Sony have a very interesting year ahead of them. In fact, the departure of Uncharted 4 to Spring 2016, is more likely to bring additional surprises for PS4 owners. Therefore, we can expect a lot from them at their E3 conference in 2015, we might even see the likes of God of War 4 get a release date for 2015!
But with Uncharted 4 departing into next year, the Christmas season is going to need some great purchases available for PS4 owners. Therefore, we're sure that we can see the likes of [No Man's Sky](tag:2684052) in the third quarter of this year, as this Australian magazine revealed. But will we also see Project Morpheus support for the indie title too?
Project Morpheus & No Man's Sky
Project Morpheus is to be Sony's entry into the world of virtual reality. The prototype was unveiled at GDC earlier this year, and included an OLED 1920x1080 display, with each eye seeing 960x1080. It will allegedly be capable of displaying at 120fps. It features a high FOV, 6DOF head-tracking, stereoscopic 3D, and unwarped output to a TV for others to view what the user sees.
BUT, will I get sick? That's the winning question for all of these headsets. Valve have promised that motion sickness has been tested on their device and came back with a 0% probability. Can Sony promise the same thing? We'll have to wait and see. The release date for the headset is not officially revealed, though will apparently be available in Spring of 2016. E3 will have some great stuff to show us!
If there's one game that Sony has announced that would suit the use of this headset though, it's No Man's Sky. This first person adventure through space seems almost destined to be compatible with Project Morpheus. Can you imagine exploring this colourful universe with virtual reality? Has anyone actually tried out VR headsets yet? I can't wait to try it out at Gamescom later this year!
We all have our dreams for No Man's Sky. Sean Murray and Hello Games have created a world that seems to have endless possibilities. This marketing strategy may in turn hurt the game on its release date, because we all have pretty incredible imaginations. We can see this game going places that it never will, and I hope that won't affect its reception with fans.
Could the Xbox One See No Man's Sky?
Project Morpheus will never touch an XBOX One title, but will No Man's Sky ever go beyond its PS4 and PC exclusives? "Unless a title can never come to Xbox, because a developer has signed a publishing deal with someone else, any title can come to [email protected]" Agostino Simonetta, European boss of the [email protected] program, said this earlier this week in an interview with Eurogamer.
A lot of people feel like it means that No Man's Sky may only be a timed exclusive title for the PS4 and PC. We may eventually see it make its way to the XBOX , but it's very uncertain at this time.
So what do you think gamers? Are you excited about the arrival of virtual reality to gaming on the PS4 and Xbox One? Can you think of a more perfect title for Project Morpheus than No Man's Sky? What are your desires for Hello Games' upcoming title? Let us know in the comments!
