Fallout 4 VR also coming to PSVR?
Rumors are swirling that Pete Hines might have accidentally slipped up and revealed that Fallout 4 VR is indeed coming to PlayStation VR. First off, we have to say that this is complete and utter speculation, and could have zero basis in reality. Still, it's an interesting comment from Pete Hines nonetheless.. So what did he actually say ? Well, he appeared on Rooster Teeth's YouTube channel during e3 week and was talking about how the Pip Boy works in Fallout 4 VR, with the simple turn of the wrist. He also mentioned that on other platforms, he thinks the Pip Boy can be brought up with a button press. The HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and even Microsoft's upcoming mixed-reality headsets all use tracked hand controllers, so there really wouldn't be any need for a button press, right ?
Well, this could indeed suggest that it will come to PSVR sooner or later, but we also must consider the fact that many Rift headsets were sold sans Touch. Even though 9 out of 10 Rift owners own a Touch (if not more), Bethesda could be looking out for that 1 in 100 scenario where somebody has the launch Xbox Controller but no Touch. Of course, if that's the case, it's funny that they would bend over backwards for greater Oculus support, considering all the legal battles still in progress between Facebook and Zenimax.
