Oculus Rift vs Project Morpheus: The VR headsets duke it out at E3

Oculus Rift vs Project Morpheus The VR headsets duke it out at E3 RN24 E3 RocketNews24


In honor of the world’s biggest gaming convention, Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus were put under one roof for a head-to-head virtual reality battle this week. Both offer players the chance to experience a level of immersion unlike anything that has gone before it in the world of video gaming. Both are astounding feats of technology.

Having tried both out at E3, however, we’ve decided there was clear winner.

The verdict

Never having experienced virtual reality before, I was really excited after getting a hands-on with Oculus Rift during the first day of E3 and I really enjoyed the experience. Project Morpheus, however, simply blew me away, immediately cheapening my encounter with the Rift. Both VR units are still far from finished, and even when the technology is ready to roll their success or failure will all depend on the experiences game developers create for them, but based solely on my E3 experience, at this point Sony’s Project Morpheus is the clear winner.
