Remember Project Morpheus, the codename for Sony’s virtual reality headset? Well, it’s now been renamed PlayStation VR.

Sony made the announcement at its keynote presentation at the Tokyo Game Show.

And since there’s nothing like a tweet to make things super official:

Sony also told the TGS audience (and everyone watching via live stream) that several VR-ready games would be playable on the show’s floor. We’re very jealous right now, because this marks the first real public showing of Sony’s VR work, which is giving people a taste of what to expect ahead of competing VR headsets the Oculus Rift and Valve’s Vive.

No launch date was mentioned, sadly, but at least Sony didn’t mention a delay, which means it’ll still get here in 2016.

As what it will cost, however, is still anyone’s guess.

Deon got his first taste of PC gaming at the tender age of 11 when his father bought an 8088 XT, ostensibly to "help him with his homework". Instead, it introduced him to Leisure Suit Larry, King Graham, Sonny Bonds and many more, and Deon has been a PC gamer and hardware enthusiast ever since. He landed his first professional writing gig in 2006 at a prestigious local PC magazine, a very happy happenstance as he got to write for a living about things he loves - tech, PCs, gaming, and everything in between. He's been writing about it all ever since, and loves every minute of it.
