Sony’s Playstation 4 Morpheus Virtual Reality Headset

Having first announced its first SonyPlaystion 4 VR headset at last year’s GDC, Sony revealed an improved prototype version of its “Project Morpheus” virtual reality headset at this years Games Developers Conference. Compared to last year’s specs, the enhance version features an upgraded 5.7 inch OLED screen that notably reduces motion blur and latency, an issue that was apparent in the initial reveal. Furthermore, improvements to the Morpheus is expected to support graphics at 120 frames per seconds. Though still in its prototype phase with a target release in 2016, Sony demoed the VR headsets with three new video games such as “London Heist,” a first person shooting game with the ability to hide behind objects, pop out to shoot and reloading with PlayStation Move controllers. With the Move controllers, the device is able to convert and translate real physical movements onto the game, resulting in an engaging virtual reality gaming experience. Developers will have the opportunity to get their hands on the Morpheus in April. We’ll be following the reviews from developers, so stay tuned!
