Sony announced its VR headset, currently called Project Morpheus, at Game Developer Conference.

I still haven't considered getting next gen consoles yet, but if developers can manage to come up with good titles for this VR headset then I would think about a PS4.

My one and only personal experience with a VR goggle goes back at least maybe 15 to 20 years ago in a computer convention where they were displaying a goggle using the PC game Descent (the first one). It wasn't all that great back then... Little more than a novelty. I'm not quite sure myself which kinds of games would a goggle be good for, except something that could trap me in a virtual world and threaten to zap my brain when I try to disconnect. har har. No. Maybe a driving or flight sim where if I rotate my head the entire FOV would follow (but I'd really hate to pay for yet ANOTHER expensive set of driving wheel + pedals just for PS4 like I know they'd make me do...)

I've known about OR for a long time but these guys had better hurry up before Sony gets theirs out the door first. Epic and Crytek are already onboard with Sony.
