Featuring 7.1 audio, the wireless HMZ-T3W Personal 3D Viewer promises VR gaming for PS3 and Windows PC users.
The The £1300 headset (a little over $2,000) isn’t a dedicated gaming device, but it does offer 720p OLED displays if you’d like to strap your favorite PS3 and Win 8 game to your head. Right now, the HMZ-T3W is only listed on the Sony UK site, but we’ll keep an eye out for a release here in the U.S.
Meanwhile, Sony’s developing their own direct competitor to the Oculus Rift, with a planned 2014 device promising immersive gaming for their newest console. Will this be bundled-in hardware for the PS4? More importantly, will it be the company’s next PlayStation Eye or PlayStation Move? I’m hoping for more dedicated VR support from developers, and if Sony got behind it in a big way–particularly with indie devs–maybe this technology might get off the ground.
Speaking of the Oculus Rift, during PAX Prime, our own Kevin Kelly got some hands-on time with the VR headset.
