The New PlayStation VR Headset

PlayStation VR
After a year since Sony announced it, the final retail version of the PlayStation VR headset — codenamed Project Morpheus — will plug into a sizable black box before plugging into the PlayStation 4.

The newly-named PlayStation VR, or PSVR, has a head-mounted display with 1080p HD resolution and a 90-degree field of view, while sensors built into the headset track head movements.

Sony has also confirmed the device will go on sale in the first half of 2016.

The firm unveiled the device at last year's Game Developers Conference in San Francisco and has been demonstrating it at the Tokyo Game Show.

At the launch, Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios, said his company had been working on the technology for more than three years.

'This prototype is by no means final,' he said. 'We will continue to work on this to improve it, but we believe it's a good representation of how PlayStation will deliver VR.'

The original model was attached to a PlayStation 4 console with a cord that was approximately 15ft (4.5 meters) long.

However, earlier this year, the PlayStation VR headset was not plug directly into the PlayStation 4. Instead, it plugs into a processing box, which in turn plugs into the PlayStation 4. This allows people to use the TV and PS4 to interact with, or just watch, the person playing their VR game.
