Sony is unsure what genre will be the biggest hit for virtual reality (VR) gaming, a company executive admitted, but said new experiences will be developed over the next two years for the PlayStation VR.
Released last month, the $399 PS VR is a headset that connects to existing PlayStation 4 (PS4) consoles or the company’s new beefed-up PS4 Pro which was released on Thursday.
Shawn Layden, president of Sony Interactive Entertainment America, said on Wednesday, that VR presents “new opportunities.”
“We are not exactly sure what’s going to be the hit genre for VR,” Layden said at a talk during the Web Summit technology conference in Lisbon.
“In 12 to 18 months, we are going to find things in VR that can only be experienced in VR.”
The PS VR came to market with 50 games available. But these are short experiences.
