Sony has shared some new information on the PlayStation VR headset, launching this October. Sony has clarified that every title released for PlayStation VR will be compatible with their DualShock 4 controller, and that the Move and Aim controllers are optional, but will enhance game experiences. The announcement comes after some confusion with boxart showing PlayStation Move as a required accessory.
The statement to Eurogamer, said: “All PlayStation VR titles will support DualShock 4 controllers. However some game experiences will be enhanced with the use of peripherals such as Move or the recently announced Aim controller. Images being shown of PSVR packaging on some websites are early mock ups and not representative of the finished packaging.”
Two main types of labelling will be used for PlayStation VR games:
- PlayStation VR Required – for PSVR exclusive games that require the PlayStation VR headset.
- PlayStation VR Compatible – for games that support VR, but as an optional extra (i.e. a separate mode or setting)
