It's Like The Matrix, Except You're Daft Punk!


Look's like Sony GOT LUCKY with their Project Morpheus model, am I right?

Yep, Sony are stepping into the VR business with their Project Morpheus VR product, which makes some people look uncannily like Jean Claude Van Damme or whoever is the guy that plays guitar in Daft Punk! They revealed it yesterday at GDC in San Francisco, the first big game conference of the year, and buy golly gosh does it look cool! Instead of having the Oculus Rift's blocky look, Sony has gone for a more streamlined, futuristic approach, which could possibly add a helluva lot to the price tag. Oh yeah, did I mention that you can play games in 1080p on it?

I am officially the king of bad jokes
However, to use the Morpheus, you won't have to take the red pill. Instead, you'll have to buy the Playstation Camera, which will track your head movements, but there are still sensors in the camera, so it'll be very accurate. Apparently, Sony have been working on it for 3 years, and this is still the unfinished prototype, so the Morpheus might get smaller and more powerful in months to come. No price or release date have been announced, but what we DO know is that this may be the start of games coming with VR modes, so you can play your games on the TV or the Morpheus, as it's been announced that the demonstration on Wednesday will include the new Thief game, so fingers crossed it works!

What do you guys think? Does a PS4 Virtual Reality headset excite you? Or do you just want to play your games on your big TV? Tell us in the comments below!
