"The next innovation from PlayStation that may well shape the future of games," said President of Sony's Worldwide Studios. ""Nothing elevates the level of immersion better than VR."

He continued, "VR has been a dream of many game creators ever since the computer game was invented. Many of us at PlayStation have dreamed about VR and what it could mean for the games we create."
