Video: Watch Sony's Yoshida unveil Project Morpheus at GDC 2014
Last week Sony formally unveiled
its long-rumored VR headset and gave it a name: Project Morpheus.
A prototype version of the hardware was revealed during a Sony-sponsored GDC 2014 session, “Driving the Future of Innovation,” and today Sony published the full video of the presentation online for anyone to watch.
The session, led by SCE Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida and featuring Sony senior software engineer Anton Mikhailov and SCEA R&D director Richard Marks, was an hour long and featured a mix of storytelling, product advertising and discussion of some of the challenges Sony engineers faced in building -- and developing games for -- a VR headset.
It's worth watching if you missed the news last week, and even if you didn't it's worth skipping ahead to Mikhailov's presentation -- starting at about the 25:30 mark -- to get more technical details about Sony's current Morpheus dev kit and what the SCEA R&D team learned while trying to develop attractive VR experiences.
