Report: Sony To Unveil PS4 Virtual Reality Headset

Sony plans to showcase a PS4-compatible virtual reality headset soon, at least according to the latest buzz.

Both Eurogamer and CVG have heard from multiple sources claiming that the device has been designed in-house (as opposed to, say, just using the Oculus Rift), and is already in the hands on first party developers. For example, Evolution Studios are reportedly testing it for use with DriveClub, which is viewed entirely from a first person perspective.

However, the two sites differ on exactly when Sony will make the announcement - with CVG claiming that it may happen as soon as this year's Tokyo Game Show while Eurogamer suggest a 2014 debut.

If true, it's possible that Sony's headset is a derivative of the HMZ Personal 3D viewer (pictured above), which was revealed at last year's TGS. Watch this space - could PS4 be making a push for mass market Virtual Reality?

Awesome news - so long as prices aren't silly.
