Have you been waiting for the developments on Sony’s VR project? The long wait is finally over. Sony will be hosting a technical session at the 2015 Game Developers Conference (GDC) with regards to their recent development efforts for the Project Morpheus, a virtual reality project that is expected to leverage the PlayStation’s ecosystem and its VR capabilities.

Sony will be bringing the Project Morpheus to the table one more time as it will discuss updates to its development for the past year. Attendees to the GDC 2015 expect to hear about the new applications of Project Morpheus to the PlayStation gaming console. Entitled “Beyond Immersion – Project Morpheus and PlayStation”, the session will be presented by three presenters, namely Chris Norden, Developer Support Engineer; Jed Ashforth, Game Designer; and Nicholas Doucet, Game Producer.

According to the GDC website, the description of the technical session says, “This session will focus on updates since last year’s Project Morpheus GDC presentation, and will give developers new information about creative opportunities when designing VR experiences for PlayStation 4. Topics covered will include updated game design information, the use of PlayStation peripherals in VR, and the unique social experiences possible only with Project Morpheus.” Clearly, Sony is focused to deliver the most current information on the Morpheus VR headset to game developers, most especially for those working with the PlayStation ecosystem.

It can be recalled that the Project Morpheus was unveiled during the last year’s Game Developers Conference. Many tech enthusiasts have rejoiced to the fact that Sony is joining the VR bandwagon, most specially due to the fact that Sony is a giant tech company and has established itself in the industry of mainstream gaming and entertainment. But ever since the project’s inception last year, the company did not release further incremental news updates as to such development efforts until the upcoming 2015 GDC. Aside from a few gaming titles to support the Project Morpheus, such as the nDreams game “The Assembly” that was demoed during the last year’s E3 conference, there were no other information for the past year regarding the VR headset except for its table of specifications.
