If you asked me four years ago what I thought about virtual reality (VR), I would probably tell you that “this business is going to be top”. Now it cuts to 2020, when the vast majority of companies (Google and Samsung among them) that bet on this niche are leaving the scene. And Sony is showing signs that it will be the next one to jump off that boat, or at least take it easy on new investments in technology.
In an interview with the newspaper The Washington Post, Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan said that virtual reality is still in the company’s plans, but that it will take years to actually become an entertainment product. The executive was also categorical in declaring that, with regard to VR, “there are no immediate or long-term plans”.
“I think we are more than a few minutes away from the future of virtual reality. PlayStation believes in VR. Sony believes in VR, and we definitely believe that, at some point in the future, technology will represent a significant component of interactive entertainment. Will it be this year? No. Will it be next year? No. But will it be at some point? That’s what we believe in, ”he said.
This, however, does not mean that Sony will leave this market for good. The PlayStation VR will continue to be sold, and is expected to gain compatibility with other titles. The manufacturer is even offering headset owners a camera adapter to use on the PlayStation 5, which will be compatible with the accessory. The entire process is free – you only need to enter this website and enter the serial number on the back of the PSVR processor – but it is not yet available in Brazil. Yeah.
All of these indications also suggest that we will not see a new PSVR anytime soon. Software upgrades are likely to remain in Sony’s sights, but next generation hardware may be around a few years from now.
In Brazil, the PlayStation VR is sold on average for R $ 2,330.
