As the end of this month is near, there is no doubt that the most anticipated gaming event E3 is only a couple months away.
As E3 creeps closer, we are hearing more and more information of Sony’s projects. There are news of backwards compatibility, virtual reality, and beyond.
An industry insider Ahsan Rasheed who has a good track record with leaked information has recently posted a lot of interesting news on twitter:
Be excited: 1. Local PS2 / PS1 support on PS4 w/ native 1080p rendering for select titles. 2. Bluray+Media Player updates
3. VR demos from at future events 4. PS4 exclusive game stuff 5. PlayStation Now launch
Number 1 I’ve known for a good minute, but software is still buggy and not every game works. Please be excited.
He even goes on about the recent developments of Sony’s upcoming virtual reality headset called Project Morpheus:
Devs I’m talking to really want to try Morpheus. Community feels like it is the best way to introduce VR to mainstream consumers.
Oh and Sony has opened the floodgates asking for open criticism from third parties on Morpheus and what they want to see in a final product.
If you are interested in how Sony is approaching Morpheus, they are designing it similar to PS4 and Dualshock 4. Taking developer feedback.
If these are true, this is going to create an excitement that many have been anticipating.
The world has been asking for backwards compatibility, and Sony is a step closer thanks to Gaikai and the power of streaming service. If they are able to run the games at a crisp Native 1080p, that will definitely be something I would love the see the gaming world react to.
As for Project Morpheus, the design of the headset did not create as much positive feedback as they had hoped so Sony has been reaching out to developers for more advice on their new virtual reality technology.
