PS4Home: "Summing Up: Why You Should Be Excited about Project Morpheus."
I'd say the price would fall under "everything you need to know".
I think it's really important that Sony clarifies that VR is not something you use for all PS4 games. Many think that they buy any PS4 game and play it in VR. VR will be an addition to gaming. It will have especially designed games for it. And it is more demanding to run games in VR so it wont be the same as traditional games. It will be something different. And hopefully something amazing.
"Many think that they buy any PS4 game and play it in VR." I've not heard anyone say that but you are probably correct that it will be an issue when it launches to the mainstream.
I'm seeing it in commenting sections around. People writing things like "cant wait to play X and X in VR". They are going to be disappointed when they realize that they cant play the next X or X in VR because of the hardware limitations.
I think some of them are only speculating about the possibilities.
"I think it's really important that Sony clarifies that VR is not something you use for all PS4 games" They've stated this at all conferences.... Its about a visceral experience..... But lets expand on that, not all games need 360/peripheral vision.... Just as Sonys head mounted 3D displays before it, Morpheus could also be equivalent to a static "ENORMOUS" Display.... Theres a difference, and it looks like morpheus could do both.
I agree with this assessment. I see VR games being more short form experiences than traditional console titles. I can't see devs creating large 10 hour games for this as it's apparently not recommended to stay in the VR space that long for the risk of becoming The Lawnmower Man. I'd personally love to have pointed 1-2 hour immersive gaming experiences as well as smaller 10-15 minute VR excursions like sky diving or BASE jumping. I just see all of these GoPro videos featuring daredevils slack lining hundreds of feet in the air and it seems like the perfect kinds of experiences to translate into the VR space to me. Seems like Sony would eventually stretch this tech past gaming as well. I could see Sonys film division creating short films utilizing VR and I think one day we will get to the point where experiences like these will be winning Oscars for their efforts. It's all a matter of time really, VR is a step above the 3d fad, given time it will be it's own unique experience unto itself.
