Virtual reality is making headlines right now, and it's only going to get more intense from here. The concept of VR gaming really started to appear in the news again over the last year with the success of the Oculus Rift, a head-mounted display that allows you to feel like you're actually in a videogame. Only developers and a small number of crowdfunding backers have been able to get their hands on it so far, but most of them say good things.
As the world waited for a consumer release, something else major happened. At the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco last week, Sony decided to use the event to showcase its new plans for virtual reality: a mysteriously named device called Project Morpheus that works with the PlayStation 4. Suddenly one of the giants of console gaming was backing virtual reality, surely it was time to sit up and take notice?
