Oh dear, Sony is reportedly cutting funding for PS VR2 titles, with apparently only two titles currently in development internally

The PlayStation VR2 is barely a bit over a 12 months outdated, however it’s sounding like Sony is already winding down its funding in VR titles.

Numerous corporations have made a spread of makes an attempt at digital actuality, however it hasn’t actually taken off in the way in which some may need hoped. The Meta Quest is fairly profitable, however that is in a single half as a result of there is no annoying cables to take care of, but additionally as a result of it is comparatively reasonably priced (and you do not want an costly PC both). Sony continued its try and have its personal slice of the VR pie final 12 months with the discharge of the PS VR2, its follow-up VR headset designed particularly for the PS5. However, it would not appear to have gone all that properly, with a report earlier this 12 months claiming that Sony paused manufacturing on the headset as a result of it wanted to shift a backlog of them first.

Now, a brand new report from Android Central claims that Sony seems to be making cuts to funding for VR video games, in response to one supply that spoke with the outlet. The report paraphrased the supply, however distilled it to: “there will probably be only a few alternatives for VR sport growth at Sony going ahead.” One other supply apparently claimed solely two PS VR2 video games are at present in growth at Sony, which is not precisely confidence inspiring for the way forward for the headset.

Assuming the report is true, it is not precisely shocking. It did launch with a retail worth of a whopping $550, which is greater than the launch worth of the PS5 itself. Sony is lastly introducing the power to allow you to use your PS VR2 on PC, although that can price you an additional $60 anyway, so not significantly excellent both. Maybe it’s going to discover a new lease of life there, however with quite a few different PC VR headsets in the marketplace, and a PS5 with minimal VR video games, it begs the query of why you’d decide one up within the first place. Perhaps the lately revealed Behemoth will save the day.
