Two GI Editors Discuss VR And Project Morpheus

Sony surprised gamers at GDC when it revealed Morpheus, a VR headset that the company hopes will compete with Oculus Rift. Game Informer editors Kimberley Wallace and Jeff Marchiafava tried out the new peripheral and discuss their first VR experiences, along with what impact they think Morpheus will have on the industry.

Jeff: So despite all the hoopla over virtual reality this year, neither of us had any experience with a modern VR headset until we tried out Morpheus. We each got to try two demos: I did a space shooter named Valkyrie, you did a street luge game just called Luge, and we both tried what was kind of a medieval combat simulator called Castle. What did you think?

Kim: I wasn't sure what to expect. Experiencing anything with VR is definitely different...it takes you right into that world. Our demos were short, only six minutes, and I don't think I'd be able to stay with a game too long. But it's really cool to be able to reach into the world and grab a sword and use it. The immersive features are great, but they can be a bit overwhelming. For instance, the first time I crashed into a car in Street Luge, I startled because it felt so real.
