Sony looks very promising in the virtual reality battle thanks to its strong PlayStation VR games. GameStop CEO Paul Raines has recognised the potential of the company’s upcoming games for its VR headset. The leading game retailer said this at a press conference held in Orlando, stating that the title count will matter the most for VR headsets.

Raines was addressing the ICR Conference 2016. He talked about virtual reality there, and the retailer expressed his views on the VR headsets launching this year that include Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR and HTC Vive.

As far as virtual reality is concerned, Raines said that he doesn’t want to get into talks about the quality of the VR headsets. Instead, what he thinks about at the moment are the quality and quantity of the content that can be run using the VR devices. Talking about the number count, Raines thinks that Sony’s PlayStation VR is leading the virtual reality game with its huge lineup of VR games.

"The more important thing will be the title count at launch," Raines said as quoted by GameSpot. "I think that's going to be big, and from what we can see at this point, Sony seems to have the strongest title count."

With a positive outlook towards VR headsets, Raines hopes to see the hardware at his stores. He said that virtual reality headset makers will introduce many VR products in the future and more accessories like goggles, motion controllers and gloves will be included by the companies. More people will be interested in buying these things from GameStop, he added.

Virtual reality is obviously one of the hottest tech-trends of 2016. However, none of the VR headset makers or game developers have announced the specific number of games coming with their devices at the time of launch.

Sony has confirmed that more than 100 VR games are under development and around 200 developers have signed up to develop PlayStation VR games. This promise from Sony to BBC strengthens the words of GameStop CEO about the PlayStation VR.
