PS VR games compatibility revealed – which games will work on a PlayStation 4?

Sony has confirmed that all Playstation VR titles will function on a standard PlayStation 4 console.

It was previously believed that some games for the virtual reality headset would only function on the PS4 Neo, or at least, perform better on the newer system.

Speaking at ACGHK 2016 (via PSU) Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida confirmed that all PlayStation VR titles will be compatible with standard PS4 models.

“All the PSVR (and future) titles will be playable on (normal) PS4,” said Yoshida. “We believe that everyone can enjoy the entertainment content on PSVR. Not just gamers, but a lot more people enjoy PSVR.”

This is reassuring news to those worried that their launch console from 2013 may not be capable of operating Sony’s upcoming VR headset.

While all PS VR titles will seemingly work on the original PS4, some of them will require additional peripherals such as the Playstation Move.

The Playstation Camera is also needed for the headset to work, which is definitely worth keeping in mind.

Playstation VR is scheduled to launch on October 13, 2016.

Sony is yet to confirm or reveal any release details for the PS4 Neo.
