The next big thing

Sony's always been an innovator in the video game industry. For those of you that haven't been around for the ride, the PSone dragged the medium kicking and screaming into a polygonal era, while the PlayStation 2 introduced all-new technologies like the EyeToy. Even the PlayStation 3 shepherded Blu-ray and the PlayStation Network – things that we take for granted today.

And the PlayStation 4's next bold step revolves around Project Morpheus, which is set to release next year. The virtual reality headset promises to put you inside game worlds, using a combination of motion tracking technology and a high resolution display. And according to Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida, the company needs to experiment with these things to satiate its fans.

"We are here to entertain people," he said as part of the promotional video embedded below. "But we cannot do so without trying new ideas." But how much money will Project Morpheus cost, and how much kit will you need to get started with the device? These are the lingering questions that the Japanese giant must answer, as we already know that the device itself works pretty darn well.
