Sony studios boss 'loved' using Oculus Rift VR headset, wouldn't comment on PS4 support

Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios, says he's personally very excited about the potential of the Oculus Rift VR headset, but he wouldn't comment on whether or not support for the Kickstarter-backed contraption would come to the PlayStation 4.

"A couple of guys in our studios have the Kickstarter version," Yoshida told a group of reporters at E3 today, including Polygon. "I tried it and I loved it. It's great."

Yoshida was asked whether the Oculus Rift VR headset currently works on PlayStation 4. "No it doesn't," he said.

When asked whether Sony plans to support it, he offered, "No comment."

The Oculus Rift currently works on the Windows and Mac OS platforms, with support from developers like Valve, which recently enabled Rift support in its landmark shooter, Half-Life 2. Four Oculus Rift titles are featured at the IndieCade booth at E3 this week.
