Half Life The Third Confirmed!.... PS4 VR Confirmed!

Sony has formally announced its virtual reality prototype for PlayStation 4, dubbed Project Morpheus. The head-mounted display features a white visor with a black wrap-around piece along the eye-line, and the edges of the device give off a blue LED glow. The prototype will be available for developers to begin creating games soon.

GDC: Sony Reveals Project Morpheus PlayStation 4 VR Headset

Now Bethesda needs to work on Elder Scrolls VI! Which I'll assume will be a return to ObliVIon.

I wonder if they will have Oculus Rift compatibility for the PS4, It would be a smart move if they could make their brand as a cheaper alternative to OR, while allowing it to work with the PS4. This way MS can't sign a contract with them to exclusively work for X1.

Very interesting. Oculus Rift has been looking very promising lately.. A PS4 version could be awesome. Instead of MS's idea of IllumiRoom to simulate peripheral vision for FPS games, you could literally have peripheral vision in a game. Now the only problem is the eye strain involved with OR and I'm guessing Sony's VR.. headaches:

Half-Life 2 sounded amazing from what he wrote, but you'll most likely have a headache after the first hour that won't go away.

 

oh.. and we have this:

The game is so realistic that players are warned not to lean on virutal objects. lmao! XD I can imagine myself leaning forward and spilling my glass of water all over my laptop. XD

Thats a shame. It looked like it was going to be integrated into the kinect initially. I was really excited for it too. It was probably the main thing that got me excited about the new Xbox. Maybe next, next gen. :(

Yeah, but imagine in a generation or two it might become so much more and better, almost Holodeck like. I see this eventually becoming just straight projection with no TV involved. I also see competition arising from the concept. Sony will definitely be in the fray. In fact within the next 4 generations of console gaming, I predict Nintendo becoming strictly handheld, keeping its titles 1st part on that platform while licensing it out 3rd party for consoles, and perhaps even taking the lead on this holo tech as a 3rd party peripheral, while Google enters the console gaming market with Driodsole! XD

I'd imagine Amazon's console would be totally digital and all purchases would be download only. I don't see them spending money on hard copies so they will have to wait for the right gen to put that into place or at least close to it. They could be the company that makes it the standard. I could see Amazon and Google teaming up for a console on this one. Google would fund the hardware, while Amazon would manage the store and acquiring the intellectual property licensing. They would split the profits evenly while each would do what they do best in contracting. I wouldn't be surprised if Google had Samsung build the hardware for them. Samsung is behind the tech of Illumiroom after all.

This headset should be interesting. If Sony allows third parties to make this accessory, then Oculous Rift could be a potential alternative to the official Sony brand. Along with Valve supposedly making their own VR hardware for their Steam Machines, Xbox One seems like the odd man out.

I skimmed through articles today that had Xbox One rumored to get its own VR. 

 

Now if you really want to talk about The Odd Man Out that would be the Wii U as VR would probably be hard to use with a mandatory touch screen.

I think this accessory is far better than Kinect or Move. Its geared toward gaming and not a gimmick. The only question is how much will it cost? Will there be tiered models? The allowance of 3rd party would be big, because Turtle Beach would make one with their headset quality included.
