Rumor: Sony To Unveil Occulus Rift Competitor At GDC

sony-vr-mockup-featured-gamesaga

According Edge Online, Sony is set to reveal their upcoming Occulus Rift competitor which as of now doesn’t have a name, so we’ll just call it Sony VR. Edge goes on to say that some 3rd parties already have prototype versions and they say it’s already better than the Rift’s first version. They go on to say that there isn’t much to look at in terms of games or the like, but Sony is expected to at least show a tech demo or the like at GDC. Sony is reportedly not forcing developers to implement Sony VR, so it appears for now it’ll just be an optional accessory. Sony is scheduled to reveal something, perhaps the Sony VR at GDC on March 18th according to Edge.

Nippon Ichi Software had previously teased a new game with a teaser website. The phrase thiQNLo# appeared on the site. It was revealed in this week’s magazines in Japan that this an anagram for a new PlayStation Vita game. The game will be called htoL#NiQ. This is an abbreviation for Hotaru no Nikki which translates to Firefly’s Diary, according to Siliconera.

In the game players control a firefly which leads around a girl named Mion. You’ll be able to move inside shadow objects with something called Shadow Fireflies. The game will have ruins that feature enemies in the shadows. If you’re caught by them, Mion will die, not unlike similar mechanics in the DS Zelda games and Slender.

Hotaru no Nikki is set to release on June 19th for the Vita with a suggested retail price of ¥5,800 for the collector’s edition (comes with an art book, soundtrack, & badges) and a digital version for ¥3,086.
