Sony's foray into the Virtual Reality space was confirmed almost a year and a half ago under the codename 'Project Morpheus'. Now, Sony is bestowing an official name for the project in the form of the not too surprising 'PlayStation VR' moniker.
The name was revealed at the Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia (SCEJA) press event being held prior to the 'Tokyo Game Show' (TGS). Sony EVP, Division president of PS Product Business and VP, Software Design Division Masayasu Ito stated:
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
And further added that:
“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.”
The press release goes on to say that we should be on the look out for news on PlayStation VR "in the coming months", which may mean that it could take center stage at Augmented World Expo Asia, PAX Australia or CES 2016.
