Sony will discusss the future of PlayStation 4′s interactive features at GDC this month, in a session that the company claims will see attendees leaving with a better understanding of the console’s, “new and exciting features.”

It follows claims that Sony will unveil its PS4 VR headset behind closed doors at GDC.

GDC kicks takes place March 17-21 in San Francisco, and as always VG247 will be there to get the scoops as they come.

Sony’s session is entitled “Creating Unique Interactive Experiences with the PlayStation 4,” and will be presented by Senior Staff Developer Support Engineer Chris Norden.

The official descriptor explains, “This presentation will explore the technical capabilities and new features of the PlayStation4′s new input devices. We will discuss the DualShock4 controller, PlayStationEye camera, PlayStationmove, PlayStation mobile app, and the new interactive services available during live gameplay streaming. All of these devices and services can be used together to create new interactive experiences that are easy to create and share with the PS4.

“Attendees will leave the presentation with a better understanding of some of the new and exciting features that are available to developers to make their PS4 games stand out from the rest.”

    Really seems like Sony have their head screwed on this gen.

    Whilst I am 100% a PC only at the moment, I still look on the PS4 and really do want one from the games and apps they have on offer.

    The PS3 was an excellent console in its later life, Sony just seem to get it at the moment. The big thing is connectivity, sharing, and online. They have all that in the bag.

    It is a shame Microsoft have lost their steam from the 360 to the XB1, as Sony could run the risk of getting too big for their boots and we the consumer do not want that to happen. Competition is always good for the consumer.

    First, on the possibility of a PS4 VR headset, I think it would be much better for Sony if they simply allowed the Oculus Rift to work with the system. However, I can see a scenario where Sony provides more than the Oculus Rift could as a result of the company having more experience in making Personal 3D Viewers. They may have learned more than the Oculus Rift team has on how to best display a movie, possibly even ways of storing films or games on the device itself.

    Second, about the other features, I hope these involve improvements to the Playstation App especially. I still don’t see much value in PlayStation Move, but I can see a lot of people using the Playstation App if it works well. Last time I tried to use it (which is admittedly a while ago), it wouldn’t keep me signed in, and I’d have to keep re-entering my login information each time.

    @CPC_RedDawn I’d prefer if the competition was from a Nintendo that knew what they were doing, rather than with Microsoft. I think Microsoft’s original plans with DRM, the forcibly bundled Kinect, and an obvious attempt to focus on making XBox One an entertainment device in general rather than a video game console all point to Microsoft thinking they’d already won and didn’t need to care about what gamers actually want.

    @CPC_RedDawn,
    You really don’t have to worry about that. As long as there is money in games biz, it will attract companies like a bear to honey.
