The Oculus Rift had a good showing last GDC and has captured imaginations in the year since as its development progressed. Its inventor has said that consoles are "too weak" for the Rift, dashing any hopes of playing Gran Turismo 6 with the thing.

But Sony's been rumored to be working on their own virtual reality headset. According to a Tech Radar source, it's going to be revealed next month at GDC. "The quality and resolution are really, really good," the source said. "People will definitely be impressed with what Sony's built."

Apparently, "Sony has deliberately taken its time to tweak and polish the headset before revealing it," as opposed to the Rift, which basically debuted as goggles and duct tape. While the Rift is quite cool, Sony is probably in a better position to come up with a mass market VR option, especially riding on the PS4's big sales numbers and general fervor.

I mean, people actually bought 3D TVs. I was talking to someone yesterday who was going to pick up a pair of 3D glasses for his TV.

A head in the poles: Project Totem is platforming fun

Press Play proved it can make a platformer with Max and the Curse of Brotherhood, but it wasn't meant to test your muscle memory and invite speed running. It was a colorful adventure with some charm and plenty of stopping for...more

Preview: Armello combines board games, trading card games, strategy RPG play

I met League of Geeks' Trent Kusters at GDC a few weeks back. We just missed each other at Bitsummit just a week before, but I'm glad we were able to finally meet up as I would have missed seeing a really cool game.  Kus...more
