IGN - Shuhei Yoshida talks to us about why he's so excited about Morpheus and the future of gaming.
Translation: Buy It
EVE:VR at 0:33 in the video!!! I say that because I played EvE:VR at EGX14, and OMG it completely blew me away. If this comes to Morpheus as a launch title then it is 100% guaranteed that I'm buying Morpeus day 1. :)
If they pride it right I would definitely give it a go. VR sounds promising from what I've heard so far. I tried oculus and it was fun for a while but then kind of got boring. Then again that was only 1 game.
price* freaking auto correct on my phone
morphine plus VR. that would probably be the best experience ever.
Misread the title and thought it said Morphine
Well I'm sure he loves that as well. I mean, who doesn't love morphine?
Obligatory: "Flintstones chewable Morphine"
But I'll miss Sheriff Lobo
The improved specs are very promising, and the updated hardware is extremely sexy. I wasn't impressed with Morpheus at E3 2014 but now I'm intrigued once again. One thing I feel is that Morpheus will be the most affordable VR solution. But that's just a hunch.
I know he's the head of PlayStation but Morpheus is frikkin cool. Why wouldn't he like it especially with how well designed it is and the way if affects gaming.
I can definitely see how vr would work with games that have a 1st person perspective (driving Sims and fp-shooters) and it will be interesting to see how many AAA devs take it up. However, as with many add on pieces of kit, im also worried that it may end up being a bit short lived as people often go back to what they already have. Let's not forget about the days of motion controls when they first came about. And how quickly many switched back to good old fashioned control pads.
Motion controls and 3D. Everyone jumped on the motion controls band wagon after Nintendo's success with the Wii, but even them are now reaping the consequences of investing on a fad -as in no one is buying the Wii U. Sony as well with the Move fad, that didn't last very long and only about 3 or 4 games really were built from the ground up for the Move. Same with their push for 3D at the end of the last gen. Similarly Microsoft who initially bundled the Kinect 2.0 with the XbOne, what happened to that idea... well now they unbundled it. But with VR, it seems to me that the whole package has now come together, and is where industry was always goign to go. The differnce this time round is the level of investment across the industry into VR. This means that there will be good software and hardware support out there. Sony is actually best positioned for VR as they are the only company so far that has the dedicated hardward side AND dedicated software side to the package. The issue will always be price and software support. But I'm definately in support of VR becoming more mainstream.
Thanks for the reply mike. I found it very constructive and well thought out. And I do hope myself that vr does turn out to be more than just a passing fad.
Warthunder will be amazing from cockpit view with Morpheus and Oculus Rift.
This should be stand alone. They should link it to a remote or tv or something but I dnt feel like they should not tie it to the ps4 only.
