Sony PlayStation VR

Sony PlayStation VR, previously known by the codename Project Morpheus, is an upcoming virtual reality head-mounted display produced by Sony Computer Entertainment. It is designed to be fully functional with the PlayStation 4 video game system. It is currently a prototype and has no confirmed release date, although Sony has scheduled its launch for the first half of 2016.

The prototype revealed at GDC’15 included an OLED 1920×1080 pixel display (providing 960×1080 px resolution per eye) with an RGB subpixel matrix, and is capable of displaying content at 120fps. It features a FOV of 100°, 6DOF head-tracking, stereoscopic 3D, and unwarped output to a TV, either for others to view what the headset wearer sees, or a separate display to compete against the headset user using a standard PS4 controller.


The Sony PlayStation VR 4 console is designed to display games on big flatscreen TVs. But come next summer, you’ll be able to add a virtual reality headset and explore game worlds in a full 360 degrees. It’s called PlayStation VR.

Like the Oculus​ Rift and HTC Vi​ve, the other two high-profile virtual reality systems you should expect to see on shelves in 2016, the Sony PlayStation VR is a tethered headset that uses special curved lenses to magnify and stretch a 5.7-inch screen across your field of vision.

Like those other headsets, it also uses a host of sensors to tell which way your head is pointing at all times. That way, no matter where you look (even if you turn around and look behind you), you see the portion of a virtual world that you’d
expect to see if you were actually there, looking at it with your own eyes.

PlayStation VR, known by the codename Project Morpheus during development, is a virtual reality gaming head-mounted display developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment and manufactured by Sony, scheduled to launch on October 13, 2016. It is designed to be fully functional with the PlayStation 4 home video game console.
