Project Morpheus had a very feeble showing at this year’s E3, with SONY covering it for only a couple of minutes in its press conference. This is because, despite the project reportedly going “very well”, SONY has not yet decided on a release date. SONY’s Shuhei Yoshida had this to say.
“We have 20 (Project Morpheus) games that are playable at E3. We had to turn down more submissions from both third-parties and first-parties to prioritise what we wanted to show. The hardware is on schedule. Lots of games are being created. Some we are showing will hit the launch date that we haven’t decided as of yet. So it’s going really well.”
But how much will the VR system set gamers back?
“We are not talking about any specific number, but this is a console business. We try to provide the hardware at the lowest possible cost so that more people can come in. And so that developers can make games on to create the market. So we’ll have the same approach.”
Currently, a vague release window of the first half of 2016 has been confirmed, but the actual date itself is not yet set in stone. Stay tuned to Gamespresso to find out the release date as soon as it is reported. Are you excited for Project Morpheus?
