 2016 and could be priced around the same as a new console. Stay tuned for more information on it in the coming weeks.
