Sony Announces Virtual Reality Headset

The PlayStation 4 will have its own virtual reality headset. Dubbed Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4, the headset is in the prototype stages and is intended to bring VR gaming – and non-gaming – elements to the PS4. Sony is investing heavily in the project, and has already experimented with multiple prototypes. Sony is looking to integrate the device with PlayStation Camera and PlayStation Move, so that it goes beyond the capabilities of the Rift (and other headsets) that are specifically gaming focused; Sony wants to immerse viewers in a virtual reality experience beyond gaming. The device will be prototyped at GDC, so expect to hear more about this in the future. Virtual Reality, though it’s been around for some time now, just got a huge boost towards mass adoption.
