Project Morpheus Receiving “Significant Investment” from Sony
Andrew House believes VR could be interesting for the next frontier of game development.
Though it hasn’t announced a release date or price for the same, Sony’s Andrew House has revealed to The Guardian that the company is putting “significant investment” into Project Morpheus, the proprietary VR headset that will be exclusive to Sony consoles.
“It’s definitely more than an experiment. We’ve made some commitments; we’re putting significant investment into the product.
“We do now think that we can get to this point of delivering a magical sense of presence – where your brain tricks you into thinking you’re actually in this place. We think there’s something there that could be really, really interesting for a next frontier of game development.”
House also talked about Oculus Rift and the lack of a concise business model that could be monetized. Nonetheless, House said that, “It struck that me that if there’s a variety of game developers showing interest in this space then it’s probably time to jump in and see if we can play a part and give them the tools they’re looking for.”
