It’s no secret that Sony has been working on the PlayStation VR headset for some time now.
It’s been one of the biggest questions on the minds of gamers for months now.
Today, we’re getting the first details on when we can expect to see the headset officially available.
While Sony has said that the PlayStation 4 will ship with VR support in March, the company has been tight-lipped about exactly what kind of support it’s providing to its consumer platform.
That’s because, at the time of writing, we have no idea when the VR support for PlayStation VR will arrive.
In our previous update, we shared the latest on Sony’s VR plans and how they will be delivered to consumers.
In this update, however, we are starting to learn more about Sony’s plans.
We’ve been given the opportunity to ask a few questions of Sony’s head of VR Nate Mitchell, who was previously at Sony, but the company won’t be revealing much about its VR plans in the near future.
The PlayStation VR launch has been shrouded in mystery for quite some time.
Sony hasn’t announced a specific launch date, nor has it revealed when VR will become standard for PlayStation 4.
We do know that VR support will arrive at some point in March for all PlayStation 4 owners.
While VR support is coming to PlayStation 4, it’s not expected to be in the middle of March, according to Mitchell.
It will arrive in early April, but Mitchell wouldn’t provide a specific time frame.
Instead, Sony’s new head of virtual reality Nate Mitchell says the company will deliver VR support to PlayStation VR users as soon as possible.
While we don’t have any exact details about when VR support arrives for PSVR, Mitchell has said it will arrive “in early April.”
That said, Mitchell hasn’t said when PlayStation VR owners will receive the headset.
If Mitchell can’t confirm a specific date, it might be months before VR headsets hit shelves.
The PSVR is designed to support a wide range of hardware, from PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR to Xbox One and Windows 10.
The headset is powered by a quad-core ARM processor, a GPU, and 4K video decoding.
The PSVR also comes with an integrated camera and microphone.
The Oculus Rift is a virtual reality headset that uses a PlayStation Move motion sensor and headset-mounted tracking cameras to deliver the virtual world to users.
Oculus Rift has been the focus of plenty of hype, but Microsoft has said the headset won’t launch until after Christmas, at least in the US.
The Oculus Rift and PlayStation Rift are two of the few VR headsets that haven’t been available to consumers yet.
The Xbox One version of the Oculus VR headset is scheduled to launch this fall.
