Jim Ryan’s views on releasing the next-gen VR system for PlayStation 5

Ryan shared his views on releasing new VR systems to the market. He even added that the potential market for VR is very huge.

In a recent interview with the Japanese media outlet, Nikke, he said, “The next generation VR system is a very strategic opportunity for PS. We launched PSVR in 2016 and have had time to understand the VR experience for years. What I learned from VR is that the potential market is huge. I want to continue to provide a high gaming experience to keep the community entertained.”

Sony already announced that the new VR system is coming soon for PS5. However, it refused on calling it PSVR2, which opens up the possibility of the new VR system belonging to a new series.

The headset will feature upgrades to resolution and field of view and will use a simplified one-wire connection to the PS5. It feels more like a dream at the moment, but Sony has made it possible for the best controller. Therefore, it might have been a simpler task for the developer’s team than it seems.
