Shu Yoshida, President, Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios, today revealed Project Morpheus, SCE’s prototype virtual reality (VR) system that works with PlayStation 4 at GDC 2014.

"Virtual reality is the next innovation from SCE that we believe will shape the future of games," he said. "I have long dreamed about VR and the possibilities it brings in regards to game development. This new technology will deliver a sense of presence, where you as the player actually feel like you’re inside the game and your emotions feel that much more real."

Project Morpheus features a head mounted display with 1080p resolution and a 90 degree field of view. Accelerometer and gyroscope sensors built into the head mounted unit as well as PlayStation Camera accurately tracks head orientation and movement, so as your head rotates, the image of the virtual world rotates intuitively in real-time. Project Morpheus also features Sony's new 3D audio technology that re-creates stereoscopic sounds in all directions and changes in real-time depending on your head orientation.

In addition to PlayStation Camera, Project Morpheus works with DUALSHOCK 4 Wireless Controller and PlayStation Move to deliver an easy-to-use, plug-and-play VR experience. The prototype will serve as the first development kit for PS4 developers.
