Project Morpheus to Be 'Affordable Consumer-Grade Device', Says Sony Exec

But no price tag just yet

Virtual reality: a term historically laden with potential, yet mired in empty promises. It's hard to forget the hyperbolic gimmickry that almost completely swallowed the mid-90s, but it's equally hard not to get excited by the potential that the concept holds today – particularly following Sony's recent official...
