    It's satire. They are making fun of the way Sony is pushing VR.

    Seems more directed at the continuing "PS4 has no games" meme, which E3 did not help.

    I think there is some of that too. But the fake Sony rep is clearly imitating the real Sony reps that are out there promoting the Morpheus. I think it's fair to say the joke centers around how Sony keeps claiming its focused on games, but then spends so much time pushing other things (e.g., Morpheus and Playstation TV).

    I don't think Morpheus has anything to do with it. If they wanted to satire VR the much more obvious and relevant option would be Oculus and Facebook.

    Look at these Americans trying to understand satire. Cute.

    I know you want to interpret it in a way that makes Sony and the PS4 look the worst, but you'd have to be blind to not see the connection to the Morpheus. In the piece, they are supposedly introducing the IntraPlay, which represents the future of gaming. That's currently the tagline being used to promote the Morpheus. They focus on how the IntraPlay offers an "unprecedented level of gameplay immersion." Once again, that's one of the common statements being used to promote the Morpheus. They end it by talking about the disorientation and discomfort that can come along with using the IntraPlay. Which is one of the biggest criticisms of VR in general and a hot button issue being addressed for the Morpheus. The whole thing is a spoof of Sony's market strategy for the Morpheus. It's not even subtle. It should be obvious to anyone who isn't biased.

    Its not that deep. They define exactly what they mean in the first 15 seconds of the video.

    "Sony representatives at this weeks E3 unveiled their latest update for the PS4. A feature called 'Intraplay' that allows gamers to close their eyes and imagine they are playing a really fun game".

    If the PS4 already had "really fun games", the joke wouldn't work.

    Your cape is showing.
