Oculus Rift Is More Powerful Than PlayStation VR, Admits Sony
Sony’s PlayStation VR will also be releasing very soon, although we don’t have an exact release date. The debate on performance of different VR headsets was going on, and recently, PlayStation’s executive vice president Masayasu Ito said that their VR is not that powerful as compared with Oculus Rift’s.
The word came during his interview with the Polygon, where he said that,
“If you just talk about the high-end quality, yes, I would admit that Oculus may have better VR. However, it requires a very expensive and very fast PC. The biggest advantage for Sony is our headset works with PS4. It’s more for everyday use, so it has to be easy to use and it has to be affordable. This is not for the person who uses a high-end PC. It’s for the mass market.”
Oculus Rift is set for release this month, with a price tag of $600, designed for PC gaming. The recommended system requirements for Oculus Rift were revealed previously and is also available for pre-order.
Sony is hosting a PlayStation VR event this month, on March 15th where me are expected to hear the final release date and launch price of their headset. Earlier this week, Sony said that the their headset plays at 120 fps, with ‘no jittering at all’. We expect to hear more from Sony during in their forthcoming event.
