The 2014 Game Developers Conference starts in San Francisco next week, and as previously rumored and hinted at, Sony may use this event to formally announce its PlayStation virtual reality headset. According to Edge, some developers may already have the hardware right now.
Sony’s “Driving the Future of Innovation” GDC presentation will take place on March 18, with Sony Computer Entertainment America research and development executives leading the talk. According to unnamed developers who have tried the Sony headset, the device surpasses the original Oculus Rift devkit.
Of course, Oculus has refined its headset since its initial debut, tweaking latency in an effort to lower the related nausea and improving visuals with a 1080p display. But the Rift is–as of now–still a PC-centric device, and a big push from Sony could finally launch the VR hype into the console space.
