Video: Announcing The Assembly for PS4 and Project Morpheus

16w ago - Today nDreams CEO Patrick O'Luanaigh announced that The Assembly for PS4 and Project Morpheus is coming to PlayStation 4 with a video trailer below.

To quote: Hi! We're announcing our first major VR game today for PS4 with full support for the fantastic Project Morpheus VR headset.

You probably haven't heard of our studio (nDreams) before unless you use PlayStation Home, but we're a fast-growing team of around 28 based in Farnborough in the UK, and we've been developing and publishing for around seven years. The Assembly is a mysterious VR adventure game that we have designed for VR from day one.

We were fortunate enough to start using VR headsets in the middle of 2013. Since then we've been experimenting, prototyping and trying all sorts of unusual ideas out. The Assembly includes lots of the gameplay mechanics that we found worked well in VR.





For example, you get to control two different characters at various points, and in VR, you really notice details like their different heights, sounds and voices. Rather than playing as a silent character, we found that playing the role of characters in the story works really well, and helps make The Assembly feel quite different to most other VR projects.

To quote: "Sony's Project Morpheus team attended the 10th Silicon Valley Virtual Reality Meetup and gave a demonstration of the headset using the Castle demo, and YouTube user [Register or Login to view links] posted a great clip showing [Register or Login to view links] as he tries it out.

The video is really interesting, as the camera angle lets us catch a very good glimpse on the headset's tracking capabilities when paired with PlayStation Move, and what we see is definitely impressive.

You can check out the video for yourself below."

Project Morpheus: Experiencing PS4's Virtual Reality Prototype

28w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman detailed Project Morpheus today, sharing his experiences with PS4's Virtual Reality Prototype.

Below are all the details, to quote: Project Morpheus is PlayStation's prototype virtual reality system for PS4, announced earlier this week at GDC.

Despite its pre-release status, Morpheus is a sleek, eye-catching piece of hardware that feels surprisingly comfy once strapped to your cranium.

This is partly due to a clever design that distributes most of the unit's weight to the top of your head, not the bridge of your nose or other delicate pressure points.

Properly seated, the unit sits snugly over your eyes but rests comfortably on your face. You peer through two separate lenses, which resolves into one immersive, high definition image that provides a convincing sense of depth.

I tried out two demos: EVE Valkyrie, a fast-paced arcade-style dogfighting simulation set in outer space, and The Deep, a face-to-face encounter with a prowling great white shark. Each of these demos was radically different, expressing radically different approaches to virtual reality gaming.

Of the two demos, EVE Valkyrie's...

To quote: Greetings from GDC 2014! Earlier this evening, I had the pleasure to introduce Project Morpheus, SCE's prototype virtual reality (VR) system that works with PS4. Virtual reality is the next innovation from SCE that we believe will shape the future of games.

I have long dreamed about VR and the possibilities it brings in regards to game development. This new technology will deliver a sense of presence, where you as the player actually feel like you're inside the game and your emotions feel that much more real.

Our current prototype for Project Morpheus features a head mounted display with 1080p resolution and a 90 degree field of view. Accelerometer and gyroscope sensors built into the head mounted unit as well as PlayStation Camera accurately tracks head orientation and movement, so as your head rotates, the image of the virtual world rotates intuitively in real-time.

Project Morpheus also features our new 3D audio technology that re-creates stereoscopic sounds in all directions and changes in real-time depending...
