On Tuesday night at GDC, Sony announced the rumored PlayStation 4 virtual reality headset at a press conference. Project Morpheus doesn’t yet have a release date or games, but it sure does look interesting.

According to Polygon, president of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida debuted the headset to the crowd with the aid of prototypes that dated back to 2010. One such demo included a first-person God of War.

“The industry has grown by creating technological advancements for video game players,” Yoshida said. “Advancements that people maybe weren’t expecting or thought was possible.”

The black and white prototype shown off was being introduced to developers at GDC 2014, with the hopes Sony would gain some feedback on Project Morpheus, and whether or not there was a future for the peripheral with the PlayStation console. Richard Marks, senior director of research and development at Sony Computer Entertainment America, added that Project Morpheus was being created with six tenants in mind: sight, sound, tracking, control, ease of use and content.

“We believe Morpheus will further enhance the world of PlayStation 4, with seamless integration with PlayStation Camera and PlayStation Move,” Yoshida added. “We will continue to improve on this prototype by gathering feedback from developers. That’s why we unveiled it at GDC.”

Now that Sony’s VR headset is out in the open, we expect to hear more details concerning its use in the future very soon.
