    Sony GDC talk announced amid VR rumours

    The first details of a noteworthy Game Developers Conference session due to be hosted next week by key figures at Sony Computer Entertainment have emerged, amid rumours that the platform holder is set to announce PlayStation-branded virtual reality hardware.

    'Driving the Future of Innovation at Sony Computer Entertainment' will be presented by SCE Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida, SCEA R&D senior director Richard Marks, and SCEA R&D senior software engineer Anton Mikhailov.


    Yoshida heads up Sony's first party software development, while Marks is best known as the creator of EyeToy and PS Move.

    The GDC session will take place next Tuesday, March 18 from 5:45pm - 6:45pm PST (00:45am - 01:45am UK time on Wednesday March 19).

    A purported inside source told TechRadar last month that the long-rumoured PlayStation virtual reality headset will be revealed for the first time at GDC.

    CVG understands that Sony had originally intended to debut the Oculus Rift-like device at Gamescom in August 2013, but delayed the reveal until September's Tokyo Games Show, before again pushing it back in order to allow more time to develop the hardware before offering it up for public scrutiny.

    A games developer familiar with Sony's plans, who wished to remain anonymous, recently told CVG that Evolution Studios is currently working with the device to simulate a $#@!pit view on its PS4 title DriveClub.

    In August, Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida suggested to CVG that R&D work on such a device was currently underway.

    "You know, we're Sony, so we have lots of different things and different ideas in R&D," he said when asked if the corporation was building a VR headset. "When it comes to researching things, we are doing a lot of things that we can't talk about."

    I can't wait to see what Sony have in store.

    Richard Marks always creates cool things for Sony that don't get the support they need until someone else gets attention for making it popular and subsequently accuse Sony of ripping off.

    They should tie in the VR headset with the PS MOVE. That would also add much more to it as well. Use it on your PS4 while using a PS4 controller or the PS Move = awesomeness.
