Project Morpheus, Sony’s answer to the Oculus Rift’s monopoly on virtual reality, has been receiving a lot of positive feedback from developers and journalists alike, and Just Cause and Mad Max developer, Avalanche Studios is no different. Having played with the device, Linus Blomberg, Chief Technology Officer at Avalanche Studios said:
…it’s really impressive from a technical perspective and everyone I’ve met that has experienced it has said it’s mind-blowing.
Avalanche founder and creative director Christofer Sundberg elaborated in Edge magazine, that he believed certain game such as Battlefield may work well with Project Morpheus, but he believes that driving games would be ‘absolutely fantastic’, and he’s probably right. Sony has been showing off a star-fighter-esque demo at industry events, which is said to be one of the most perfect demonstrations for the player, because you are in a cockpit, in a seated position, which is essentially how you will play most, if not all, VR games. So a racing game has the same set up.
We can’t wait to get our hands on this device once and for all, hopefully there’s something good announced at E3 2014 about Project Morpheus.
