Battlezone creative director talks about the potential for PS VR’s success.
PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive…the VR market has become plenty crowded. With Oculus Rift releasing in March, how will the technology pan out in the coming months, especially for Sony since it will be the first console VR headset?
GamingBolt spoke to Rebellion co-founder and Battlezone creative director Jason Kingsley about his thoughts on the success of PlayStation VR especially with other devices on the horizon. He stated that, “I think the success of PlayStation VR is going to play a crucial part in taking VR to mainstream success. The fact that so many people already have the PS4 is critical for developers. The myth that are no “real” games yet for VR is well and truly being slain – we just need to get these games in players’ hands now!
“As for Oculus, we announced at Paris Games Week that we’re coming first to PlayStation VR, but Battlezone is confirmed for Oculus too, and this friendly rivalry between the VR platforms is helping drive the market forward. I think a lot of people were glad to hear that names like Sony and Facebook are heavily involved. Holo Lens is a different proposition as VR and AR are totally different experiences, and it feels much further out than the major VR headsets.”
As it stands, the market will be tested when actual triple-A VR titles release. But how will PlayStation VR? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
