The VR system is currently codenamed Project Morpheus, and will
work with PlayStation 4. While still in prototype form, Yoshida
says that Morpheus is the “culmination of our work over the last
three years to realize our vision of VR for games, and to push the
boundaries of play.” The headset uses a 1080p LCD, offers a
90-degree field of view, and will integrate with the PlayStation
Camera for tracking and PlayStation Move for motion control. It
connects via HDMI and USB; while the current prototype uses a
5-meter cable, Sony would like to make it wireless. The company
says the headset doesn’t put weight on your nose or cheeks, and
its design allows for airflow without the lenses fogging up.
The race is on — there’s strong consensus that VR headsets are the future of gaming.
