Sony Computer Entertainment Japan (SCEJ) had a big surprise for virtual reality (VR) fans at its Tokyo Game Show (TGS) 2015 press conference today. The company reintroduced its Project Morpheus head-mounted display (HMD) for PlayStation 4 with a brand new name, PlayStation VR. The company made the announcement a few days ahead of when TGS actually gets underway, with the kit available to play on the show floor. The reveal was accompanied with a brand new trailer for the kit. Said trailer can now be seen below.
Lasting nearly 2 minutes, the clip showcases a number of titles that have been confirmed for PlayStation VR. These include RIGS: Mechanised Combat League from Guerrilla Cambridge, The Deep and London Heist from SCE London Studio, and The Playroom VR, which sees other players use DualShock 4 controllers and a standard display to interact with the HMD user.
Outside of first-party development there’s also another look at Summer Lesson from Bandai Namco and Project Diva from SEGA, the latter of which also looks to use the PlayStation Move motion controllers for a dance simulation title.
PlayStation VR is currently preparing to release in the first half of 2016. A final price and release date for the kit is yet to be set. VRFocus will continue to follow the device closely, reporting back with any further updates on its progress.
