Sony's foray in to VR worlds just got a bit more real.

Sony showed their commitment to their PlayStation VR virtual reality headset (previously titled Project Morpheus) at Paris Games Week, with new game announcements to sit alongside re-showings of titles announced at E3.

Who doesn’t want to run around with dinosaurs? Most sane people – take note InGen – but doing it virtually looks like a great rush.

No release date for the headset has been announced, but with the ramp up in marketing activity and the polish on some of the titles we’ve been shown, mid-2016 seems like a good bet. Lining up nicely with that bet is the now known release date of No Man’s Sky – a game with a feverish following that would quite possibly explode if it became a launch title for PlayStation VR.
