The Movie God   |  

Sony's Project Morpheus

The news that Facebook has acquired Oculus VR, makers of the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, for $2 billion has many who were excited by the product in a frenzy of disappointment and doubt. But, whether you think the acquisition was a bad move or you’re still optimistic about the Oculus, there are other VR products on the way to keep an eye on. Sony, for example, has one currently being developed for their PlayStation 4 called Project Morpheus, and they’re currently showing the technology off at the 2014 Game Developers Conference.

The company, quite smartly, has released a pair of new videos showing off Project Morpheus.

Oculus Rift VR Headset

What just happened?!

It’s being reported that Facebook—you know, that little social media site that legally owns your soul—has purchased Oculus VR, the company that makes the highly anticipated virtual reality headset the Oculus Rift, for around half the price that Disney paid for Lucasfilm, a grand total of $2 billion.

The Oculus Rift has been making huge waves for its ability to make you feel like you’re somewhere you’re not, such as a movie theater, but it’s especially anticipated in the realms of video games, where the headset looks to be the VR accessory gamers have been waiting for. A quick visit to YouTube and you can see thousands of videos showing off what the Rift can do, and how it will look with most compatible games.
