Sony's set to hold a big PlayStation VR presentation at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco next week, with launch plans likely to be made official by the manufacturer. And speaking on the latest episode of the PlayStation Blogcast, president Shawn Layden has reiterated that, hinting that there's big news to come over the next week or so.

Speaking of the tech itself, the animated executive also stated that it's time for the medium to go mainstream. "It's a perfect storm now for virtual reality technology; it's a concept that's been kicking around for quite some time. I mean, some of us will remember Virtual Boy from back in the day – and a lot of different companies have had a go at VR technology. But right now we have a combination of the necessary processing power, the display technology, and we have the production technology to create a headset that's well suited for the human head."

The platform holder's presentation is scheduled for 15th March, and while there's no word on a livestream just yet, we'll be sure to bring you all of the headlines as they emerge. We'll also have some all-new eyes-on impressions with one of the peripheral's big games, which you may want to read. We can't say any more at this stage.
