Sony unveils VR headset
The PlayStation 4 is set to take another step into the future, with Sony unveiling a brand new virtual reality (VR) headset for the console that changes the landscape of gaming.
Project Morpheus, as it is currently known, projects an image in front of the user's eyes and shifts it, while advanced sensors track the motion of the gamer's head.
So far, reception to the VR headset has been highly positive, with president of the division Shuhei Yoshida claiming the Japanese firm had been encouraged in recent months by a similar response to startup created products such as Oculus VR and Valve.
"This is the culmination of our work for three-plus years and realizes our vision of VR for games," he told journalists at a press conference this week.
Sony has yet to set a release date for Project Morpheus, but said it will hopefully be made available to gamers as soon as possible.
