With manufacturers and developers all currently clamouring to make headlines at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2015 in San Francisco, California, USA this week, Sony Computer Entertainment’s (SCE) announcement on Tuesday of their latest version of Project Morpheus has been met with positive feedback from the industry and consumers alike.
The following day, two SCE insiders continued to push the momentum forward with back to back tweets encouraging any virtual reality (VR) developers to get in touch or anyone else who might be able to contribute to Project Morpheus. Guy Richards a third party production manager from SCE tweeted on Wednesday: “Big up the Morpheus announcements from GDC last night! If any VR devs want to get in touch with Sony let us know!” followed by Shahid Kamal Ahmad a Playstation Strategic Content Speaker “I’d add to Guy’s message that even if you’re not currently a VR dev, but think you can bring something to the party, let us know!”
With the new VR experiences including London Heist from SCE London Studio being only a handful of demos shown, SCE are keen to attract more developers to Playstation 4 (PS4) and Project Morpheus to further enhance the platform and add to the variety to the software line up for further shows like E3 and the eventual release date in the first half of 2016.
VRFocus will continue to follow Project Morpheus’ progress closely, reporting back with any further updates on the kit.
