A new dimension of gaming is, at long last, here – and PlayStation is again at the forefront with Project Morpheus.
Meanwhile, Sony also stressed on its user friendly design, featuring a single band design and quick release button. The headband supports the weight of the unit on the top of your head, hence there is no pressure on your face. Other components have also been adjusted and configured to make the headset lighter, so players do not find the headset cumbersome or uncomfortable to use.
Sony says more details on the new Project Morpheus will be revealed at E3 and Beyond, along with more VR games.
