PlayStation VR is in the final track just before its market launch in October 13, and Sony continues to hype people, as well as clear things up for gamers.

The Japanese company noted:

All PlayStation VR titles will support DualShock 4 controllers. However, some game experiences will be enhanced with the use of peripherals such as Move or the recently announced Aim controller.

The above is an answer to several fans who asked what to do if they buy the basic PlayStation VR bundle, in which Move Controllers are not included.

Later however, Sony came to make another statement on top of the previous one:

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.

This is nearly very good news to those who are thinking of buying Sony's VR headset when it is launched, since the full VR bundle which includes two Move controllers to enable positional head-tracking will cost $500, but the package without the controllers will cost $399.

It’s worth noting however that Alex Schwartz of Owlchemy Labs (the team behind the Job Simulator) mentioned that the title of his company requires two Move Controllers. So, either Job Simulator (and other similar games) will have to be redesigned to work with traditional controllers, or they will just not work with them.

We'll have to wait for more news to clarify the requirements and abilities of the PlayStation VR and its titles.
