Sony’s Tokyo Game Show press conference was the source of many new game announcements and reveals. It will also go down in history as the place where Project Morpheus got its official name.
Project Morpheus has dropped the codename and is now aptly titled PlayStation VR. While no release date or price point were given, Sony did make assurances it would be refining the virtual reality hardware and working with studios to produce games for the product over the coming months. PlayStation VR is still expected to launch sometime in early 2016.
While Project Morpheus sounded cooler, it makes perfect sense why Sony abandoned the codename for something that easily identifies what the product is and ties it to the PlayStation brand. As of now I am much more excited for the PS4 software lineup in 2016, but I am eager to experience the PlayStation VR for myself.
