An interview with Masayasu Ito, executive vice president at Sony, over on Nikkei has raised hopes for PlayStation VR making its way to the PC – eventually.
As translated over on Eurogamer, Ito said while Sony has nothing to show ‘at the moment’:
“The possibility exists since the PlayStation 4 shares many of its parts with the PC. At the moment, we're concentrating on games so I have nothing to announce at this point, but we're looking to expand in a variety of areas.”
As pointed out by the brains at Digital Foundry, PSVR’s external hardware configuration would require additional configuration on the PC’s side – a piece of software, say – as well as functionality with the PS Camera and Move. So it’s not quite as simple as plugging one into a PC and hacking a driver or two.
For the time being this is a PlayStation-only project, but it could well end up being the mid-level option for those craving VR on PC.
It's not PSVR, but you can check out how Kirk's feeling after a week with Oculus Rift. Clue: a bit dizzy, but otherwise impressed.
