Project Morpheus

Sony will release Project Morpheus, a virtual reality system for PlayStation 4, the company announced on Tuesday in an event at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. “Virtual reality, or VR, is the next innovation from PlayStation that may well shape the future of games,” Sony Computer Entertainment worldwide studios president Shuhei Yoshida said. The Morpheus headset, which will be available to try at Sony’s GDC booth this week, is “by no means final,” he noted. Sony declined to announce final specs or a release date, but the current developer kit has a 1080p display and a “90+ degree field of view,” which R&D senior software engineer Anton Mikhailov described as being at a “sweet spot” and ready to start showing to developers. Sony has been experimenting with VR technology since at least fall 2010.
