Sony’s new Project Morpheus prototype
One year later, Sonys new Morpheus prototype is still VR done right. Improved specs are nice, but PlayStation Move firefights really impress. While no prices or bundling details were announced, the device’s improved specs were outlined by SonyWorldwide Studios president Shu Yoshida. The screen is now an OLED display at 1920 x RGB x 1080, which Yoshida said means low persistence and removing motion blur from the old LCD. The device’s screen is 5.7 inches, which is large enough for a 100 degree field of view. And the new design includes nine LED trackers to provide 360 degree tracking, according to Sony.
I’m getting more and more excited about the prospect of getting my hands on the Morpheus. Right now, if I had the choice of buying the consumer models of either the Morpheus or the Rift I’d be picking the Morpheus. Given how well the device is going to sync with the PS4 right out of the box, it’s a pretty compelling option.
