Sony PlayStation 4 Showcase At Paris Games Week Includes VR, New Game Trailers, And New Games

Sony Computer Entertainment’s PlayStation 4 was busy this week at the Paris Games Week, as Sony unveiled new gameplay footage from games in the works, trailers announcing brand new games, and the potential of the Sony PlayStation VR headset was put on display.

The PlayStation VR headset, formerly known as Project Morpheus, had its keynote stage time on Tuesday. No release date was announced for the VR headset, but is still expected to be sometime in the first half of 2016. Sony did demonstrate the headset’s capabilities with current games the headset will tie-in to, and with newly-announced games.
