Sony has revealed it plans to launch a VR competitor to the Oculus Rift for its PlayStation 4 console at the Gamer's Development Conference in San Francisco
Sony appears to have confirmed plans that it will be bringing out a virtual reality headset to accompany the PlayStation 4 later this year.
An inside source spoke to T3.com's sister site TechRadar confirming the Japanese gaming giant will be revealing a headset next month at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.
Previous rumours had tipped Sony's headset for a possible Tokyo Game Show reveal, but it now looks like we'll be seeing it a lot sooner.
"Sony has deliberately taken its time to tweak and polish the headset before revealing it," said the source.
Sony has dipped a toe into the pool of personal headsets before with the HMZ-T3W, but hasn't yet ventured as far as gaming. That looks set to change although the company itself declined to comment on this story.
Last July, T3.com came up with a concept for an Oculus Rift/PlayStation blended headset. Check it out here and see what you think.
