E3 2014 is now a distant memory and Gamescom 2014 in Germany is already nearing its halfway point this week. But as industry fans will know, there’s still one more major videogame event to take place in 2014. That event is the Tokyo Game Show (TGS), this year taking place on 18th – 21st September. Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) traditionally has a strong presence at the event and this year it could end up showing its Project Morpheus virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD).
That is according to SCE head of worldwide studios Shuhei Yoshida. Speaking in a recent interview with popular Japanese publication Famitsu, and translated by Gematsu, Yoshida revealed that the company is yet to determine if Project Morpheus will be exhibited at TGS 2014. That said, Yoshida apparently expressed that he would personaly like to show it off. Could we see new Project Morpheus announcements at the event?
The prospect of seeing VR’s impact in Japan is an exciting one. The US-based Oculus Rift VR HMD creator Oculus VR has in the past attended events in the country, and certain Japanese developers have submitted creations to the Oculus VR Share platform. SCE usually hosts yet another show at TGS, although its size and significance varies from year to year. A specific time and date for any such showing this year is yet to be announced.
VRFocus will continue to follow both the Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus going forward, reporting back with any further updates.
