Sony announced the new name for the Project Morpheus headset: 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,” PlayStation product business president Masayasu Ito said atthe company’s Tokyo Game Show press conference this week.

The headset is expected to be released during the first half of 2016.

Thanks to Engadget for the heads up.
