People who have been wishing that the new and upcoming PlayStation VR virtual reality headset be compatible with high-end PCs may be able to have their wish granted, though not in the foreseeable future, as Sony hinted that they are considering giving their virtual device support for outside the PlayStation 4 console.

At the moment, Sony is offering their new and first virtual reality headset in the market, the PlayStation VR, as an accessory for the PS4which means that device that is compatible only for the console. However, people who wish for the virtual reality device to be available for PCs have some good news for them, as Sony Computer Entertainment’s Senior Vice President Masayasu Ito hinted on the possibility.

In a recent interview with PC Gamer, Masayasu Ito said, “Since PlayStation 4 shares a lot of its components with PCs, the possibility is there.”

However, fans and users who have been rooting for PC support for the virtual reality headset should not expect such a feature to come immediately as the addition of such feature is not the top priority of Sony right now.

“At the moment we are focused on games and we are not ready to make any announcements at this stage, but I’d say there will be an expansion into various fields,” Ito went on.

The PlayStation VR is set to release sometime around October this year. The device is now available for pre-order: $500 for the Launch Bundle, $400 for the core package, with a price equivalent of, 399 in Europe, 349 in the United Kingdom, $549.95 in Australia, and 44,980 in Japan.
