You know it's quality hardware when a dev says "So the resolution is not an issue for Morpheus. The depth is good, comfort is good…Not best tracking, but can be fixed I think"
With good software and an affordable price this thing could be awesome. Might even be market-ready before the Occulus.

I doubt it. Everything I have read said that Sony is hoping to get it out by holiday 2015. The Rift on the other hand is supposed to be out later this year. Even if the release of the Rift slips into early next year it will still be on the market well before Sony's VR headset.

The first application they should put on the VR headset is where you have the ability to shake the hands of all the major players behind the construction of the PS4 and the VR headset lol.

The ending should have you shaking hands with Cerny himself.

Introducing their other newperipheral that comes boxed into the VR head mounted display, the shaker.
Unreal01  +   432d ago
That can be the good ending. The bad ending is you shaking hands with Gabe Newell.
GentlemenRUs  +   432d ago
Good ending = Cerny

Bad ending = Shaking hands with M$ and Activison then signing your soul away!


EDIT: Sorry but I just couldn't help myself.

i still think they need to add the tracking to the device rather than rely on the camera to track
KUV1977  +   432d ago
Head rotation and tilt is in the device. Moving your head left or right, up or down needs the camera, just like occulus.

Cool, that's what I figured. You beat me to it.

I thought the razer Hydra took care of tracking for the rift
fenome  +   432d ago
I think they should incorporate gyroscopes as well as camera tracking so it can be that much more precise. The possibilities with this and the Move controllers are really phenomenal.
KwietStorm  +   432d ago
It does use gyroscope.
fenome  +   432d ago
Cool, I assumed it did, but I wasn't 100% sure so I didn't want to state it as fact. Considering they've been using gyros in their controllers since the sixaxis, it would've been silly not use them in this. lol

I think it was really smart by Sony to announce it at have it playable at GDC then announcing it later. This way they can take the feedback and improve it for E3. Also, since it's already announced Sony have lots of time at E3 to announce other "stuff" (TLOU ps4 and other AAA games)
IcicleTrepan  +   432d ago
I really hope they have a release date for this by E3.
mark3214uk  +   432d ago
ah ok i understand now,thanks

With the camera tracking, do you think there could be an app that can make my wife look like Kate Upton and track her head and body movements? :p
feedurhabit  +   432d ago
Feasible. But there won't be an app to protect you from the slapping you'll get if she reads that comment.

Sony is working to perfect Console VR gaming! with Project Morpheus

As someone who wears prescription glasses I'm going to guess I'm pretty much screwed huh?

Edit: A simple google search tells me that Oculus has removable cups to solve this issue. Another search tells me that over 60% of American's need some sort of vision correction. I hope Sony has a solution also

I'm pretty sure I saw that they were going to accommodate to those who wear glasses, not positive though!
Volkama  +   432d ago
Yoshida wears glasses and says it is comfortable.

Sony was wise to present a prototype. They have now the best of the developer community making QA and giving well needed feedback. So far the feedback has been better than I expected, many saying that it is better than Oculus. All the feedback, being good or bad will turn Morpheus into the best VR.

I'm a believer now Morpheus, I will take the blue pill.

this is a couple years away from release why do u guys think @ e3 its gunna have a launch of this year seriously?It's in Prototype stage devs have not even got it yet how long you think it will take them to develop games 6mths on vr game?It looks cool from a design stand point but its in very early stages at least a few years

i oddly hope they are secretly planning to launch a new version of Home for the ps4 without the clunky character movements that supports this. also, PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD AND ALL THAT IS HOLY: Everquest Next.
dcj0524  +   432d ago
Isn't that too fast paced?
