Sony's Project Morpheus update: Sony still haven't confirmed release date


While Sony’s Project Morpheus VR accessory is officially coming, Sony has yet to decide when they will release the device to the world.

In an interview with GameSpot, Sony’s head of worldwide studios Shuhei Yoshida shared why Project Morpheus did not receive much attention during the E3 2015. He also disclosed plans for the upcoming VR device.

“When we spend more than two minutes on anything other than core gamers’ games, [people] hate it,” he explained.

When asked about the progress of the Project Morpheus, he said that the project is going very well. In fact, they just presented 20 games playable on E3, and that they had to turn down game submissions to make way for what they were planning for the device.

However, they are not yet sure when users can get their hands on the Project Morpheus.

“The hardware is on schedule. Lots of games are being created. Some we are showing will hit the launch date that we haven’t decided as of yet. So it’s going really well,” he said. 

That leaves only a placeholder year, as Sony previously confirmed that a consumer release would come on 2016.

Previously, the Project Morpheus was posted on an Austrian pre-order site. The listing priced the Project Morpheus at 399 euros ($450), claiming that it will be available Q2 2016. The listing was shortly taken down.

Project Morpheus is a head-mounted display that has two screensone for each eyewith a resolution of 980 x 1080 each. It features a 5.7-inch 1920 x 1280 OLED display. Display refresh and frame rates go at 120Hz and 120 fps, respectively, with a minimum latency of 18ms. With this, Project Morpheus is set to provide a flawless and seamless gaming experience.

As for its supported titles and games, the Project Morpheus won’t be short of possible titles, as PlayStation 4 offers a lot of games that will surely work well with the device’s Virtual Reality technology. Some of the announced titles that will be available for Project Morpheus include Among The Sleep, ARK: Survival Evolved, GNOG, and Project CARS.
