A whole new world

Apart from a few demos behind closed doors, Sony's virtual reality headset Project Morpheus was notably absent from the Japanese giant's E3 presence this year. If the nifty piece of tech's no-show has you worried that the firm has completely forgotten about it, you've no need to fear. In a recent interview with The Guardian, Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Andrew House assured us that supporting the device is absolutely a priority.

"It’s definitely more than an experiment. We’ve made some commitments; we’re putting significant investment into the product," the executive said. "We think there’s something there that could be really, really interesting for a next frontier of game development.” It's unclear what these sorts of investments might mean, but we suspect that we'll be finding out in due time.

Intriguingly, House also mentioned that the company's initial experimentation in the area was a response to developer demand. “It struck me that if there’s a variety of game developers showing interest in this space, then it’s probably time to jump in and see if we can play a part and give them the tools that they’re looking for,” he said.
