Sony Has ‘a lot of extremely cool, super-secret stuff’ for Project Morpheus

It’s anyone’s guess as to when Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) will reveal more information on its Project Morpheus virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD) for the PlayStation 4. The company revealed the device back in March 2014 at the Game Developers Conference (GDC), but has since kept quiet about it, aside from a few nods at preess conferences. Concern has been raised about SCE’s commitment to the device, but according to SCE’s Worldwide Studio Immersive Technology Group Senior Game Designer Jed Ashforth, there’s a lot of ‘super-secret stuff’ in the pipeline for the device.

Ashforth said as much in a recent interview with Virtual Reality Reviewer. Speaking on the site’s 20 questions feature, Ashforth revealed that: “On the Morpheus side, there’s a lot of extremely cool, super-secret stuff that I’ve tried and that I’d love to be able to tell you about, but we’re not at the point where we’re ready to share them yet.” The tease came after Ashforth revealed that indie developer Drash’s Titans of Space was currently his favourite demo for the Oculus Rift HMD on PC.

Currently there are very few full videogames confirmed for Project Morpheus, the most high profile of which is arguably EVE: Valkyrie from CCP Games. SCE has revealed a number of tech demos throughout 2014, the most prominent of which have been from the SCE London Studio, which is responsible for both The Deep and Street Luge experiences. Of course, Ashforth’s quote doesn’t specifically state videogames; he could also be talking about the likes of input control and other such details.

With many of the industry’s major events now out of the way for 2014, it will likely be some time in 2015 that an update on Project Morpheus is given. VRFocus will continue to follow the device closely, reporting back with any further updates on its development.

  1. You wrote: “The company revealed the device back in March 2014 at the Game Developers Conference (GDC), but has since kept quiet about it, aside from a few nods at preess conferences. Concern has been raised about SCE’s commitment to the device…”

    Are you forgetting the big demo station they were running at E3? They were showing off Morpheus in a big way with thousands of people being able to demo a number of VR demos on offer.

    So not really accurate at all here…

  2. I appreciate the great job you have been doing since the vr thing started a few years ago. I’m 61 and remember in my 20’s I said to my brother who is in the computer business when is vr going to happen? He said within 5 years. Well finally it’s happening over 30 years later. I’m like a kid. I can’t wait. I love all kind of games including 1st person (call of duty etc) u can bet i’m getting samsung vr gear even though it’s limited technology wise. Oculus rift sold. Sony vr sold. My money is ready. Please continue doing a great job!!!
