Sony Computer Entertainment has suggested that it could one day developer a wireless version of its Project Morpheus virtual reality (VR) headset for PlayStation 4. Senior game designer Jed Ashforth stated as much at a recent press event for the headset, suggesting that the company would ‘never say never’ about such an iteration. For now, that current device remain tethered to the PlayStation 4 as it is used.
Ashforth made the comments to The Guardian. SCE had previously revealed that other solutions to the device’s connection to the console would be ‘investigated’. The company is yet to offer an update on how the device might change, though it’s still a little under 2 months since it was first unveiled at the Game Developers Conference 2014.
Project Morpheus currently links to a processing unit that allows the PlayStation 4 to project an image both inside the headset and on screen so that others can see what they see. A wireless version of the device would have to incorporate this unit somehow without actually physically connecting to the console itself. Other wireless headsets such as the GameFace pack the entirety of their hardware inside the device.
Could Sony reveal a wireless Project Morpheus down the line? VRFocus will continue to follow the headset and bring you any more news and updates on it.
