Project Morpheus Officially Now Called PlayStation VR


Sony has announced that Project Morpheus will now officially be called PlayStation VR. The PlayStation 4 virtual reality headset’s new name was revealed at Sony Japan’s Press Conference earlier this morning.

Fred Dutton, manager of PlayStation Blog Europe, posted the following:

We’ve a brief update for you today on the PS4 virtual reality headset. Earlier this morning at the SCEJA Press Conference 2015 in Tokyo we announced the official name for the system: 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.”

Look out for more news on PlayStation VR in the coming months.

Well, if nothing else, “PlayStation VR” does exactly what it says on the tin. No news yet on a release date or price, however.

So what do you think? Is it a good name or a very uninspired one? Let us know in the comments or on our Facebook page.
