Sony took motion controlled gaming to the next level when it unveiled a slick-looking Oculus Rift competitor at its virtual reality-focused GDC 2014 press conference.
Project Morpheus is the name of the electronics company's long-rumored VR headset for PS4 and its design looks to be straight out of the Tron: Legacy movie.
More than its futuristic-looking black-and-white color scheme that glows hues of blue, it's what is on the inside that counts: a whole new way to experience games and other video content.
The PlayStation company also flashed 13 familiar third-party publishing and developer tool creating partner logos, including ones from heavy-hitters like Epic Games, Crytek, Autodesk and Havok. We're likely to see through the eyes of more game characters down the line.
Beyond first-person perspective video games, Sony is partnering with NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab in order to send gamers to Mars via the Curiosity Rover.
This technology could give PS4 a distinct advantage over Xbox One thanks to its virtual tour of new worlds that would otherwise require players to go through astronaut training and warp 50 years in the future. It's a new wrinkle to the constantly shifting PS4 vs Xbox One debate.
Sony has actually designed head-mounted displays before Project Morpheus including the personal 3D viewer, the Sony HMZ-T3W. But it lacked the head-shifting content that turned with head movement.
Of course, now that Oculus Rift has peaked gamers' interest, Sony is ready to take its existing form factor to another level.
Live by the Terror, Die by the Terror.
