Sony are holding a big event in Las Vegas on Saturday the 6th of December, 2014, dubbed Playstation Experience. While Street Fight V has already leaked, very little else is known about what to expect.
What I think is going to be the showcase piece is Project Morpheus. We might get a release date, it is already known that attendees will get to experience the headset at the event. Sony wouldn’t allow the general public and judgemental game blogging media to get their hands on it if it were not close to completion.
We might also see a whole bunch of AAA titles being mentioned with support for Morpheus and a 2015 release date. Imagine if Street Fighter itself will support the VR headset? That would be massive. I would be willing to bet that Sony is going to go hard on its VR headset, possibly beating Oculus to market with a wider range of games and possibly at an affordable price-point.
Apparently Sony has an announcement being dubbed an Overwatch style announcement named after Blizzard recently announced their first new IP in 17 years an MMO called Overwatch.
The thing is, nobody saw Overwatch coming, it was a completely unexpected and big announcement. Whatever it is Sony has planned, it must be quite big and unexpected. Perhaps it could be announcement that Morpheus is going on sale in time for Christmas?
One game being released in 2015 for PS4 is the hotly anticipated No Mans Sky a space exploration game. Not only does it look great, but if the announcement tomorrow at the event is No Mans Sky supporting the Project Morpheus virtual reality headset, people are going to lose their shit.
Arguably one of the scariest games ever made, Silent Hill is currently in development and was announced a few months ago to be called Silent Hills. There are rumours that this new game could come out with full Morpheus VR support, but time will tell.
Could you imagine a Silent Hill game with a virtual reality headset? That would be scary as and at the same time, really cool.
I am in Vegas on the weekend, so I might try and make the event on Sunday and see what the fuss is all about and try out Morpheus myself.
