New Project Morpheus Shooter Uses PlayStation Move as Gun

Many want to see a diverse range of videogames in virtual reality (VR) at this year’s E3 in Los Angeles, California. One of the most requested genres is of course the first-person shooter (FPS). The VR community is yet to see a truly mainstream FPS release but it looks like Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) might be revealing something along those lines at its press conference tonight.

A Wired article taking an in-depth look at Project Morpheus has surfaced online with images of a new title that can be seen below. According to the article, the player uses the PlayStation Move motion controller embedded in SCE’s official gun-shaped peripheral, the Sharpshooter, to blast giant spiders on an alien planet. It is said to be a demo created by Head of Impulse Gear, Seth Luisi. The title is reportedly just a demo and isn’t an official experience.

VR fans are expect to hear much more about Project Morpheus at the show tonight. The current prototype for the kit boasts a 1080p OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The consumer version of the device, which will hopefully be revealed at the show, is set to launch in the first half of next year.

VRFocus will continue to follow any and all videogames for Project Morpheus reporting back with the latest updates on them.
