    PlayStation 4 only, but anything's possible.

    'Is there a future beyond the console world?'
    'We're not discussing product decisions today.'

    Project Morpheus works in conjunction with PS Move, will there be any feedback?
    'Down the road, I think we will definitely see haptics in VR.'

    That's the end of Sony's presentation. What do you think guys? Thanks to VRfocus for the coverage http://vrfocus.com/ also https://twitter.com/Cb_VRGeek & https://twitter.com/karlkrantz for some of the pictures. If you were in any doubt before, I think it's pretty obvious now that VR is happening. It IS the future. Thank you Virtuix for letting me explore it with my own two feet.

    When VR Project Morpheus is released early 2016, I then will buy a Virtuix Omni, especially if they come out with Anime type interactive games, I would not mind chasing a few anime chicks around.... heh heh heh
