Independent virtual reality development is evolving rapidly, and the state of the art is a moving target. Innovation will happen on the PC, and Sony will benefit from picking from the best from that world before polishing it for consoles. Console audiences aren’t as excited about trying half-finished games or buggy initial releases and will be looking for strong, finished games for their hardware. Think of Project Morpheus as a platform where the greatest indie hits of the Rift will find a home, and the flotsam will be ignored.

...

Sony is open about the fact that Morpheus may never be released to the public, but the quality of the hardware and software demos at GDC are a good indication that they’re taking virtual reality seriously. A future where the Oculus Rift is home to the most interesting and innovative virtual reality games while serving as a sort of incubator for Project Morpheus games isn’t hard to imagine. More than one Rift developer I spoke to at GDC mentioned, as a sort of half-serious joke, that they were hoping for a call from Sony about their game.

Wait, so PS/4 will support Oculus instead of Morpheus? *confused*
