One year on from Project Morpheus’ reveal at GDC 2104, Shuhei Yoshida just unveiled the newest prototype – now sporting some significant upgrades.

Yoshida also revealed that the system will finally ship to retail in the first half of 2016, Quarter 2 to be precise.
Elsewhere, Yoshida proudly announced the tech teams at Sony had managed to reduce latency on the headset (presumably overall motion to photons) to 18ms “..less than half of the first prototype.”
