German Ratings Board Rates Project Morpheus Title Higher in HMD Than On Screen


It’s very possible that virtual reality (VR) technology will be a source of huge controversy when the industry inevitably arrives at a point of total immersion. New action experiences could allow players to realistically handle deadly weapons while horror titles will become much more convincing. Just how these issues will be resolved will be interesting to follow, although it could be that higher age restrictions are put in place. In fact, the German Rating Board has already put this approach into practice. READ MORE

Sony Providing ‘An Update’ on Project Morpheus at GDC 2015


The 2014 Game Developers Conference (GDC) was a significant event for the virtual reality (VR) industry. Not only did Oculus VR reveal the second development kit (DK2) for its Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD) but Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) announced its Project Morpheus HMD for PlayStation 4. In the year that’s followed there has been little new information about the device other than a handful of new videogame announcements. That said, it appears as if the company will be bringing Project Morpheus back to GDC 2015 to at least some degree, providing fans with ‘An Update’ on the device. READ MORE

The studio has at least three VR titles in development at the moment, including Gunner and Perfect Beach for Samsung’s Gear VR smartphone-based head-mounted display (HMD) and The Assembly for the Oculus Rift PC HMD and Project Morpheus PlayStation 4 HMD.

Sony Discussing VR at GDC 2015


The 2014 Game Developers Conference (GDC) last March proved to be a significant event for virtual reality (VR). Not only did Oculus VR reveal the next iteration of its development kit for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD), the DK2, but Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) announced its own VR HMD for PlayStation 4, Project Morpheus.

Oculus Creator: Sony ‘doing a good job’ with Project Morpheus


Since its reveal in March 2014 Sony Computer Entertainment’s (SCE) Project Morpheus virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD) for PlayStation 4 has shared a friendly relationship with the Oculus Rift VR HMD for PC. The companies behind the two kits have been largely eager to demonstrate a sense of cooperation over competition.

Project Morpheus in 2015: Are These Titles Coming to the HMD?


Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) is taking a cautious approach to the Project Morpheus virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD) for PlayStation 4. Despite a successful reveal earlier in the year, the company remains tight-lipped on when and even if the device will release, as well as providing details on any updated prototypes. 2014 was ultimately a quiet year for the kit, then, with the Oculus Rift PC HMD undeniably continuing to lead the charge for the VR industry. Hopefully 2015 is the year that SCE pushes Project Morpheus with new details and announcements. That said, you might be able to guess what some of those reveals will be already. READ MORE
