A couple of days back, few PlayStation VR game boxes appeared on e-commerce sites like Best Buy. All new VR-only games box art looks different to that of PS4. Near the top, it was declared as a ‘PlayStation VR game’, and below on the right-hand side there was a message saying, ‘You’ll need these’ with an image of the headset, PlayStation Camera, and PlayStation Move controllers. In response to this Sony has issued a statement to Eurogamer saying that the DualShock 4 will work with all PSVR games.
Now changing their statement, Sony has now said that some games will require PlayStation Move motion controller. In a reply, to Verge Sony said:
“Nearly all PlayStation VR titles will support DualShock 4 controllers, and several games will deliver an enhanced experience that further immerses gamers with the use of peripherals such as Move or the recently announced Aim controller. There will be a limited number of titles that require Move controllers.”
“All PlayStation VR titles will support DualShock 4 controllers. However some game experiences will be enhanced with the use of peripherals such as Move or the recently announced Aim controller. Images being shown of PSVR packaging on some websites are early mock ups and not representative of the finished packaging.”
Speaking of Aim controller, you’ll only require it when you wish to hold something that feels like a gun. If you’re not into that sort of thing, then you don’t need to purchase it. The reason Sony issued this statement is that some of the box-art showed that you may require a PlayStation Move controller to play games such as PlayStation VR Worlds and Hustle Kings. But all you need is a PlayStation Camera and a PS VR.
PlayStation VR releases on October 13 with some 50 launch titles including Batman: Arkham VR, EVE: Valkyrie, PlayStation VR Worlds, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, and RIGS. Presently, PS VR demos are available throughout North America over 300 different locations.
