Sony may be planning on competing against Oculus Rift. Three different reports claim that Sony is working on a similar VR headset for PS4, although there are conflicting reports as to when the supposed device will be debuted.

According to multiple sources, the device is being demonstrated with DriveClub, with players able to look around the cockpit of the car while driving.

Eurogamer claims that the headset will debut in 2014, but CVG claims that the device will be shown off at Tokyo Game Show later this month.

If Sony is developing VR internally, it seems unlikely that they will work with Oculus. Earlier this year, Sony's Shuhei Yoshida said that he loved the device.

        Maybe, unless it means the console gets an inferior VR headset and they block you from using the OR. I would be very sad about that.

        Yes, expect for everything pointing to this VR being just a new update to their old "3d" headsets that were complete shit (and not even VR).
