Sony added that 50 games will be available for PlayStation VR this year, and that more 230 developers are currently working on PlayStation VR projects, "from smaller independent teams to larger studios at the industry’s top publishers."
PlayStation VR will also include a Cinematic Mode, "which lets users enjoy a variety of content in a large virtual screen while wearing the headset," according to Sony. Cinematic Mode will support standard PS4 games plus videos, and will allow users to "enjoy 360 degrees photos and videos that are captured by devices such as omnidirectional cameras on PS VR via PS4 Media Player, which will let them feel as if they are physically inside the captured scene."
