Sony seems to be readying a new AR head-mounted device for reveal at this year's Tokyo Game Show.

Spotted by NeoGaf member onQ123, a video clip on Sony's Official YouTube channels shows a prototype of the device, along with the following google translated text:

Other companies, such as Valve, are also working on AR head mounted displays. Looks like this is the new 3D.

Thanks, VG247.

already got the original HMZ-T1, its bloody brilliant and bloody expensive, cost me £700 down from £800 so im guessing in the range of £900-£1000 for this new model although it does look very similar apart from the camera on the front, i know there is a HMZ-T2 but the only real difference there is a true cinema 24fps mode and no built in headphones!

I wonder if this will be anything like the Oculus Rift that was shown not long ago?
