Yoshida went on to say that developers, even those on small budgets, can find success with VR, provided they can come up with a compelling enough idea.
“You can create totally amazing experiences with very very limited resources if you have the right idea," he explained. "One of the examples is a soccer game called Headmaster. Its developed by a small indie developer, but everybody still really enjoyed it."
PlayStation VR will launch in the first half of 2016. Sony will have at least 10 titles available at launch, but they have not been announced. Concerning cost, PlayStation boss Andrew House recently said the device will be priced similarly to a new console.
