CVG and Eurogamer are both reporting the news, and according to reports Sony had plans to reveal the headset at GamesCom, but decided to hold off at the last minute. The reports also state that the Japanese electronics giant is torn between offering its VR headset as an optical add-on, or as a key part of the PS4 that will set it apart from its main competitor: the Xbox One.

 

CVG and Eurogamer's sources have said that at least one developer, Evolution Studios, is working on providing support for the VR headset with its DriveClub game. DriveClub is Sony's latest first-party racing sim, and a PS4 launch title. Evolution Studios is reportedly incorporating support for the VR headset that would simulate the vehicle's cockpit.
