Project Morpheus Coming to TGS
Last week saw Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) showcase a new demo for its Project Morpheus virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD) at a pre-Tokyo Game Show (TGS) press conference, named Summer Lesson. Though only a demo, this was the biggest spot the device had been given at one of SCE’s press briefings so far. Now the company has confirmed that the device itself will be playable at TGS 2014 when it runs from 18th – 21st September 2014.
Project Morpheus’ presence was confirmed as SCE announced its TGS 2014 line up, which was announced this week. Specifically which titles will be playable with the device is yet to be announced, although it’s a good bet that Summer Lesson will debut alongside some of the tech demo staples that the company has used thus far including The Deep and Street Luge. Other titles confirmed for SCE’s TGS line up include the likes of Bloodborne and The Order: 1886.
Project Morpheus was revealed in March 2014 as a prototype. The current version of the kit includes a 1080p LCD screen and positional tracking using the PlayStation 4’s camera peripheral. A consumer-focused version of the device is yet to be revealed. VRFocus will continue to follow the kit’s progress going forward, reporting back with any further updates on its development.
