Sony Is Open To Bringing PlayStation VR To PCs

The Playstation VR is coming in just a few months, and most of us at PlayStation Insider have already pre-ordered the system and have been eagerly awaiting games. Well, thanks to the Amazon update this morning we have not only the list of games around launch, but how much an average PSVR game will cost us as well.

If the Xbox One OS is stored on the flash side of things, we could see not only the dashboard respond quicker, but operations like snapping apps would also see markedly improved performance (it is currently dismally slow with the standard hard drive, at least for me). Combine the SSHD with the new upcoming OS, and current Xbox One users will likely see a world of difference in dashboard and OS performance.playstation vr specs vs oculus

This category pretty much explains itself. We’re talking about VR apps, or things that you can do with your VR goggles. Well, when it comes down to Google Cardboard and Samsung Gear VR, there is already a plethora of apps, games, VR experiences and many other interesting things to do. That, ladies and gentlemen, is VR, and you better get used to it because you’ll be seeing a lot of it in the near future.

The GNOG universe looks like it came straight out of Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. It’s a psychedelic puzzle game that has you inspecting monster heads to uncover what makes them tick. Each head is unique with themes that range from yellow submarines to neon light-flashing boom boxes, which can be flipped between a face side and an opposite micro-world side (like the old Polly Pocket and Mighty Max toys from the 90s). You’ll need to flip between the face and the micro-world, interact with them, and see how your changes affect the opposing side. GNOG is more exploration than puzzle solving, allowing you to play with the heads and just see how they react.

According to a report from SuperData , a total of 6 million Americans are preparing to purchase PS4 ‘s virtual reality headset. While this is a very encouraging number for Sony, the research firm goes on to doubt the inventory that will be available at launch. Much like was the case with the PS4 when it launched, PSVR will most likely be in short supply this October.

Sony has already said that it’s pricing PlayStation VR as a new gaming platform, even if it’s not limited to gaming content. And perhaps that’s exactly what Sony wants this to be. The headset we’ve seen so far might be limited to use with the PS4, but it also might not. And with a patent like this in the open, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Sony release PlayStation VR in ongoing iterations and have it become something completely different than the PS4. It certainly wouldn’t be limited by the hardware’s inability to render at resolutions higher than 1080p.
