    Sony announce PSVR for PS4. Project Morpheus

    Apparently Sony have been working on Move VR intergration now for over 4 years.

    Now is the time to show it off.





    1080p display, 90-degree field of view.



    Tracking duties are handled by the existing PS4 PlayStation Camera, which polls at 1000Hz (one thousand times every second it's checking your position) and you can turn 360 degrees
    Which means PlayStation Camera will be required for tracking of course.

    Sony have got demos at GDC but most interesting of all EVE Valkyrie which was announced as an Oculus exclusive.

    Twitter Quote from the Doritos Pope to get excited about.

    Developers who have used Project Morpheus tell me the fidelity of the image and experience is superior to Oculus Rift.
    Q&A's from the show, via the Verge.

    Are you going to create a VR-specific operating system?
    They're still just working on getting it to work on the PS4.
    A 5-meter wire currently connects the headset, but they're working on freeing it up. They're refusing to answer any questions on final specs or when it's coming out ("as soon as possible, for as low as possible.")
    Will the hardware work with PC? "Our current focus is on PlayStation." Of course, they're not ruling anything out. "As a technical person, it's possible, but we're not discussing product decisions today."
    "You can also only use a single one per PlayStation"

    I'm surprised by the Eve news because as you said it was announced as a Rift exclusive, even published/financed by OR iirc but 2 of the best things that VR will bring to PS4 are:

    Finally being able to play CDs on our PS4's. Virtually!

    And as for the NASA project, forget Mars, imagine seeing attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion & c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannh?user Gate!

    It looks like something Daft Punk would wear. Interested to see how it compares to Oculus even though I very much doubt the whole vr wavevwill gain much traction with the general populace.

    I thought the same Daft Punk! But it's actually just the stacking arrangement in the 3rd pic that has fooled us.

    Those blue LEDs would be distracting. I had to put tape over the blue light on my PS3 because I found it too distracting. My eye zones in on blue LEDs like a moth to a lightbulb. I cut the wire to the blue LED on my modded Xbox. They are awful.

    Now they put blue LEDs in / on the headset? Madness.

    I'm interested!

    I'll be back in a bit, I'm just off to email Sandlot to ensure they make their PS4 Earth Defense Force game compatible with this.

    I think it's just sat on a box with a light inside it.
    There's a vent on the side of the box to cool the bulbs and the headset is only lit where it touches the white perspex top.

    A man walks into a dentist and says "Help! I think I'm a moth!"
    The dentist replies "I can't help you, I'm a dentist."
    The man concedes "I know, but you left your light on."

    Just when you think you're getting away with no hardware purchases in a year...
