Sony is focused on expanding to the PC side of gaming and integrating the latest VR headset with the initiative is like killing two birds with one stone. The hardware may be impressive but there is not enough first-party support to make it more appealing to the gaming community. Fortunately, Sony came up with a solution by releasing an official adapter for PC to make the experience more seamless.

The game industry is about to enter a new and exciting chapter that may remove all barriers between platforms. Sony has shown a great track record of always delivering something innovative and living up to the promise of greatness, whereas Microsoft is seemingly always a step behind. Partnering with Steam could boost the popularity of the brand even more now that virtual reality is gaining more and more traction and support from game developers.

The hardware was released ahead of its time and the expensive price tag was not doing it any favors. Perhaps this will give the device the boost it needs to convince consumers it is worth picking up. There are plenty of VR headsets available in the market and this will make it a much more suitable accessory for PC players with a hefty Steam library of VR games.

The hardware is generating growing enthusiasm and backing from third-party developers, signaling strong support for the upcoming virtual reality system. Not everyone in the gaming community is at the point where they are willing to commit to or invest in virtual reality gaming, but Sony is cooking up a storm for a great experience.

The platform is already thriving with the traditional flagship console, is getting more ambitious by porting several first-party games to PC and is now open to integrating VR games that are not running on their hardware.

The future of the brand is going in an exciting direction that will no longer be tethered to the traditional form of gaming. Rumors suggest that Sony is developing a groundbreaking new handheld prototype that could revolutionize the gaming industry.
