Project Morpheus PS4 VR – Possible Release Details Leaked
Sony’s VR headset for the PlayStation 4, Project Morpheus, has gathered some very positive feedback from both media and reluctant gamers that tested the unit. Not much information has been shared regarding a specific release date and price though. An Austrian retailer revealed a few details with a listing for Project Morpheus, which might or might not be accurate.
The VR headset has been listed with a Q2 2016 release window and the price equivalent of $450. The price does seem a bit steep, and probably a bit too much for the average PS4 user to spend on a peripheral for the system, but that’s not to say that it’s unjustifiable, as the unit seems to have some premium quality in both its construction as well as the specs of its panels.
Sony will likely share more details regarding Project Morpheus during its E3 2015 press conference on June 15, where a probable final model will be demonstrated as well as a specific release date and price.
You can check out a screenshot of the listing below:
Sony’s E3 2015 Press Conference, will be held at 6:30 PM PDT on Monday, June 15. The event itself will take place at the L.A. Memorial Sports Arena in Los Angeles.
Sony did not reveal any more details, but there will surely be a ton of announcements and some very exciting surprises. While No Man’s Sky and Tearaway: Unfolded are two titles known to be making an appearance, other projects are likely to share the spotlight.
A new Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End gameplay footage is likely to be shown, which will demonstrate what Naughty Dog has achieved since the PlayStation Experience, where the incredible gameplay demo wowed the audience. Guerilla’s open world RPG is probably going to be revealed with hopefully some beautiful gameplay, and we might get a teaser of Sucker Punch‘ new title. We can hope for a PS4 God of War announcement as well.
Insomniac will give us a glimpse of the Ratchet & Clank reboot title for the PS4, which is a re-imagining of the franchise set to release alongside the movie in 2016. We will likely get a better look at Project Morpheus, along with a few VR optimised titles, and probably a release date for the device.
The new title from Quantic Dream should most definitely be revealed, which will surely be something to look forward to, as their Dark Sorcerer demo at E3 2013 was truly something spectacular and demonstrated the potential of the PlayStation 4 hardware in the capable hands of the Quantic Dream studio, led by the visionary David Cage.
We will bring you any new information on Project Morpheus, Sony and E3 2015 as soon as it becomes available.
