North West Studio is a UK-based company that will be developing content for Sony's Project Morpheus headset, with jobs listed with the studio referencing an "exciting and rare opportunity to join an ambitious new studio to create original games exclusively for Project Morpheus, PlayStation's VR platform".

Sony's new studio is located in northwestern England, where the Japanese gaming company wants to build a "small but highly experienced team who want to build great games to showcase this exciting new immersive technology". We should hopefully see what North West Studio will be working on at E3 2015 next month.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
