Jim Ryan, the director of PlayStation, thinks that virtual reality (VR) will only be a worthy part of the entertainment world in years to come.

"I think the future of VR will take a while," he said in conversation with

The Washington Post


“PlayStation believes in VR. Sony believes in VR, and we firmly believe that VR will one day be a worthy aspect of interactive entertainment,” said Ryan.

"Will it be this year? No. Will it be next year? No. But will the point ever come? We believe that."

Sony took its first steps in the field of virtual reality in 2016 with the introduction of the PlayStation VR (PSVR).

The VR glasses, which work with the PlayStation 4, mainly competed with the HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift at the time.

Sony has not yet disclosed any plans to release a separate VR headset for the PS5.

"We are very pleased with the experience we have gained with PlayStation VR," Ryan told the newspaper.

"We look forward to seeing where that takes us in the future."
