Sony Promises VR Entertainment Content At Tokyo Game Show


Sony.'s video game division is readying games but also music, movies and other kinds of entertainment for its Virtual Reality headgear, set to go on sale next month.

Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Asia President Atsushi Morita appeared at a Tokyo event Tuesday, ahead of the Tokyo Game Show annual exhibition opening later this week. The latest in video games, including VR, will be on display at the show at Makuhari Messe in the Tokyo suburb of Chiba.

One of the VR experiences being promised is a music video that's a collaboration between the "Biohazard" horror game, called "Resident Evil" in the U.S., from Japanese game maker Capcom, and L'Arc-en-Ciel, a Japanese rock band, that takes advantage of VR technology's illusion of 3-D and 360-degree surround imagery.

The PlayStation VR headgear device, going on sale next month for about $400, less than rival VR headsets. Oculus Rift's goes for about $600, and HTC Vive's for $800.

Another VR shown at Tokyo-based Sony's event was the "Anywhere VR," which delivers to headset wearers a relaxing scene, such as a beach or a star-studded sky, even in their living rooms, while they take care of smartphone chores in VR.

Morita said the PlayStation VR will also be used to show live-theater performances, tours of historical sites and karaoke video.

Seperately, with Final Fantasy XV game coming later this year, Sony announced a special edition PlayStation 4 - the new slimmer version - to tie into the game's release. This is the first limited edition variant of the new PS4 we've seen.

It's called the "Luna Edition." The system will be released for 39,980 yen (about $393) on November 29th, the same day as Final Fantasy XV. The package includes the game, a rental of the spin-off CG movie Kingsglaive, and an original PS4 system theme.

Sony also announced a couple of new colors for the PS Vita handheld system too. Japan will get the Metallic Red and Silver variants on December 1st.
