If you were hoping to dig into Resident Evil 7 on either the Oculus or Vive headset at launch, you’ll have to re-evaluate. According to official Sony advertising, the upcoming horror game’s virtual reality capabilities will be exclusive to the PlayStation VR for a year.
Note that this doesn’t mean that the game is console exclusive. Resident Evil 7 is still stated to release on January 24, 2017 for Xbox One and PC too. Those versions will be standard first-person experiences.
Interestingly, Batman: Arkham VR also has timed exclusivity to Sony – albeit, for a shorter period of time. That deal will expire on March 31, 2017.
