Sony's own virtual reality headset is nearing completion, with Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida revealing to The Wall Street Journal
that the headset is nearing 85% completion.
Yoshida would not say when the headset would launch, nor would he comment on its price. He did add that a bulk of Project Morpheus' components are also found in smartphones, which would drive the device's price down. For reference, the current Oculus Rift prototype is available to anyone at a price point of $350USD.
Sony announced Project Morpheus at GDC in March as a VR headset that offers a 1080p display with a 90 degree field of view and full 360 degrees of head tracking. Sony will use Project Morpheus to compete for attention in the virtual reality space with Oculus VR, which was purchased by Facebook in March for $2 billion.
