Sony Santa Monica May Be Working on Something for Sony’s New Virtual Reality Headset

Ahsan Rasheed, also known as Thuway, has been dropping quite a bit of interesting information lately. He’s known as a fairly reliable industry insider that has been proven wrong rarely and today he had something to say about the rumored virtual reality headset Sony should be working on, and will possibly be announced at CES.

E3 came and went, the surprise never showed up, I’m beginning to think its the VR headset. I hear Santa Monica is doing something with it.

Whatever the teams at Sony Santa Monica studios have been doing in the past few months, it has been kept closely under wraps, so it’s quite possible that one of them they may indeed be working on applications for the VR headset.

Of course you should definitely treat this as an unconfirmed rumor until an official announcement is made directly by Sony. We’ll keep you updated if anything more surfaces on the topic.

    So this confirms two 1st party teams are working with VR tech (Santa Monica & Evolution). If the VR headset isn’t shown at CES than it most likely won’t be shown until E3.

      I doubt they’ll wait all the way until E3. Definitely count on an appearance at CES or the least, PlayStation Meeting 2014.

        There’s no such thing as a PlayStation Meeting 2014…

          Who ever said there won’t be one?

          • theodor70941

            Based on Sony’s history there won’t be one since Sony’s only had PlayStation Meetings in the past when they were about to reveal a new console successor… But there might still be a PS Meeting this year, but I just don’t believe there to be one this year or any time soon!

            Well times are changing and since Sony are most likely working on the VR headset, they will show that new hardware their since it is new tech from them as a company.

            Sony have in fact made VR headsets in the past however they’ve never really taken the time to market them! check this video out

            Yeah I see what you mean. Love 3D and hope they are working on a headset.

    I am gonna be so pissed if I have to buy a proprietary headset for the PS4 that doesn’t work on PC. In that, I wouldn’t buy it.

      If it’s cheap I wouldn’t mind at all, but looking at the targeted price of the Rift… Yeah, I’ll probably be sitting this one out.
