The gaming and electronics company announced Tuesday at the Game Developers Conference that its VR system nicknamed Project Morpheus will debut in the first half of 2016. Sony Corp. originally unveiled a prototype of the headset at last year’s gathering of video game developers. The headset works in tandem with Sony’s PlayStation 4 console and camera by covering users’ vision and simulating virtual worlds on screen.
The Japanese electronics giant talked about its upcoming game console for the first time and said it will go on sale this holiday season. But Sony didn’t reveal the device itself. Presenters played games that were projected on screens in a converted opera house, but the PlayStations themselves were hidden backstage throughout Wednesday evening’s two-hour event.
