PS4 virtual reality headset unveil set for GDC 2014

Sony will unveil its PS4 virtual reality headset during GDC 2014 in March, according to an “inside source”.

According to a new source who claims to have spent some time with the PS4 virtual reality headset, Sony is preparing to launch the Oculus Rift rival next month.

Originally, Sony’s virtual reality headset was expected to make an official appearance at the Tokyo Game Show, but sadly never surfaced.

However, apparently Sony made the decision to delay the VR headset deliberately in order to launch it as a final prototype, rather than releasing editions of the device like with the Oculus Rift.

“Sony has deliberately taken its time to tweak and polish the headset before revealing it,” said TechRadar’s anonymous sources.

So now the plan seems to be to launch the PS4 VR headset at GDC 2014, which is held in San Francisco from March 17. This will be ahead of some VR software announcements at E3 2014 in June.

From what the source has seen so far, it seems Sony has quite the VR headset up its sleeve.

“The quality and resolution are really, really good. People will definitely be impressed with what Sony’s built.”

Sony obviously has a lot of exciting announcements planned between now and E3 in June.

According to industry insider, Ahsan Rasheed, Sony will have some news on brand new PS4 IPs to share with us in the near future.

Apparently, incoming PS4 announcements will feature new Drive Club footage, Uncharted 4 and The Last Guardian as well as a new IP from Killzone: Shadow Fall developer Guerrilla Games.
