When the PlayStation 4 was releasing, Wedbush Morgan’s analyst Michael Patcher predicted it was going to be a great success. However, he doesn’t have the same opinion about Sony’s Project Morpheus.
Fans on the other hand, are fairly excited about Sony’s venture into the virtual reality realm and one thing is certain; the head mounted device’s announcement has been one of the biggest news to come out of GDC 2014.
If you have previously missed out on the Project Morpheus GDC presentation where Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida unveiled the device, we have the video in full right on top of this story.
You must be on this page because you actually wanted to view the presentation but if you are more into skimming through one hour long videos like this one, here’s an excerpt from Yoshida while he detailed the features of Project Morpheus:
Our current prototype for Project Morpheus features a head mounted display with 1080p resolution and a 90 degree field of view. Accelerometer and gyroscope sensors built into the head mounted unit as well as PlayStation Camera accurately tracks head orientation and movement, so as your head rotates, the image of the virtual world rotates intuitively in real-time.
He also details how their new 3D technology will produce stereoscopic sounds in multiple directions and change them depending on which way your head is. PlayStation Camera and DualShock 4 are also going to be compatible with it and Sony is labeling the headset as a “plug and play VR experience.”
