How Project Morpheus Can Succeed

Richard Drummond of Gaming Tech United writes:

"Virtual Reality is the next big thing in gaming according to companies like Sony, Valve, and Oculus Rift. With the excitement in the air that we, the end consumer, will get our hands on them in the next couple of years, you hear speculation as to how each company can make sure that their piece of hardware stays afloat. Today I'm focusing on Project Morpheus, Sony's VR Headset, and what is needs to get right in order to thrive int he gaming world."

I am VERY excited for Morpheus to hit. I'll buy in even if it does hit around the $450-$500 mark. I've used the OR and if the Morpheus is even a quarter as good as it, I'm completely sold.

I know VR won't be for everyone, but I really love it and I can't wait to see what plans Sony has for it.

Don't set you hopes too high.

Just look what the Vita was meant to be, what it is today..

Vita has a software problem though, we know that isn't an issue for PS4.

Price will be the biggest hurdle.

I think you're on target. I believe that price is a big hurdle for sure. If this thing touches $450 it's gonna be a hard sell. I'll still consider it because I'm a big ol nerd, but I doubt average Joe gamer is gonna pop on that price.

Get the Morphues out in every venue possible. Simply watching a VR experience on video does it ZERO justice. People need to experience the magic first hand in order to see the light and understand. Have a library of games demonstrating the best of each unique VR experience ready before launch. Relauch Playstation home which will serve as a centralized place other VR players can meet and socialized. Finally, get the price right at no more than $350.

I completely agree. I think a Morpheus needs to be in very Best Buy, GameStop, etc ASAP. I don't think VR is something you really understand until the headset is actually on you.

I'm also really crossing my fingers that the price stays low.

I wouldnt be surprised if the E3 (or whatever conference is closest) before the Morpehus releases, they hold a special event like Nintendo did for Smash Bros at select Best Buys.

They need to show us some 1st Party AAA titles that are specifically made for the Morpheus.

And if there are already some, please provide a link. I'd love to see what they're going to be like.

NinjaRichParty1279d ago

AAA support is a must. I totally agree. I'm almost positive that Media Molecules newest game will heavily use the Morpheus. I just have a good feeling.

With Microsoft accepting oculus on their console will help Sony establish a really well prepared lineup of games just cause now developers Will have ability of getting more revenue from multiple consoles and pc. The new era of vr seems to be taking shape pretty well at it's own pace

You do know that the Xbox One can't PLAY Oculus games, right? The Xbox One can stream non VR games to the Oculus. You still need a pretty good PC to run the Oculus at a recommended setting.
