Will Mirror's Edge 2 Make You Puke with PS4 Peripheral Project Morpheus?

Posted by Sammy Barker

Don't look down

The original Mirror’s Edge worked incredibly hard to put you in free-runner Faith’s shoes, employing numerous animations to make you feel like you were sprinting across rooftops and balancing on narrow beams. This level of first-person immersion seems like a perfect fit for virtual reality, with Project Morpheus presumably set to release right around the same time as hotly anticipated sequel Mirror’s Edge 2. Alas, is developer DICE even considering including support for the popular PlayStation 4 peripheral?

“Everyone says, you should just add it to Mirror's Edge,” studio gaffer Karl-Magnus Troedsson told, adding that in reality the feature is likely to cause players to projectile vomit like that man out of Monty Python. “There's a guy who did it and he says it himself: after a while this is a bit overwhelming. You have vertigo and first-person movement. How many people of the population out there wouldn't throw up when they played that?”

Nevertheless, the studio does have small teams working on virtual reality, and there’s a chance that the company could incorporate the functionality for those at least brave enough to try it. “Naturally it would be great if we could have that support for Mirror's Edge, but it would never become a mass market thing,” he concluded. “Well, I can't see that now at least. Would it be cool? Absolutely! Do I want to play it? Yes! Maybe for five minutes at a time!” We sense that a new generation of drinking games are right around the corner.

I don't have any interest in the game but if its available on Morpheus then that changes everything.

I'd absolutely love to play this game with morpheus! Assuming it's comfortable and all of course.

This would be a great way to showcase Sonys new VR headset. Mirrors Edge was a great game and what better way to experience VR than playing the second iteration with Sonys new tech strapped to our heads. Bring on the puke buckets.

"it would be great if we could have that support for Mirror's Edge, but it would never become a mass market thing" well at least it was qualified with "Well, I can't see that now at least" when I first read it it made me think of statements like:

"Telephone’ has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a means of communication and has no value to us.” - @Western Union, 1878

"The Radio has no imaginable commercial value. Who would pay for a message sent to no one in particular?”- @David Sarnoff 1921

"Television won’t hold any market it captures after 6 months. People will get tired of staring at a plywood box every night.” - Darryl Zanuck 1946

"There is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home." - Ken Olsen, 1977

I figure when it comes to new technology do it and let the public decide.
