It’s Possible to Use PlayStation VR on Xbox One, Wii U

That’s right, it’s actually possible to plug the PlayStation VR into the Xbox One, Wii U and other devices and use some of its features.

Japanese twitter user chirnoice used his/her headset to view Splatoon on Wii U, while Ars Technica hooked theirs up to an Xbox One and a PC, stating that doing so with the latter shows the Windows desktop.

Various reddit users have also tested the headset on the Xbox One and other devices with an HDMI output, getting varying results. Apparently, a major drawback is the lack of sound, though Polygon said plugging headphones into the Xbox One controller addresses that problem but doesn’t deliver the 360-degree audio that you get with PSVR-capable games.

Obviously, the PlayStation VR doesn’t work as well on other console as it does on the PlayStation 4. In fact, it just triggers Cinematic Mode, which makes whatever you’re viewing through the headset appear as a cinema-sized screen.

In other words, not much to see, but worth the experiment …

PSVR Will Sell 750K Units in 2017, Fewer Than Expected

Sony PS4 VR Headset

One analyst that expected Sony to sell a around 2.6 million units of the PlayStation VR in 2016 now estimates that the company won’t even sell half of that.

Revised 2016 sales forecast for the PSVR by SuperData Research, a market research and analytics firm, reveals that Sony’s virtual reality headset will shift fewer than 750,000 units by the end of the year, a far cry from earlier estimates.

SuperData conceded to its overestimated of the PlayStation VR’s performance at retail, adjusting its forecast accordingly. Its report stated that “notably fewer [PSVR] units sold than expected due to a relatively fragmented title line-up and modest marketing effort.”

The company, however, remains confident that the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift will sell 420,108 and 355,088 units, respectively.

Resident Evil 7 is Written by a Westerner For First Time Ever

Published

Resident Evil 7

Resident Evil 7 is written by non-other than Richard Pearsey, the creative mind behind the Spec-Ops: The Line and F.E.A.R.’s stories.

Having confirmed his involvement in the game on his Twitter account, Pearsey is the first Westerner to be lead writer for a major Resident Evil game. He tweeted:

“This has been quite a trip. Very glad to have played a part.”

Most recently, he was the writer and narrative designer iOS game 1979 Revolution, which was banned in Iran for its rather ‘touchy’ subject matter (research the ‘Iranian Revolution’).

It’ll be interesting to see what a western perspective brings to the Resident Evil series, which many gamers believe has lost touch with it survival horror roots.

Do you think the franchise is in good hands? What changes do you want to see made?

Resident Evil 7 releases on January 24, 2017, for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It is fully compatible with PlayStation VR.
