Presumably during the ‘Driving the Future of Innovation’ talk on Tuesday

Sources familiar with Sony’s virtual-reality headset believe the company will showcase the device next week during the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, reports Edge.

A prototype is reportedly in the hands of some third-party developers. These sources have described the VR headset as being superior to earlier versions of its main competition, the Oculus Rift, which isn’t saying much — Oculus VR itself has made advancements with its newer models.

Regardless, having multiple companies invested in making this whole virtual reality thing finally pan out — whether it be Sony, or Oculus, or Valve — is good for the field. As far as this supposed GDC reveal goes, however, it sounds like there’s not much in the way of software yet. You don’t say…
