Project Morpheus signals Sony’s entrance into the VR arms race


The Oculus Rift won’t be the only gaming headset that people will be talking about in the near future. Sony announced this week that its VR headset, currently named Project Morpheus, will be released sometime in the first half of 2016.

Project Morpheus will be used with the PlayStation 4 and features a 5.7-inch display and improved motion tracking. It will face steep competition from the growing VR arms race, however. Like the Rift (which is coming out this year), it will go up against headsets from HTC/Valve (the Vive) and Microsoft.

Among MMOs studios, CCP is perhaps the most involved with VR; at last year’s GDC, the studio announced that EVE Valkyrie, its upcoming EVE Online crossover title, will support both the Rift and Morpheus.
