In an interview with the BBC, Hirai was asked about Sony's virtual reality strategy, to which the executive suggested that PlayStation VR had a key advantage in terms of development support.
He said: "Well I think that we have more than 200 developers signed up for the PlayStation VR program, who are working on probably a hundred or more titles that will play on PlayStation VR, is a testament to the kind of support that we're getting from the content creation community."
It is not clear how accurate Hirai's estimate is. In December, Sony's marketing team limited its showcase of PlayStation VR to a small batch of six games:
At E3 last year, some 20 PlayStation VR games were available to play on the show floor.
"We have a lot of good support, and it will be a great product coming out later this year," Hirai added.
Sony previously said a consumer PlayStation VR model will launch in the first half of 2016, though nothing more specific has been mentioned since.
With regards to the price, PlayStation executive Shuhei Yoshida previously said Sony's aim was to go "as low as possibly can be done."
