Ever the vague Sony has now backtracked on a recent statement which the company released stating that all PlayStation VR games would support the DualShock 4 controller.

In a statement to Eurogamer, Sony said that all PlayStation VR games would support the DualShock 4 controller, now however they’ve done a swift 180 on that statement and has reversed the statement, confirming now to The Verge, that most, but not all games with support the PlayStation 4’s controller.

“Nearly all PlayStation VR titles will support DualShock 4 controllers, and several games will deliver an enhanced experience that further immerses gamers with the use of peripherals such as Move or the recently announced Aim controller. There will be a limited number of titles that require Move controllers,” the statement reads.

Of course, with games not requiring the support of DualShock 4 controllers, it leaves room for developers to utilise the PlayStation Move controllers instead, just like Owlchemy Labs have done with Job Simulator, which requires two Move controllers.

With Sony not requiring all PS VR games to support its DualShock 4, that leaves room for games like Job Simulator to only utilize the Move controllers–in fact, Job Simulator developer Owlchemy Labs told The Verge that the game requires two Move controllers.

Other games, such as RIGS: Mechanised Combat League and Resident Evil 7 can be played using the DualShock 4, not to mention the fact that pretty much all PlayStation 4 games can be played in VR, though not natively, and will offer a projected version of the game on a five-meter screen.

Although Sony is offering a standalone headset bundle, it’s recommended that you pick up the slightly pricier bundle which packs together the headset, the PlayStation Camera, and some Move controllers.
