Sony’s VR headset is in the lead on the games front.
We’re getting a lot of competing virtual reality products this year, but any new piece of hardware is only ever as good ultimately as the software on it- see the PlayStation Vita for proof. And of the three headsets, the PlayStation VR is apparently the one that has the best lineup of games- or that’s what GameStop, the largest retailer of video games in the world, seems to believe, anyway.
“The more important thing will be the title count at launch,” GameStop CEO Paul Raines said at the ICR conference in Orlando. “I think that’s going to be big. And from what we can see at this point, Sony seems to have the strongest title count.”
At the very least, it appears as though Sony’s excellent relations with the development community, and their outreach efforts, cemented in part by how open they have been with courting game development for the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation Vita, are working in their favor here.
