A SCEE group studio manager has reported that Sony is currently researching ways to create virtual-reality games for Sony's recently announced 3D headset.

In keeping with its E3 showing the company is reportedly taking its 3D games technology push to the next-level.

According to Sony Europe group studio manager Mick Hocking the company is currently researching ways to integrate its recently revealed 3D headset into virtual-reality games.

The headset was first shown at this year's E3. Resembling the headset utilised by comic character Cyclops, it will reportedly boast twin 720p OLED displays and 5.1 surround sound.

According to a report from GameSpot when asked about future applications for gaming, Hocking commented:

"We've also got a new head-mounted display that we showed at CES that can produce really great quality 3D and a very immersive experience for games.

"The head-mounted display has twin-OLED screens; very high quality. At the moment it's just a head-mounted display; the head isn't being tracked -- but that's something we're doing R&D on."

Finally adding: "We're working with a couple of games at Sony that are experimenting with virtual-reality-type experiences."

Hocking did not say which of Sony's arsenal of consoles -- if any -- the company was developing VR games for, nor which of its development studios were working on the games.
