The Witness comes with VR features for PC, not for PlayStation VR


Format exclusivity is about to go the VR route. In this particular case however you’ll see The Witness launching with features that’ll only work on PC VR headsets. This is not because of some sort of timed-exclusive or money that did the talking, but merely because the PlayStation VR was not even a thought in the early stages of the development of The Witness all those years ago, and adding the support for PS VR now is just about impossible according to the developers:

VR compatibility creator for The Witness, Jonathan Blow, had this to say in an interview:

[quote]Not on PlayStation VR simply because to support that you would’ve had to design the game from the outset. We started this game a long time ago way before PlayStation VR was a concept so for for this game. We might do some support for PC based UV because it’s easier to add that in later.[/quote]

Before PC gamers get too excited he did make note that this is not a primary VR experience:

[quote]The game is also not designed for VR. I think that the best VR experiences are actually designed for VR. But all that said, I think [ The Witness ] is a really nice world to wander around in VR, so I think they might like it.[/quote]

Married to a gamer and she kicks my ass at most shooters. If the game is enjoyable I'll play it, no matter the format.
