PSVR game boxes make it clear you need a PSVR

UPDATE: All PSVR games support DualShock 4 controllers.

UPDATE 12th July 2016: Sony issued a clarification to Eurogamer today, confirming that all PSVR games support DualShock 4 controllers.

Here's the statement:

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.

Images being shown of PSVR packaging on some websites are early mock ups and not representative of the finished packaging.

ORIGINAL STORY 11th July 2016: Several retailers have released images of what PlayStation VR game box art looks like with amusing warnings letting folks know what games require a host of VR peripherals.

The ones that only offer PSVR as an option simply say "PlayStation VR Compatible" at the top.

However, the PlayStation VR-exclusive titles offer an amusing "You'll need these" warning next to an image of the PlayStation VR headset, PlayStation Camera, and a set of PlayStation Move controllers.

Retailers like Amazon UK and ShopTo have listed various games like PlayStation VR Worlds and Hustle Kings VR with the following box art:


North America retailers like Best Buy have revealed box art that looks a little bit different with a banner saying "Playstation VR Game" and the same "you'll need these" warning at the bottom.
