At the Tokyo Game Show today, Sony has finally announced the consumer name for Project Morpheus, their virtual reality headset which was initially announced at the Game Developers Conference in 2014.

It’s hardly an original name, but the new name for Project Morpheus is PlayStation VR. Sony announced the news at the Tokyo Game Show this morning with Masayasu Ito, EVP, Division president of PS Product Business and VP, Software Design Division saying:

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.

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.

More PlayStation VR is set to be announced soon, so stay tuned for that.
