Leaks of Fallout 4 for PlayStation VR are appearing.

Recently it was discovered that visiting the Italian version of Amazon you can find a preorder option for
“Fallout 4 VR – [PlayStation VR ready] – PlayStation 4”
put up by what appears to be the official Bethesda seller for Amazon.
the page can be found Here.

Additionally, Reddit user Crisp_47 discovered that in the GameStop catalogue, under the upcoming PSVR releases, Fallout 4 VR was included in this list.
Post can be found Here.

While GameStop hasn’t been a reliable source of information regarding unannounced releases, the timing of these two discoveries diminish the plausibility that they are both false as well as coincidental to each other. Though Bethesda have yet to formally make an announcement about Fallout 4 VR coming to PSVR. Personally, I have a difficult time believing that fallout 4 can achieve and maintain the necessary 60 frames per second requirement of all VR games, Though I remain hopeful to be proven wrong.
