SONY Unveils Virtual Reality Prototype for the PS4 [Project Morpheus]

It looks like the Oculus Rift has a competitor in its backyard now: Sony’s new virtual reality headset for the PS4: Project Morpheus.

  • 1080p display
  • 1000Hz motion detection
  • Only one headset at a time is supported
  • Headset is currently connected to the PS4 by a 5-meter wire
  • Positional/rotational head tracking
  • Tracking is handled by the same camera that tracks PS4 Move controllers
  • It works for people with glasses
  • Content pushed to the Morpheus can be mirrored to a TV, but it sounds like it can handle asymmetric gameplay (different things on each screen) as well.
  • An “Open air” design prevents the lenses from fogging up. (It’ll be interesting to see how they prevent light leaking in) [Source]

  1. When will we get a decent VR for the PC (aside from Just the Oculus Rift)? And what happened to the HomeBrew VR movement that started in the 90’s?

    • You are looking at sometime in 2015 for any of this VR to hit the market. I’m seriously looking forward to the Rift. I like they are taking the time before release so this should give us plently of games with VR support. I counted 5 games that were demoed at SXSW, and that was only the ones being shown to the public and not the demos behind closed doors.

      What happened to the 90s moment, is the technology wasn’t powerful or small enough to support VR
