PS4 Doesn't Support Oculus Rift Right Now, But It May Do in the Future

Smiles all around
Oculus Rift is the future – at least, that’s what we’re told. The virtual reality headset allows you to explore three-dimensional worlds by looking around you – there’s even a racy role-playing game in production for the hardware. And the functionality could yet be coming to the PlayStation 4, if you read into the smiles of Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida.
Asked about the innovation by Engadget at E3 2013 last week, the affable executive explained that he “loves” the technology. “We’ve got a couple of development kits,” he told the site, adding that the PS4 doesn’t support the headset at the moment. But will the system ever be compatible with the promising peripheral? “No comment,” he said, with a grin broader than a Cheshire cat.
Alright, so it’s about as far from a confirmation as you can get, but this definitely does sound like it would be up Sony’s alley. The company has dabbled with visors and headsets in the past, so some kind of co-branding partnership could work. Is this something that you’d be interested in?
