Oculus Rift Beats Project Morpheus For Innovation of the Year

The Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD) for PC and Project Morpheus HMD for PlayStation 4 aren’t really seen as rivals at this early stage in the VR industry’s revival. In fact, it’s only in award ceremonies that the two are truly being pitted against each other. Today sees the Oculus Rift secure another win over the Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) made device.


The Oculus Rift has received the Innovation of the Year award at the 2014 Golden Joystick Awards in London, UK. Oculus VR’s Callum Underwood was on hand to pick up the award. The HMD also beat out the likes of Microsoft’s Kinect 20 sensor and ever SCE’s own Remote Play concept for the award.

The Oculus Rift is currently available for developers as a second generation development kit (DK2). Recently Oculus VR debuted a new Crescent Bay prototype version of the device. A release date for the consumer version of the kit is yet to be revealed. VRFocus will continue to follow both the Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus closely, reporting back with any further updates on both.
