In Medieval times Morpheus was heralded as the god of dreams and sleepers. Originally he was written about in Ovid’s Metamorphoses, though later writers throughout the medieval era would use him in their stories as well. Event to this day Morpheus still exists in much of fiction.
Outside of medieval fiction and into the reality of our modern era, the name Morpheus may soon come to mean something much more interesting and important. Morpheus being the name that Sony has given to it’s latest virtual reality project for the PS4. Morpheus is a VR headset that takes the place of your television screen and will supposedly allow you to get fully immersed into the world of the game. Recently Sony unveiled the Morpheus at the GDC and gave out a full presentation on the machine and what it can and will do.
For people like us who are interested in the idea of virtual reality this is potentially a great landmark in the way gaming will be done in the future.
I’m mostly interested in all of the possibilities for playing my large collection of Japanese porn games in VR. That will be FUCKING AWESOME!
