How sick of Pi's VR hype are you?


GAF has a thread wondering if PC supporting PSVR would benefit Sony.  

Everyone seems to contend that PC gamers would buy it, would not buy any PSVR games.  
Which doesn't make any sense at all to me.  
If you have a PC strong enough to run VR, you most likely are primarily a PC player.

The only PSVR games they'd buy would be exclusives, just like the only PS4 games they buy are exclusives.

It would benefit Sony, They wont sell the thing for a loss. People that want it for PC and PS4 will by a PSVR before Oculus or Vive because it would work with both.
If it comes out at $399 and they are targeting the enthusiasts, yeah I think PC support would be smart.

However if they go for the mass market price of $199 then it needs to be exclusive. With this strategy they'd be making money off software and expanding the VR market, not off the hardware. OR and Vive cannot go this low.
