By Malathi Nayak SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Sony Corp unveiled a prototype for a new virtual reality headset accessory for its Playstation 4 games console on Tuesday at the annual Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, as it bids to further acceptance of the concept. The headset, still in development under the name Project Morpheus, is designed to provide an immersive experience for gamers by projecting a virtual reality image in front of their eyes that shifts as it tracks the movement of their head. Sony has been eager to popularise virtual reality goggles, releasing its first personal 3D viewer for watching movies in August 2011, but the concept has been slow to catch on among users that rejected it as clunky and gimmicky. However, Project Morpheus marks the first specialist gaming headset from Sony Computer Entertainment, which has been experimenting with the format since 2010.
