Today marks day one at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) and Sony Interactive Entertainment has much in store with PlayStation VR for developers this year.
This conference is held every year and provides a variety of lectures, panels, discussions, and tutorials for the industry’s game developers and professionals. Sony invites those in attendance to meet with them and talk all about PlayStation at the GDC Expo, where they will house booths featuring many games and tools for developers to gain access to.
PlayStation VR was a big deal at GDC 2016 and this year, developers are able to access the latest tools available for the VR technology. This is not surprising, I only expect the technology and games planned for PlayStation VR to improve and increase throughout the future! The VR’s retail price point and month of release was unveiled at last years GDC, so it is possible to get news about advancements made in the past year.
