Sony looks beyond video games with hit PlayStation VR

Electronics maker isn't alone in envisioning virtual job training and more

Andrew House, president of Sony Interactive Entertainment, says the once-scarce PlayStation VR is now largely back on shelves.

PALO ALTO, U.S. -- Sony's PlayStation VR virtual reality headset has sold over 1 million units since its October launch, and the Japanese electronics maker is just one of many companies intending to take VR technology beyond video gaming.

Andrew House, president of Sony Interactive Entertainment, said he intends "to continue building on the strengths of the Sony group, which makes content as well as hardware." House spoke with The Nikkei ahead of the Electronic Entertainment Expo, a major international video game conference commonly known as E3, which opens June 13 in Los Angeles.
