Earlier this month Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima shocked the entire videogame industry by revealing that he was involved with the development of a new Silent Hill title through an interactive teaser known as P.T.. The demo’s first-person perspective, among many other factors, led VRFocus to speculate that said title could support VR. Now Sony Computer Entertainment’s (SCE) Shuhei Yoshida has revealed that he think Kojima working in VR would be ‘awesome’, as well as seeing Bungie’s upcoming Destiny support VR head-mounted displays (HMD).
Yoshida revealed as much in a recent interview with The Verge based on SCE’s Project Morpheus VR HMD. “That would be awesome,” Yoshida said when asked about the possibility of the famed developer working with the technology. “Kojima-san has always liked gadgets. He always has some future vision for some gadgets.
“Have you played the Destiny beta?” he continued to ask. “Half of the time I was just hiding out in the Tower, just chilling, looking at the great vista. That would be great in a VR setup.”
Any further details on Silent Hills are yet to be revealed. It would certainly be exciting to see a title with this high a profile support VR, although as we suggested in a recent Make it a (Virtual) Reality piece, P.T. might prove a bit too much to handle in VR.
As for Destiny, Bungie’s anticipated first-person shooter (FPS), no statement has been made about VR support, though perhaps it could one day be possible in inevitable sequels.
VRFocus will continue to follow all aspects of VR going forward, reporting back with any further updates.
