PlayStation VR: ‘Hugely Positive’ Third-Party Response; Possibility of Including VR Segments in ‘Standard’ Games | Power Up Gaming
PlayStation VR has had a 'hugely positive' response from third-party developers, according to Sony, who expects to see many different uses of its technology. During a keynote presentation on the virtual reality headset by Simon Benson (pictured right), the director of SCE Worldwide Studios' Immersive Technology Group, along with SCEE London Studio's director Dave Ranyard (centre) and principal designer John Foster (left), the trio were questioned on how outside studios have taken to the tech. According to Simon Benson, the PS VR has been "unanimously well received" by developers in a "hugely positive response", and "people just fell in love with it". John Foster, who earlier guided the audience through several different PlayStation VR tech demos based around the theme of the 'London Heist', added: "We hear anecdotes of quite high-level executives in these third-party companies who are a little bit skeptical initially, and then they play a experience and it flips their view completely.
