To say that Sony are among the biggest proponents of virtual reality in the games industry would not be an exaggeration. They’ve made impressive strides with PSVR over the last couple of years, and it’s clear that this is an area that they’re going to continue investing in. But even Sony understands one thing- that VR is still in its infancy, and that those working in this space have a lot to learn.

Recently, speaking in an interview with GameWatch (via Wccftech), SIE Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida got to speaking about VR, and said that though this is an impressive piece of technology that has shown great promise, it’s still got lots to learn. According to Yoshida, as the base hardware of consoles improves, so too will the VR experience that goes alongside it.

“I think that the hardware experience will improve the VR experience,” said Yoshida. “VR has a lot to learn even at companies that have been making games for a long time. I realized that as soon as I started VR. I had to learn a lot because I couldn’t do it with normal TV games. But we had to have many guidelines for danger, but with the developer’s ingenuity, we were able to see how to do it, and VR makes us think about what the human abilities are, and after three years such knowledge is growing.”

It’s pretty clear at this point that Sony isn’t done with VR just yet, and will be focusing on it with the PS5 as well. They’ve confirmed that the PS5 will indeed support PSVR– though that doesn’t mean we should expect to see a PSVR 2 any time soon.
