Sony admits PlayStation VR is inferior to Oculus Rift

Sony is preparing to launch its PlayStation VR headset later this year and folks are interested in hearing how much the product will cost. One thing is for sure though, Sony is not going after direct competition with the Oculus Rift as it admitted to the press that its PlayStation VR is more a mass market product that will not offer the same kind of high-end quality as the Rift. Instead, Sony stresses that its VR product works on the many millions of PS4 consoles out there, whereas the Oculus Rift requires an expensive PC with enough graphical horsepower.
We already know that Sony’s headset is fairly tame in terms of specifications, with a lower 1080p resolution display and smaller field of view though it does have the bonus of a 120Hz refresh rate. The Rift on the other hand has a much higher resolution 2K per eye OLED display, along with some better sensors.

“If you just talk about the high-end quality, yes, I would admit that Oculus may have better VR. However, it requires a very expensive and very fast PC. The biggest advantage for Sony is our headset works with PS4. It’s more for everyday use, so it has to be easy to use and it has to be affordable. This is not for the person who uses a high-end PC. It’s for the mass market.”
