The market for virtual reality games and accessories isn’t really that crowded. At the moment, the only companies that have the most presence would include the Oculus VR with their Oculus Rift and the Virtuix Omni treadmill. Sony plans to join this select group of companies with their own VR headset – Project Morpheus.

The headset was unveiled today at the annual Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, California. The announcement was made by Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studio head Shuhei Yoshida.

Project Morpheus is still in its prototype stages and details about the device is still not fully disclosed yet, but PlayStation’s R&D engineer Richard Marks gave a few details about the HUD during his speech at the event. According to Marks, the device will require a high-resolution screen and will feature a custom built camera for tracking, binaural tech (which is still currently in development) for its audio component and Sony’s DualShock for controllers.

Sony adds that the company is now talking to a number of game developers to build games that are compatible with Project Morpheus including Epic Games and Crytek.
