  • News Move Over Power Glove! Sony Patents PlayStation VR Mittens

    Everything else is child's play

    They do say that everything comes full-circle eventually, so if PlayStation VR is merely a next-gen Virtual Boy, then we suppose that it makes sense for Sony to be planning a Power Glove alternative, too. A patent filed by SCEA shortly after the announcement of Project Morpheus in 2014 suggests that the company's at...

  • News PlayStation VR's Price and Release Date May Be Incoming

    Save the date

    With both the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive already (extortionately) priced, all eyes are on Sony and its PlayStation VR headset. Fortunately, we may be learning a little more about the accessory imminently, as the platform holder is inviting press to a special event on 15th March in San Francisco.

    But will it be?

    Virtual insanity

    To say there's no scepticism surrounding PlayStation VR would be a lie. Every time we write about the peripheral – or virtual reality in general – it comes under some criticism from both readers and the wider web alike. But speaking with Polygon, ex-Metal Gear Solid maker Hideo Kojima has suggested that the cynicism is misplaced...

  • News PlayStation VR May Be Launching Later in the Year Now

    GameStop lets slip fall release window

    PlayStation VR is still officially due out before July, but we don't think that anyone believes that at this juncture. Our understanding is that the hardware's finished, but Sony's waiting for the software to catch up. And perhaps recognising that developers are still a fair few months off, it may have delayed...
