PlayStation VR may eventually offer PC suport

A senior figure at PlayStation has said the firm’s new PSVR headset could one day be compatible with PC.

Miyasoto Ito, SCE’s senior VP told Nikkei (translated by PC Gamer), that the shared components between PC and PS4 could enable Sony to expand the experience beyond the console.

While no announcements are imminent, Miyasoto suggested there’s likely to be an expansion at some point in the future.

He reportedly said: “Since PlayStation 4 shares a lot of its components with PCs, the possibility is there.

“At the moment we are focused on games and we are not ready to make any announcements at this stage, but I’d say there will be an expansion into various fields.”
