John Carmack cautious over Sony's new VR headset

Oculus CTO explains the limitations of VR on the PS4

Oculus Rift chief technical officer John Carmack has advised folks not to expect too much from Sony's Project Morpheus VR headset.

Carmack explained that while the PS4 is capable of running a decent VR experience at 30fps it's not quite the same experience as a high-end PC can deliver on Oculus Rift.

He said on Twitter, “Calibrate PS4 VR expectations: a game that ran 60 fps on PS3 could be done in VR (stereo 1080 MSAA low latency 60 fps) on PS4. That wasn’t sniping; I think PS4 is a great platform, sufficient to drive VR. People just need to understand the demands.” John Carmack cautious over Sony's new VR headset

Sony has only just unveiled their VR headset, which is still in prototyping, so it's still unclear what its capabilities are but they probably won't match a high-end PC running Oculus Rift.

Thanks DSOG.
