At Sony’s GDC keynote today, they announced their Virtual Reality headset, code named Project Morpheus. This headset will rival the Oculus Rift, and will be compatible with the PlayStation 4.

As part of the reveal, Sony showed a first person demo of God of War. They also talked about their six principles for Virtual Reality – sight, sound, tracking, control, ease of use, and content. Sony announced that the following companies are already on board for Project Morpheus: Unity, Havok, Wwise, Gigantic, Autodesk Gameware, Criware, DDD, Silicon Studio, Epic Games, Bitsquid, and Crytek. In addition, they announced that there will be demos on Project Morpheus for both EVE’s Valkyrie and Thief.

Sony also announced that Project Morpheus’ current dev kit supports position and rotation head tracking of 1000 Hz, 360 degrees, and a 3 meter working volume. It also supports forward prediction.

The prototype shown has 4 blue LED lights on it, and look to be using similar technology to PlayStation Move.
