Playstation VR Headset May Require a New Controller

admin   October 6, 2016   Comments Off on Playstation VR Headset May Require a New Controller

The Playstation VR headset will be released this October and if we were to see the pre-order sales, it will become a massive success.

There are a lot of VR games nowadays and some of them can be played on the PC. When the Playstation VR Headset will be released, it will have support for the current Playstation 4. When the Playstation Neo comes, and it will provide a better gaming experience for Playstation fans.

Anyway, during the E3 2016 event, Sony said that the Playstation VR will be using the Dualshock 4 as its default controller. This wowed the fans because then, they will not be going to dish out more money to enjoy Virtual Reality gaming on the Playstation 4 game console.

Unfortunately, that is not the case. In a recent statement by Sony, they said that some games are better played using their new AIM/Move controller.

Although most of the games will be supported by Dualshock 4 controllers, to be able to truly enjoy VR gaming on the Playstation 4 game console, you need to use the AIM controllers as they are better suited for VR gaming.

Now, what is the Playstation AIM controller? Well, the AIM controller looks like a gun-shaped controller with some lights to indicate in-game activity.

Although the Playstation AIM is great, it comes with a hefty price tag. The standalone Playstation AIM controller will cost you around $40-$60 dollars depending on the retailer.

In light of this news, I am pretty sure the demand for the Playstation AIM controllers will be high and because of this, suppliers might up the price.

This is especially evident back when Nvidia’s new 1080 cards were released. The suggested retail price of this card was $599 but has since been jacked up to $850. Of course, people do not want to wait and a lot of people actually bought the card despite the inflated price.

We might be seeing a similar trend with the Playstation AIM controllers. There is a Playstation VR headset bundle that comes with two Playstation AIM controllers but that has since been removed because of the massive influx of orders.

So, if you want to buy an AIM controller, better do it now since the supply is still pretty much okay.

A lot of people might be put off by this news but I think this bodes well for the company and also for the gamers.

VR gaming is still quite expensive because the technology is still relatively new. But, as with all other things, the prices will drop in the future and the technology will be vastly improved.

Not only that but if you do buy a Playstation AIM controller, you will be improving your virtual reality gaming manifold.

The Playstation 4 VR headset is available via pre-order on Sony’s website. If you want to bring Virtual Reality gaming to the PS4 game console, then be sure to pre-order the headset as it is in limited supply.
