‘Our customers are aware of VR, and anticipating it.’

Exactly how much Sony is expecting its PlayStation VR to sell is anybody’s guess- previously, they have made some statements to the effect of not expecting the headset to sell a whole lot, at least not right out of the gate. But the amount of time and development talent that they are dedicating to the platform seems to indicate that Sony has some hopes from the PlayStation VR.

Richard Marks, director of Sony PlayStation’s Magic Labs research division, discussed the headset’s potential sales performance in a recent interview with Fortune. “Our customers are already very aware of VR and are anticipating it,” Marks said. “Once the PlayStation VR goes out on the market, they’ll see so many in people’s homes that it will create this snowball effect.”

Of course, all of this assumes that VR will be accepted by the masses at all. Right now, all indications are that it goes the way of stereoscopic 3D- remember that? Sony’s biggest test, as well as Oculus’, HTC’s, and Samsung’s, will be selling the average consumer on the idea of consuming entertainment media with a funky headset on their heads, cutting them off from the larger world.

    Well I’m anticipating the severe physiological and psychological issues to snowball.
    Wait till a bunch of kids get addicted to it and keel over due to lack of sleep/food/water.

    It’s coming.

    I did a quick scan of IGN and Gamespot forums and found around 1% positive comments. This is going to bomb like ISIS.

      Xgimp mathematics in play.

    • Truth™

      720P, broke down on stage, launch games are already being embarrassed by the Samsung Gear VR and people playing EVE Valkyrie on both saying there’s a significant difference and the PSVR version looks like a PS2 game

      Amuse us more Rscottycuck 🙂

    • Psionicinversion

      yeah ive heard that… have you seen the Robinson Journey from crytek thats on Oculus and VR?? funny how thers no controls showing because can guarantee thats the PC version. PSVR to embarassing to show

    • Truth™

      People who tried EVE Valkyrie on both have said the PC version looks great while the PS4 version looks like a low rez mobile game.

      But then rscottycuck has given up replying because he knows this is a disaster 🙂

    • kee1haul

      Actually I did look, and that was my observation. Read into that what you want, but most people are not convinced about ANY vr right now.

    • Mr Xrat

      Speak for yourself.

    • Truth™

      Rscottycuck thinking the superior Vive and OR will be representative of the underpowered PSVR. How embarrassing just like your claims about the “Full RGB means resolution doesn’t matter” you claimed last night when resolution is one of the most important aspects. Both Vive and OR will be significantly better.

      But then a console that can’t do steroscopic rendering above 720P was always going to be a joke at VR 🙂

  • Mr Xrat

    Can’t wait for Xgimps to beg Phil for proper VR in a year.

    • Truth™

      Can’t wait to see Sonycucks beg Shu for refunds on the 720P PSVR next Spring 🙂

      If Xgimps want a proper VR. They can use Vive or Rift

    • Psionicinversion

      It will snow ball and turn into an avalanche destroying and burying all sony losers hopes and dreams
