No Man's Sky on Morpheus? "I don't know what I'm allowed to say"

Let's face it. We've all been thinking how good the never ending No Man's Sky would be on Sony's Morpheus VR headset. Surprise surprise, we're not the only ones. Speaking to Edge Magazine for its new issue, creator Sean Murray dangles a very juicy carrot.

"I don't know what I'm allowed to say," he replies when questioned about the prospect. "It's something we're thinking about. Morpheus, Oculus... There's nothing more cool and sci-fi than VR and a big procedural universe. I think that, for the people who want to just explore, and even for the space combat and things like that, it would be a good fit. Let's put it that way."

That's a very careful statement but come Morpheus and Oculus release next year, it doesn't sound too far fetched that we might have a chance to truly live in the world of No Man's Sky. This is almost too exciting to think about in case productivity drops to a dangerous new low. Given the procedurally generated eternity on offer, we might not ever come back.

No Man's Sky doesn't have a release date yet but you can find out more in the exclusive feature in the new Edge Magazine out on Friday. You can find it on shelves, downloaddigitallyorsubscribeto future issues.
