Sony to show off 3D VR headset prototype at TGS

A new video on Sony's Japanese YouTube channel teases a prototype head-mounted display set to be unveiled at this year's Tokyo Game Show, during the public days (Sept 22 and 23). They call it the Prototype-SR and it features a full head-tracking system and a front-facing camera that let the wearer experience immersive 360 degree movement. Sony calls it the future of entertainment. 

This prototype looks a lot like that goofy Sony visort that we tried out during CES earlier this year. It seems that they've worked to tweak this design into something more focused, with some AR tech added on. Maybe the Oculus Rift gave them the push they needed to improve the device for gaming.

We'll be there to brave the crowds next week to try this thing on.
