Project Morpheus

One of the coolest things coming out of Sony in the near future isn’t PlayStation Now or PS Vita Remote Play or PlayStation TV or the slew of great games that they have lined up for their consoles, it is Project Morpheus, the virtual reality headset that they have designed to work with the PS4 and its games.

And it’s coming along swimmingly. It was just shown off at the still ongoing Tokyo Game Show, and if that made you eager to get your own grubby mitts on it, the good news is, Sony says that it’s almost done. As in, 85% of the work on it is done by this point.

However, Sony did refuse to say exactly when the headset would release, or how much would it cost, which is a teensy bit suspicious. That said, Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida still sounded extremely enthusiastic about the project.

“With the Morpheus and PlayStation 4, we can offer them a totally new virtual reality experience in a lighthearted and fun manner,” he said, citing examples such as virtual travel and education. The 3-D virtual world might allow teachers to show students objects in a way that isn’t possible through textbooks or tablets, he said, hinting that Sony may be thinking of expanding its targeted audience eventually, just as it did so successfully with the PlayStation and PlayStation 2.

    I’m sure Microsoft will find a way to copy this

    • Psionicinversion

      ign had a go with it and they played eve valkyrie and they say its not that sharp and bit blurry.

      Oculus Rift on the other hand i think will ship with 1440p display at 75 hz, that will make it uber sharp and destroy morpheous. The consoles arent to powerful, i dont know why MS is even bothering cus unless they release it for PC to cus x1 version will be rubbish

      I thought they were looking into AR not VR? Fortaleza I think it was, bought into alot of patents too. http://www.techradar.com/news/gaming/microsoft-s-augmented-reality-glasses-look-a-good-fit-for-xbox-one-1238370

      there prolly doing both, google glasses will have AR so they could be doing something using kinect and AR but who knows

      Just like Sony only picked this up elsewhere? Besides it’ll only work well on PC.

  • bardock5151

    It’ll be one of lowest adopted peripherals in gaming, too expensive, interiors of houses painted with projectile vomiting, people becoming overly addicted and no decent games to run on it(consoles only). Even the possibility of increased anxiety, detachment from reality, desensitization to violence through immersion and so on but those last examples are clinically unproven and may not be all that common.

    • Lord Darque

      Everything new is scary and there are always those who pronounce doom and gloom. But the prospect of fully immersive gaming continues to be an attractive one. Will they do it well enough to make it work? Hard to say. But I for one am glad they are trying.
