The Game Developer's Conference is ramping up in San Francisco, CA, and announcements are already pouring out of Moscone Center. Sony came out swinging with the reveal of Project Morpheus, a virtual reality addon that will be making its way to the PlayStation 4 sometime in the future.
It looks a little like something Geordi La Forge would be wearing in Star Trek, but Sony promises that it will combine the latest in proprietary 3D graphics with outstanding audio to create an immersive gameplay experience. I imagine this opens up developers who have been creating for the Oculus Rift to also work with Sony's hardware. It seems like a wise decision to break into the VR market, knowing that Microsoft is years behind in this technology, and gamers are looking for more immersion in their gaming. Well as long as that is actual immersion and not another Virtual Boy. Yeah, I said it.
Morpheus will be touchable during GDC 2014, so if you're heading to the conference you should definitely swing by Sony's booth on the Expo floor to check it out. No doubt we'll hear more about the timing of the release of Morpheus and its cost as the year progresses on toward E3.
