There are real games for Project Morpheus, we just haven’t seen them yet.
One of the first VR headsets to make it to market, Sony’s Project Morpheus will launch in the first half of 2016.
This seems remarkably soon, given that we’ve only seen tech demos so far, and nobody’s going to shell out however many dollars just to watch tech demos on their PS4 (even if they are totally rad) but SCE Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida told Gamespot that there are full games in the works.
“Many studios of ours are working on actual games,” he said.
“We haven’t talked about these games as yet. We are waiting for the right time. Starting probably at E3, we will start to show the actual games.”
Sony is also working on new demos, to show consumers and developers what is possible in VR. Yoshida is really excited to see what other, future projects come about as a result of Sony’s investment in the platform.
“I’m expecting a developer that we don’t even know exists today will come up with something amazing,” he said.
“What excites me most, from our experience launching many platforms, is that it’s always someone who we do not expect that comes up with totally new ideas and blows anybody’s mind.”
It’s a really exciting time for VR. Vive and HTC’s Vive headset may release before the end of the year, given it was added to the Steam website along with Steam Machines, which launch in November. The consumer version of Oculus Rift has not yet been dated.
