The future is here...
Coming Soon reports that Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios President Shu Yoshida has revealed a prototype virtual reality system at GDC 2014 called Project Morpheus, which will work on the Playstation 4.
He said: "Virtual reality is the next innovation from SCE that we believe will shape the future of games. I have long dreamed about VR and the possibilities it brings in regards to game development. This new technology will deliver a sense of presence, where you as the player actually feel like you're inside the game and your emotions feel that much more real."
The system is a head-mounted display with 1080p resolution and a 90-degree field of vision. It has built-in accelerometer and gyroscope sensors along with a Playstation Camera to track head orientation and movement. As the player's head moves, the image of the virtual world moves with it. It also features new 3D audio technology that recreates stereoscopic sounds all around the player and changes in real-time depending on orientation of the player's head. The system also works with the DUALSHOCK 4 Wireless Controller and PlayStation Move to "deliver an easy-to-use, plug-and-play VR experience." It will be the first development kit for PS4 developers.
