Sony first unveiled its upcoming virtual reality game platform at the Games Developer Conference in 2014. Then the company revealed it with the codename Project Morpheus, which is otherwise the PlayStation VR. Sony president Yoshida hailed it as, “the next innovation from PlayStation that will [shape] the future of games.”
At the Paris Games Week Sony announced a number of new exclusive and non-exclusive games for the PlayStation VR. Sony confirmed that there are now more than 200 game developers producing games for the PlayStation VR. Guerrilla Cambridge, Supermassive Games and Crytek were three that unveiled new game titles for the upcoming virtual reality platform.
Firstly, Crytek confirmed its developing Robinson: The Journey as an exclusive PlayStation VR game. That stars Robin who has landed on a planet filled with dinosaurs. Crytek’s trailer for the game showed off an impressively realistic jungle landscape that includes plenty of dinosaurs. Dave Bowman, the Crytek Director of Production, stated, “Our work with Sony so far has made it clear that they want to deliver the most immersive and unique home VR experiences imaginable to gamers, and we’re working hard to make sure Robinson fits that description perfectly.”

Sony Computer Entertainment also announced Gran Turismo Sport as the next installment for the enthralling racing game series.
