Sony has given a name to its long-rumored VR headset -- Project Morpheus.
A prototype version of the hardware was revealed March 18 during a Sony-sponsored GDC 2014 session, "Driving the Future of Innovation." The session was led by Shuhei Yoshida, president of SCE Worldwide Studios, and featured Sony senior software engineer Anton Mikhailov and SCEA R&D director Richard Marks.
Marks' involvement is unsurprising -- his name was prominently attached to both the PlayStation EyeToy and the PlayStation Move motion control system, as well as the DualShock 4, and Project Morpheus utilizes the same motion tracking technology.
Yoshida opened the talk by lauding the value he finds in attending GDC, claiming that it was a useful way for him to get a "snapshot" of what's coming next in the game industry. To hear him tell it, virtual reality is where the industry is headed.
