One of the big news stories to come out of GDC last week was PS4 virtual reality headset Project Morpheus.

The tech is still in prototype and a commercial release is likely some way off, but with VR going mainstream thanks to Facebook's acquisition of Oculus VR, Sony will be hoping VR really is the future of gaming and home entertainment.

"Our current prototype for Project Morpheus features a head mounted display with 1080p resolution and a 90 degree field of view. Accelerometer and gyroscope sensors built into the head mounted unit as well as PlayStation Camera accurately tracks head orientation and movement, so as your head rotates, the image of the virtual world rotates intuitively in real-time," explained Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida.

"Project Morpheus also features our new 3D audio technology that re-creates stereoscopic sounds in all directions and changes in real-time depending on your head orientation. In addition to PlayStation Camera, Project Morpheus works with DUALSHOCK 4 Wireless Controller and PlayStation Move to deliver an easy-to-use, plug-and-play VR experience."
