Jed Ashforth

Founder

Jed was the Senior Game Designer and Immersive Experience Specialist for the PlayStation VR project. Former Game Director on Sony's multi-platinum selling MotorStorm series, Jed was one of the founders of the original Project Morpheus R&D team, and throughout the lifetime of the project, Jed’s key role has been to identify and gain insight to the many new and unusual opportunities and challenges that the medium presented to PlayStation developers and users.

How We Can Help You

We were founder members of the PlayStation VR project, forming the core of PlayStations “Immersive Technology Group” where we guided the device through the full journey from prototype to market and everything in between, helping steer Hardware design, System Software design, and content development for many of the major games. We quite literally wrote the book on VR Game Design and VR Comfort for Sony. At Realised Realities we are extremely proud of our heritage and pedigree stretching all the way back to high-end Military Simulation VR back in the 90s, and our broad experience in all aspects of VR development, production and design.
