sony-morpheus-gdc2014-hubert-nguyenEarlier this year Sony took the wraps off Project Morpheus which was basically Sony’s answer to the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset. Now we’re sure many are wondering when these devices will be making its way onto the market. Well the good news is that according to Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida, it might not be too long.

Speaking to The Wall Street Journal, Yoshida revealed that Project Morpheus is about 85% complete. Yoshida also claims that thanks to the components which are used largely in smartphones as well, costs of the headset will be kept relatively low, which is good news for would-be customers who had their eyes on the device.

Unfortunately while Yoshida did confirm that the headset is 85% complete, he did not provide a date as to when we might be able to expect it to be released, although 2014 has been ruled out, leaving us with the possibility of seeing its release next year at the earliest. Coincidentally it looks like Oculus VR could be close to releasing a consumer model as well.

The company had announced yesterday the Crescent Bay prototype which puts them one step closer to finalizing the device and having a consumer version ready, which last we heard could be priced anywhere between $200-$400.
