At its Tokyo Game Show 2015 press conference in Japan, Sony revealed the final name for Project Morpheus, the PlayStation 4 virtual reality headset scheduled to release during the first half of 2016. It’s (quite simply) “PlayStation VR”.
“The name ‘PlayStation VR’ not only directly expresses an entirely new experience from PlayStation that allows players to feel as if they are physically inside the virtual world of a game, but it also reflects our hopes that we want our users to feel a sense of familiarity as they enjoy this amazing experience,” said Masayasu Ito, EVP, Division president of PS Product Business and VP, Software Design Division.
“We will continue to refine the hardware from various aspects, while working alongside 3rd party developers and publishers and SCE Worldwide Studios, in order to bring content that deliver exciting experiences only made possible with VR.”
Along with its final name, Sony also released the following trailer showcasing some of the VR games in development for the device.
