Sony Reiterates that all PlayStation VR Games Will Support Dualshock 4

Sony has confirmed that all PSVR titles will indeed support the PS4’s Dualshock 4.

PSVR boxes have begun popping up at retailers, showcasing how Sony intends to market games for the platform. Rather than clarifying anything, the boxart has merely served to confuse some customers. In Europe, some boxes, like Hustle King’s VR, merely say the game is PlayStation VR Compatible. Others, like RIGs, appear to imply that the PlayStation VR headset and PS Move controllers are required to play the game. In the U.S., the Move controllers are conspicously absent. So the question is, can players use their Dualshock 4 controllers instead of the PS Move Controllers?

Sony, in a statement to Eurogamer, reiterated that all PlayStation VR games will be compatible with Dualshock 4. The addition of the PS Move on the box is to signify that the game can also be played with the motion controllers.

“All PlayStation VR titles will support DualShock 4 controllers. However some game experiences will be enhanced with the use of peripherals such as Move or the recently announced Aim controller.

“Images being shown of PSVR packaging on some websites are early mock ups and not representative of the finished packaging.”

PSVR is set to launch October 13 at $400, making it the cheapest of the three VR headsets (Oculus Rift is $600 and HTC Vive is $800). Games launching alongside side it include VR Worlds, RIGS, and Until Dawn: Rush of Blood.
