Virtual Reality Making a Splash at GDC

Virtual Reality is making itself felt at this week's Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. During today's events, both Sony and Valve made major announcements about VR technology.

Project Morpheus, the VR headset for PlayStation 4, is now scheduled for an early 2016 release. Read more at Eurogamer.

Morpheus headset will boast a 5.7 inch OLED screen, with a resolution of 1920x1080. Impressively, it'll boast a 120Hz refresh rate - besting the 90Hz in the Vive headset that HTC is making in partnership with Valve, and also the 75Hz that Oculus Rift DK2 currently runs at.

Valve also made an announcement that its VR headset, Vive, will be released to developers this spring and available to consumers by the end of the year.

Valve also announced that its Steam machines will be allowed on home networks for streaming access from any PC in the house. Lastly, the Source 2 engine, successor to the Source engine, will be made available to content creators at no cost.
