Sony Computer Entertainment has now unveiled the official product name for the virtual reality system known as Project Morpheus.
Project Morpheus is now officially called PlayStation VR, a simple yet effective name that falls in like with a majority of PlayStation services and products.
“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.”
Players are able to use the VR headset as a way to fully emerge themselves in a virtual world. Placing the piece of hardware on their head, players can rotate their head in the full 360-degree virtual space. Utilising the PlayStation Camera, PlayStation Move and DualShock 4, players can fully explore virtual environments.
There is still no official consumer release date for PlayStation VR, but when it is announced, Analog Addiction will be there to let you know.
