Yoshida’s prophecy could be partly rooted in hopes for mass adoption of the PSVR, but current trends and Yoshida’s résumé give his prediction a bit more credence than just promo. The International Data Cooperation estimates VR headset shipments will increase from 9.6 million this year to 64.8 million by 2020, an increase of more than 400 percent.
Yoshida started at Sony in 1986 and was an integral part of the original PlayStation’s success, as he worked as third party manager, securing licensing rights for games from monolithic gaming companies such as Konami and Capcom. He’s responsible for helping bring defining titles such as Resident Evil, Metal Gear Solid, and Final Fantasy VII to Playstation in its early years. He compared the shift in gaming the original Playstation caused to what PSVR could possibly accomplish. “In terms of disruption, this is the most since PS1 and perhaps even greater than that.”
If the PSVR truly becomes the PlayStation of virtual reality, then millions may never see the world the same again.
