Days Gone will be coming to the PC in the spring, but we won't play the new God of War this year, and the same goes for Gran Turismo 7. A lot of news came today from Jim Ryan, CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, but that's not all. He also said something about PSVR 2, although he had to bite his tongue to avoid revealing too much. Nevertheless, we learned a few important facts (via GQ).
Firstly, there's a noticeable technological advance between Sony's previous VR goggles and the current ones. How does it manifest itself? First of all, Ryan mentions that we'll only see one conductive cable instead of two. We would have enjoyed this a bit more if we didn't expect the next PlayStation VR headset to be wireless. At least now we know - it won't be.
Secondly, we'll know more about the new VR goggles in a few months, so these won't be on the market until 2022 at the earliest, though that date isn't 100 percent certain either. We also do not know in what volume the PSVR 2 will be released, and whether gamers have to prepare for shortage problems similar to those of PlayStation 5.
"Why not?," was Ryan's response to a question about why another version of PSVR is being made, and why SIE simply didn't chose to develop the current version of the hardware. Well, with this kind of reasoning there is nothing to discuss.
