Shuhei Yoshida: “Many Developers Are Very Interested” in Morpheus; New Content “Hopefully” By E3

Now that the news about Sony’s virtual reality headset Project Morpheus are out in the wild, the device will live or die on its adoption not only by gamers, but also by developers. Luckily Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida is confident in the interest of studios in the machine, as he told Engadget in an interview.

We know that many developers are very interested in working with it. I have huge hopes for indie developers, because they have really great new ideas.

Yoshida-san also added that he hopes to see new content for Morpheus appear at this year’s E3:

I’m so excited to get it in the hands of PS4 developers. We really want to give a lot of time to developers so that they can come up with really interesting new ideas and demos, and hopefully by E3… I’m so looking forward to see some new content.

That’s actually quite a lofty goal, since the headset hasn’t been yet distributed in large numbers to developers, and E3 is less than three months away. Will Yoshida-san’s beloved indies manage to produce something interesting in time? We can only wait and see.
