Sony to Show Off VR Headset at TGS

There was Google's Project Glass, and then Oculus Rift's successful Kickstarter. More recently, Valve revealed that it had its own VR headset project in the works (though it's not clear whether or not the company will ever actually officially produce these headsets.)

Now, a video from Sony's official YouTube confirms that it'll be showing off a VR headset of its own at the Japanese videogame expo Tokyo Game Show.

With so many big players investing heavily in VR technology, it's likely that it'll be the novelty for next-gen. Still, the 3D hype was rather short-lived, and it's hard to forget the failed VR headsets of the past. (Remember the Sega VR?) Will VR be fleshed out enough to stay with the industry, or will it be yet another industry flop?

    The HMZ-T1 was at such a high price point that you'd think they didn't want it to be a success.

    Man I never thought I would see the day. I remember the talk of VR when I was a kid in the 80's, so many movies made it look awesome. Then when there were some actual attempts in the 90's, but they were beyond lame.

    Hopefully this new wave of VR prototypes will spawn something great. I think that we are at a point technology-wise that this is feasible now.

    Meh, regardless of what technological-advancement a VR headset might bring, I could never get excited about it for PC gaming.
