Project Morpheus, the virtual reality headset for PlayStation 4, has been officially renamed PlayStation VR, Sony announced during SCEJA Press Conference 2015.

“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.”

At the Tokyo Gmae Show this week, various PlayStation VR demos will be playable, including Danganronpa VR, Final Fantasy XIV Online, Hatsune Miku: VR Tech Demo, Aquarion Evol, RIGS: Mechanized Combat League, Dynasty Warriors 8: VR Demo, Kitchen, The Playroom VR, Joysound VR, and Summer Lesson.

PlayStation VR is due out in the first half of 2016.
