Sony Unveils Project Morpheus VR Headset at GDC 2014

Last week we wrote about Sony’s plans to unveil their virtually reality headset at this year’s Game Developer’s Conference in San Francisco. True to their word, they introduced the world to Project Morpheus and now we’ve got a more detailed look at what’s in store for us.

Project Morpheus will feature a full 1080p display with a 90 degree field of view. It’s one screen view and not the binocular view as seen in recordings of the Oculus Rift. It will allow for 360 degrees of head tracking, whether or not you’re in sight of the PlayStation Camera. The headset will use spatial sound and be able to simulate over 60 virtual speakers. It will also support custom headphones, including wireless ones.

While using Project Morpheus, gamers will have the ability to display the game world on the television in the traditional view to make it more fun and appropriate for social gatherings. This could also allow for additional players to take part in the game, not unlike the tablet-like controller for the WiiU.
