Rather, Layden contrasted amusement advancement’s future with its past, recognizing the sensational development in fields like virtual reality, augmented reality, e-sports, and even mobile gaming. That sort of sensational development will just proceed, and that is something Layden accepts will influence PSVR.
He utilized the development in cell phone advancement, similar to the various Android and Apple gadgets that have been discharged since the first iPhone 3G in 2008, for instance to inspect what could happen to the PSVR as VR tech keeps on advancing.
“By the same token, you look at PSVR right now, none of us are going to be able to imagine what it will look like 10 years from now, but the change will be that dramatic,” Layden said. “You can’t get to 5.0 until you do 1.0. It’s just the nature of the thing.”

All things considered, he has high trusts in PSVR — and gaming, by and large — as the industry keeps on developing. Gaming is no longer in its early stages; it’s a standout amongst the most predominant types of mainstream entertainment, and Layden accepts proceeded with speculation will just help speed along its improvement.
