Coming Soon: Virtual Reality Gaming Headsets

A handful of big announcements have surfaced at this year’s Game Developer’s Conference (GDC) in San Francisco. Among the fanfare, two Virtual Reality (VR) headsets have been demonstrated. One such device is the Oculus Rift headset (shown above) from Oculus VR. This product has been hyped by gamers for a while now. It provides developers with an interface to virtually immerse the player in the game. However, Sony appears to want part of this action too. The company just unveiled their own VR headset known as Project Morpheus (shown below). needless to say, this will be a competing product to Oculus Rift and will likely be bundled with Sony’s PlayStation console. While the technology seems remarkably close to store shelves, exact release dates are still unknown. Some say it may be as soon as this year.
