Japanese headset virtual reality PlayStation VR was once just one of the many pilot projects R&D division of the company Sony. But today, it becomes distinctly clear that this device due to its low cost, ease of use and rich library of video games and applications has become the most popular in its market segment. Closest competitors Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, even if you add their sales together, are not even close with sales PS VR, because the latter sold around the world, more than 2 million units.
Today PlayStation VR allows owners of gaming consoles PlayStation 4 PlayStation 4 Pro to watch 360-degree videos to various online services, to enjoy stereoscopic 3D movies, visit places that you would never have ventured to go in person, for example, the city of Pripyat, near which the disaster occurred at Chernobyl, and much, much more. But the main function of the VR headset PS were and still are video games. After all, it is what all and was started initially. And in this respect Sony your fans fails.
To date, VR for the PlayStation was released more than 150 games in different genres. Yes, not all of them are masterpiece, and many resemble the demo or small rides, however, are found in this library and real hits like Resident Evil or VII, Skyrim VR. To stop the Japanese are not going to the end of 2018 plans to replenish the existing library of video games 130 new items that will expand it by about 80%. The impressive gain in a year, isn’t it?
At the beginning of December for PS VR has sold more than 12.2 million various video games, which is a very good outcome, given the freshness of the technology. Most people refer to virtual reality skeptical, as just not able to imagine how it can alter our perceptions about video games. A to the last making fun of her, being sure that there is anything special about it. But it passes quickly after they first put the headset on his head and is completely dissolved in the virtual worlds. Another thing are the cheap Chinese VR-headsets that use as their screens smartphones. Feel very mediocre and do not go to any comparison with more expensive devices from the Troika of market leaders.
I am glad that Sony is supporting is still a new market and an impressive invests money in the development of a new video game, not forgetting about their users. House studios hard at work on dozens of major projects for VR, each gamer will be able to find something interesting for yourself. On one side there remain major game publishers like Ubisoft, Bethesda, Square Enix, Bandai Namco and others. They have appreciated the potential of this technology and even managed to release some very good games for the PlayStation VR. In the future their number will only grow exponentially. And this, in our opinion, simply wonderful.
