PlayStation VR, known by the codename Project Morpheus during development, is a virtual reality gaming head-mounted display developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment, and manufactured by Sony Corporation. It was released on October 13, 2016.
It is designed to be functional with the PlayStation 4 video game system. In certain games and demos for the VR, the player wearing the headset acts separately from other players without the headset. The video output projects differently for the headset and the console, and sometimes requires the PlayStation Move controllers.
The PlayStation VR has a 5.7 inch OLED panel, with an RGB sub-pixel matrix resolution of 1080p, or 960xRGBx1080 per eye. The headset also has a processor box which allows the headset to "second screen" the video output directly towards any monitor, as well as elevate the 3D audio effect used in 3.5mm headphone jacks. The headset also has 9 positional LED's on its surface for the PlayStation Camera to track 360 degree head movement, and connects to the PlayStation by HDMI or USB.
