The PlayStation 4 May Support The Oculus Rift

The Oculus Rift has been heralded as the next generation of 3-D technology. This wearable headset features a 7-inch screen to create an unparalleled 3-D view: we've come a long way from the Virtual Boy.

Oculus Rift technology is built into the Unreal Engine 4 and is endorsed by some of the biggest names in the gaming industry: Tim Sweeney, Cliff Bleszinski and John Carmack just to name a few. Even though the hardware is still in the development phase, it looks very promising and may just change the way we play video games.

While the hardware is currently PC only, it may not be in the future if Sony Computer Entertainment head of Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida has anything to say about it.

Speaking to Engadget, Yoshida expresses his love for the Oculus Rift: "We've got a couple of the development kits, and I tried it out and I love it."

When asked if the PlayStation 4 supports the Oculus Rift, Yoshida commented that it doesn't. When asked if the PlayStation 4 will support the hardware in the future, the official word from Yoshida was "No Comment" with what onlookers say was a huge smile on his face.

The Oculus Rift is still a few years from being completed, but it looks like PlayStation 4 gamers have something very special to look forward to down the line if Yoshida has his way.
