Project Morpheus Development finished - SCED Boss

Uwe Bassendowski, chief of Sony Computer Entertainment Germnay (SCED) claims that the development of Sony's virtual reality headset (Project Morpheus) is finsihed. In an interview with during E3 2014 he explains that the hardware development is completed:

"The development of the hardware is completed. Now this hardware requires appropriate software and this is a lengthy process. We will publish exactly when we start to have a portfolio of x amount of games and in the long run a portfolio of other x amount of games. If we can foresee that, then it is time to go into the market. Before that, this makes no sense. A lot of studios are working on that issue and when they say they have clarity as to when they can take a possible release, then we can make it into a release strategy."

Wow, what's with all the disagrees for mentioning No Man's Sky here? How can some people not see how incredible that game looks? Makes me lose a little hope in the gaming community. :\

This is great to hear, this means Sonys only hold up is having games to launch with the system. I wonder what the first big budget title will be...

ZodTheRipper1640d ago

I'm not sure whether it will be the first but I'm sure that we'll see VR support for Gran Turismo.

OwnageDC6501640d ago

I want to know the price and release date please. Can't wait to try it!

Kyanu1640d ago

Really can't wait to see it with my own eyes.

98xpresent1640d ago

Price reveal at gamescom ?????

Kyanu1640d ago

That would be so awesome! :)

emad-E-three1640d ago

I personally don't think so I mean I think Sony will keep the release date till maybe the PS4 reaches something like 15 million units sold so it can have a better install base which means a higher opportunity for Project Morpheus to sell units on its first months and when it does, That will lead to more support from the 3rd party studies! So I would expect either GDC or E3 2015 will have a release date of holiday 2015 and the PS4 I predict it will be between 15 to 20 million units sold at that time :D

ravinash1636d ago

I would think that releasing Morpheus now would boost the PS4 sales.
It would be a major feature over the other consoles.

If anything, they are trying to get more game support so plenty of games will be ready when it comes out.

mushroomwig1640d ago

I'm hoping for that too, along with it's official name since Project Morpheus is obviously just the dev name for it.

KakashiHotake1640d ago

All I can say is that 2015 is going to be an amazing year for PlayStation. PS4 is already off to an outstanding start and is looking to end it's 1st year with at least 10 million units sold. Then their going to release PlayStation TV which I have a feeling will be a hit among casuals and has the potential to become a fad. Then there's Morpheous bringing VR, which i have no doubt is going to be huge.

Brettman20081640d ago

I'm expecting 15-17 million PS4s sold by years end.

KakashiHotake1640d ago

Me too but even 10 million is still quite a feat in a consoles 1st year.

Bennibop1640d ago

I don't believe they have finished the development of the system, probably just the spec has been finalised as they were still looking at oled last were heard (which is a must have if Morpheus is going to be worthwhile.)
