Jimmy Fallon Shows Off Project Morpheus' Potential for Multiplayer Mayhem
Posted by Kell Andersen
Two headsets are better than one
Project Morpheus, Sony's impressive new VR headset, is growing more and more real with every passing day. And with E3 looming large on the horizon, the Japanese giant recently decided to show off the new peripheral on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Oh, and if you don't care about fancy and expensive cameras, just go ahead and skip to the 1:48 mark.
In the clip, both Fallon and popular actor Channing Tatum don the dapper device, and are promptly plunged deep into a fantasy world. The excitable host then proceeds to repeatedly slap a nearby enemy in the face. It's truly a sight to behold, and an example of the sorts of innovative gameplay Sony's newest project will be capable of creating. We're kidding, of course, but the video does do a good job of demonstrating the nifty tech.
Obviously, the point of this demo is to give the audience an idea of what virtual reality is all about, not to impress it with mind blowing software. Indeed, there's nothing particularly new or interesting about the fantasy title that the two intrepid test subjects are playing. However, the concept of multiple people using separate headsets at the same time is definitely intriguing, and has the potential to offer some truly unique experiences.
