Sony Doesn’t Have Any Plans to Make Project Morpheus Wireless

March 5, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

To give us a better look at the new Project Morpheus prototype and its various specs, Sony released a new video for the device, which is set to launch in the first half of 2016.

Although you don’t see it in the video, Morpheus will include a cable to the PlayStation 4. Speaking with GameSpot, Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida explained that there’s no plans for a wireless version of the VR headset. This is because sending 1080p/120Hz experiences to the device require a data transfer speed that only comes from a wired connection.

As Shuhei said yesterday, the cord won’t be so obtrusive that it chokes you during gameplay.

While most of the Project Morpheus games so far have simply been tech demos, Shuhei did reveal that many of Sony’s studios are working on actual games for VR, though he wouldn’t say which ones. Although it isn’t 100%, we may see those games at E3 2015, alongside more demos.

For other companies outside of Sony, Shuhei notes that most of the larger publishers want to hold off on VR until there’s “enough of an install base.”

Which first-party developers do hope are making VR games right now?
