While every possible detail on Project Morepheus for PlayStation 4 isn’t available, Sony has given the press enough to satisfy our taste buds,if for but only a moment. Using a 1080p display and just over a 90 degree field of view, Morpheus has positional head tracking, a 1000HZ refresh rate, 3-meter working volume with full 360 degree tracking, support for those who wear eye glasses (and those without), all complete with what is called a “highly adjustable” headpiece, with the option to use custom headphones, which would plug themselves directly into the headset.
Speaking of which, the biaural tech is being developed to allow for spatial sound, as well as support for the DualShock 4, Move, and other forms of PS4 control.
Currently, a developer kit exists, which includes a wired version of the Project Morpheus headset (it’s a 5 meter wire), which needs the PlayStation 4’s camera accessory to coordinate with. Future versions o f Project Morpheus may very well be wireless in order to promote ease-of-use. Meanwhile, Sony already has Crytek (makes of the Crysis game series) and Epic Games (makers of Infinity Blade and Gears of War) working on the headset.
The Game Developers Conference will be much more interesting with Sony making the rounds.
